Jungang University’s energy wasn’t bad, but ‘silent three points’ was a disappointment

Lim’s silence was disappointing.

Chung-Ang University fell to KU 70-79 in the 2024 KUSF University Basketball U-League South Division regular season game at KU’s Glocal Campus Gymnasium on Nov. 21. The team finished in sixth place with a 6-4 record. They are half a game behind fourth-place Kyung Hee University-Sungkyunkwan University (both 6-3). They are one game behind third-place Konkuk University (7-3).

Chung-Ang University’s advantage is its thick player base. Everyone on the court does their job. With a large number of available players, Chung-Ang University was able to hold off even Korea University, 카지노 the strongest team in the university. They threatened the top tier.

However, Chungang’s rise to power would not be possible if the seniors were not able to hold the center. Forward Lim Dong-un is one of them.

Lim combines height and shooting. He’s highly regarded in the college league, having played in more than a hundred games. His stats (5.67 points, 4.22 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per game) don’t stand out, but he can put up big numbers at any given time.

Lim got off to a good start. On his first possession, Lim cracked the KU defense with a ball-less move and grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed jumper by Seo Ji-woo (200 cm, C). He then scored the first points of the game.

Lim didn’t hesitate to capitalize on the opportunity. He got the ball in the left corner and made a jumper. He showed a good shooting touch. At the same time, he also increased his defensive energy.

However, Chungang was unable to stop Freddie (203 cm, C). Chungang’s foul count also increased. This made it difficult for Jungang players, including Lim Dong-un, to actively play defense. Without defense, Chung-Ang fell behind 6-10. They had to call their first timeout with 4:35 left in the game.

However, Lim’s fouls quickly piled up. He picked up his second foul with 6:05 left in the game. The need to change the mood of the game only intensified. In foul trouble, Lim had to retreat to the bench with 2:50 left in the first quarter.

Lim was re-inserted at the start of the second quarter. He raised the energy level with offensive rebounds, perimeter defense, and screens. Lim’s energy level was transmitted to the younger players, and freshmen Do Hyun-woo (182 cm, G) and Ko Chan-yu (190 cm, G) scored back-to-back baskets. Chung-Ang closed the gap to KU, 17-26.

In addition, Lim Dong-un blocked a Freddie’s basket. It was a play that broke the spirits of KU and Freddie. At the same time, it was a morale-boosting play for Chung-Ang University.

Nevertheless, Chung-Ang started the third quarter with a score of 25-37. Chungang players, including Lim Dong-un, had to step up once again because Freddie kept giving up second-chance points and Baek Kyung (190 cm, G) hit a three-pointer on defense at the end of the second quarter.

Although Lim was unable to make an impact, Chung-Ang made it 49-54 with 2 minutes and 2 seconds left in the third quarter. This was due to the even performance of the guard lineup, which included Choi Hyung-woo (185 cm, G), Lee Kyung-min (183 cm, G), Won Gun (187 cm, G), and Do Hyun-woo. In addition, they drew the fourth foul of KU’s core Freddy with 15 seconds left in the third quarter.

However, Chung-Ang was down 54-65 just 1:13 into the fourth quarter. For that reason, Chung-Ang needed Lim’s shot. If a reliable shooter like Lim can hit a three, it can give Chungnam a momentum boost.

However, Lim was on the bench for most of the fourth quarter. Chung-Ang University threatened KU at 65-69 with 4:33 left in the game, but couldn’t get over the final hump. Lim had to watch his team lose from the bench. His energy level wasn’t bad, but his poor three-point shooting (0-of-3) left something to be desired.
