KB Son Bo admits after breaking 12-game losing streak “We shouldn’t relax… it’s important from now on”

After breaking their losing streak, KB Insurance men’s volleyball is looking to turn things around.

“We shouldn’t be relieved that we broke the 12-game losing streak,” said KB Insurance head coach Hoo In-jung before the Korean Air match at Gyeyang Gymnasium in Incheon on Tuesday. It’s more important from now on,” he said.

KB Insurance won its opening game of the season before going winless for 12 games before picking up its second win of the season against OK Financial Group on Nov. 6.

The 12-game losing streak is tied for the longest in team history.

KB Insurance (10-2, 12 points) is in seventh place, behind Hyundai Capital (13-3, 11 points).

“I kept telling the players that today’s game is important,” said Hoo. They all know what it means, so I think we will gradually play better and better.”

Meanwhile, Hwang Kyung-min, who was sidelined with a fractured rib, said, “I plan to accompany him on the field in two weeks,” adding that he could return to action as early as the fourth round.

Korean Air coach Tommy Tilikainen, who recently lost to Woori Card for the second consecutive time, is determined to win.

“When the sun is shining, you don’t need much leadership, but when there are clouds, you need leadership,” Tilikainen said, referring to the team’s difficult situation.

Foreign player Lincoln Williams, nicknamed Lincoln, who pulled out of the last game with a sore back, will also be absent.

“Lincoln’s condition is not good,” Tilikainen admitted, but he has faith in Lim Dong-hyuk to fill the void, calling him “the best apogee spiker in Korea.”

Still, it will be difficult for Jeong Ji-seok to play full-time after returning from a back injury.

“He’s been participating in training, but a real game is different from training,” Tilikainen said, adding, “We’ll have to think about how and how much to use him.” 슬롯게이밍
