Kim Bo-bae (203 cm, F/C) came out of the woodwork. It will be a big boost for Yonsei to stay in sole possession of first place.

Yonsei won 104-48 away from home against Chosun University on Nov. 29 at Chosun University Gymnasium. All nine players who played at least 10 minutes recorded a point and a rebound, with Gil Sang-chan, who played 3:49 minutes, finishing with four points and a block.

Kim Seung-woo and Choi Hyung-chan combined for 44 points on nine three-pointers, while Kim Bo-bae had a long-awaited return to form with 17 points, seven rebounds, 토토사이트 four assists, and two blocks.

Kim, who averaged 10.5 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 23.35 minutes per game in six games last season, hadn’t scored in double figures in his sporadic appearances this season. He had averaged 2.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists in three games before the game against Chosun University.

Kim, who was called up to the Korea-Japan Men’s and Women’s National Collegiate Basketball Team (formerly known as the Sangsang Baekbae) in place of the injured Lee Kyu-tae, started against Joseon and put on a Kim-like performance.

He used his height advantage to grab rebounds, and even drove to the basket after collecting a defensive rebound. Yonsei continued to use the twin towers to capitalize on its height advantage, and Kim even made entry passes to big men in the paint. He also made his first career three-pointer (1-of-8).

Yonsei, which played at 2 p.m., won its seventh game in a row, followed by Korea University’s 65-73 upset of Chung-Ang University at 5 p.m. to move into sole possession of first place.

Yonsei has never won an undefeated season in the KU Basketball League outside of the COVID-19 pandemic. Its best regular-season finishes were 15-1 in 2013 and 2016. Its only regular-season title came in 2019 (13-3).

Injury ward KU is back to full strength with the return of Lee Do-yoon, Kim Do-eun, and Yang Jun.

Yonsei will face KU on Sept. 2, which has most of its injured players back.

Yonsei will need Kim Bo-bae to play well inside and outside if they want to beat not only their nemesis, but also KU for their first regular season title. That’s why it’s nice to see Kim make her presence felt, even if it’s against the underdog Chosun University.

Yonsei will try to win its eighth straight game at home against Sungkyunkwan University next month.
