 온라인바카라Compared to the long travel distance, there was not enough time to prepare for the game. Although there was only one foreign player, Hyundai Mobis actually defeated Ibaraki, which had four foreign players.

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis won 70-63 in a practice game against Ibaraki Robots held at the Adastria Mito Arena in Ibaraki, Japan on the 29th. Kebe Aluma (18 points, 12 rebounds) recorded a double-double, and Park Moo-bin (12 points, 3 3-pointers, 2 rebounds, 3 steals) and Kim Ji-wan (12 points, 5 assists) also steadily accumulated points.

It was a difficult match for Hyundai Mobis in maintaining their condition. The gymnasium where the game was held was 2 hours and 30 minutes away by bus from the hotel where Hyundai Mobis was staying. Hyundai Mobis arrived at the gym around 4 p.m., and the practice game started at 6 p.m. In addition, Gage Prim had to withdraw midway due to a minor foot injury.

Ibaraki is a mid- to lower-tier team that recorded 23 wins, 37 losses, and a winning percentage of .383 in the B. League last season. Recently, foreign players were replaced due to injuries.

However, the available number of people was greater than that of Hyundai Mobis. In addition to having three foreign players, there was even a naturalized player (Thomas Kennedy). In fact, there were four foreign players, and the time spent by all four at once was considerable. One Hyundai Mobis player even joked, “There are no Japanese players.”

Did you see the effects of intensive defensive training on the 28th? Hyundai Mobis started the game with only 1 point in the first 4 minutes of the first quarter, but turned the tide in the 2nd quarter. Effective 2-on-2 defense tied Ibaraki to 11 points, and with the addition of Kebe Aluma and Kim Jun-il, who were brought in to strengthen attack power, they took the lead.

Hyundai Mobis maintained its momentum in the third quarter, which was played with only domestic players except for the first three minutes. There was a defensive mistake at the beginning of the third quarter, but it was made up for by Jang Jae-seok’s blocked shot, and the guards increased the intensity of their pressure defense. Kim Tae-wan also induced the opponent to take an unreasonable shot even in a mismatch situation.

However, the finishing part of the game needed improvement. Hyundai Mobis made a mistake in switch defense at the beginning of the fourth quarter when the score was 51-44, allowing eight consecutive points and a comeback. In the end, Coach Dong-Hyeon Cho ordered 1-on-1 defense in the middle of the fourth quarter with a reprimand, “Aren’t you going to play defense?” After switching defense, Hyundai Mobis blocked Ibaraki with 6 points for about 4 minutes and finished the practice game with a comeback win.

The practice match between Hyundai Mobis and Ibaraki ended at 7:43 p.m. As it takes 2 hours and 30 minutes to return to the accommodation, Hyundai Mobis decided to hold only afternoon training instead of practice games on the 30th. Next, they plan to conclude their training camp in Japan by holding a practice game with Kawasaki Brave Thunder on October 1st.
