The Korean men’s and women’s 3×3 national team unfortunately failed to advance to the main draw.

First, the men’s 3×3 national team won the final game against Tonga in the 2023 Qualifying Draw Group B of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) 3×3 Asia Cup held at Singapore Sports Hub OCBC Square on the 30th (Korean time) by a 22-16 shutout victory. They had a good record of 2 wins and 1 loss, but they failed to qualify for the main draw.

In a situation where only the first place in each group could advance to the main draw, the 13-21 shutout loss to New Zealand was the fatal blow. Although this national team consisted of Heo Hoon, Kim Nak-hyeon, Song Gyo-chang, Park Jung-hyeon and all professional players, they were unable to cross the wall of New Zealand, which has a lot of experience in 3×3.

The men’s 3×3 team has been participating in the Asia Cup since 2018. I’ve never been knocked down in a qualifying draw before. However, this year, the ‘champion candidate’ New Zealand suffered the bitter taste of being eliminated due to the bad luck of being in the same group.

The women’s 3×3 national team also had hopes by winning two wins first, but lost 5-17 in the final game against Australia, and eventually failed to pass the qualifying draw.

3×3 basketball is a completely different sport from regular 5-on-5 games. That is why, even if all of them are made up of professional players, it is difficult to achieve good results if the preparation period is not sufficient.

3×3 basketball in Korea is developing gradually.카지노 But compared to other countries, the pace is definitely slower. It is certainly positive that we are moving forward, but if we do not keep up with the pace of development, we will eventually be at the bottom.

The failure of both men’s and women’s 3×3 teams to advance to the main draw carries many messages. Every year, we emphasize that we must change, develop, and strive, but the speed has not changed. Change is needed now. With six months left until the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, it is time to have a clear plan.
