Asian Games 3-on-3 Basketball to Wash Away the Pain of Jakarta 5 Years Ago, ‘Foul of Tonghan’ Director Kang Yang-hyeon selects Myung-jin Seo, Won-seok Lee, Doo-won Lee, and Dong-hyun Kim… First match against Iran on the 25th Five years ago, a new chapter in Korean basketball almost opened at the Gello Bung Karno (GBK) Basket Hall in Jakarta, Indonesia. 3-on-3 basketball became an official sport for the first time at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang. The 3-on-3 basketball team, led by coach Jeong Han-shin, advanced all the way to the finals in this unfamiliar sport. **[바카라사이트](** Victory was also within sight in the final against China held at the GBK Basket Hall. However, 4.4 seconds before the end of regular time when the team was ahead 17-15, Kim Nak-hyeon (Sangmu) committed a foul on the opposing team's Hwang Won-wei, who was attempting an outside shot, and allowed two free throws, making the score tied again. It was ruled that he had raised his hand too close to the opponent trying to shoot and hit Hwang Wen-wei's shooting hand. In normal 5-on-5 basketball, this scene could easily be considered a foul, but in 3-on-3 basketball, which allows for more rough physical fights, this type of defense occurs frequently, so it was even more disappointing. The game went into overtime, where the team that scored two points first won, and eventually lost 18-19. Forward Ahn Young-jun (SK), who played very well that day, was crouched in the corner of the court, holding his head, unable to stand up for a while. After the game, Kim Nak-hyun's disappointment, which he blamed himself for saying, "I lost because of myself," was indescribable. Above all, [Nak-Hyeon Kim]( was unable to raise his head as he interfered with the opponent's difficult shot due to running out of time, giving him an excuse to save the day. The national team players who lost the benefit of military exemption right before their eyes along with the gold medal are performing military service in their own way. Kim Nak-hyeon is currently in the Armed Forces Athletic Corps (Sangmu), and Ahn Young-jun is currently a full-time reserve officer. Park In-tae (LG) has already completed his career as a managing director and has become a ‘civilian’. Only Yang Hong-seok (LG) has not yet enlisted. These ‘first men’s national teams’ are all professional 5-on-5 basketball players. The same goes for the ‘2nd period’ led by director Kang Yang-hyeon. Ulsan Hyundai Mobis' guard Myung-jin Seo (187cm) and Seoul Samsung's center Lee Won-seok (207cm) are the mainstays of Kang Yang-hyun's system. Coach Kang also selected Suwon KT's center Lee Doo-won (204 cm) and paid attention to height. Lee Won-seok and Lee Doo-won were selected first and second in the [professional basketball rookie draft](, respectively, and are players who stand out for their athletic ability despite being over 2 meters tall. Kim Dong-hyun (190㎝, KCC), the son of coach Kim Seung-gi, who leads Goyang Sono, was evaluated as being suitable for 3-on-3 basketball, as he had a solid physique and showed confidence in individual attacks, just like his father during his active years. Coach Kang and these four players are trying to bring back the gold medal they missed five years ago at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Uzbekistan withdrew, so the 3-on-3 basketball, in which a total of 19 teams participated, was grouped with 5 teams in 3 groups, excluding Group C (4 teams). The first match is against Iran in Group B, which will be played on the court of [Huzhou Deqing Geographic Information Park]( near Hangzhou at 17:45 pm on the 25th, Korean time. The national team, which will play the second game against the Maldives at the same stadium at 17:45 on the 27th, will play the Korea-Japan match at 6:25 p.m. on the 28th, the beginning of the Chuseok holiday. The group stage will conclude with the final match against Turkmenistan at 2:25 p.m. on the 29th. The games are scheduled to be played one day apart, and 3-on-3 basketball is more intense than 5-on-5 basketball, so physical strength management and injury prevention are expected to be key.
