Pyo Seung-joo (31) of IBK Industrial Bank of Korea in women’s professional volleyball 스포츠토토 graduated from Suwon Hanil Computer Girls’ High School (currently Hanbom High School) and was selected as the first overall pick in the 2010-2011 rookie draft. In the year Pyo Seung-joo entered the pro, IBK Industrial Bank was founded, and Busan Namseong Girls’ High School, Seoul Jungang Girls’ High School, and Jinju Sunseon Girls’ High School players were first nominated, and Pyo Seung-ju, who was the largest among the remaining school players, wore the road construction uniform as the first overall. what has been
One of the strengths of Pyo Seung-ju, who has been known for his strong offensive ability since high school, is his versatility as he can switch between an apositive spiker, an outside heater, and a middle blocker. For this reason, coaches who use the Pyo Seung-ju changed the position of the Pyo Seung-ju whenever they were in a hurry. As a result, Pyo Seung-joo did not have a firm position even in his early professional days, and his growth was somewhat delayed as he went back and forth between middle blocker and apogeetic spiker.
Now, in his 13th year as a pro, Pyo Seung-ju has perfectly settled into the outside heater position. The height of 182cm was disappointing when he was a middle blocker, but it is a pretty big advantage for an outside heater. In the early days of his career, he showed some weakness in receiving, but now receiving and dig are no longer his weaknesses. With the addition of defensive power to the offensive power that stood out since his rookie days, he has now grown into a decent outside hitter.
Looking at his all-season record alone, he ranks in the top three among women’s professional volleyball outside hitters. 403 points ranked 8th overall. If it is limited to domestic players, it is third after Heungkuk Life’s Kim Yeon-kyung (530 points) and Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s Yang Hyo-jin (415 points). Overall attack rating was 35.00%, 9th overall. In addition, defense ([ (receive accuracy – receive failure) + dig success ] / number of sets) is also ranked 6th with 6.701 per set. It is not an exaggeration to say that the career high season since her debut is all seasons.
In the match against GS Caltex held at the Hwaseong Gymnasium on the 16th, Pyo Seung-joo’s true value as an outside heater was revealed. On this day, Pyo Seung-ju scored 17 points with a high-sensitivity attack success rate of 66.67%, even though he was only responsible for 17.39% of the team’s attacks. Receive also received 25, the most in the team, and delivered 10 over the setter’s head, and Digg also tried 21 and succeeded in 16. Thanks to the great performance of Pyo Seung-ju, IBK Industrial Bank won 3-1 (25-20 14-25 25-19 25-14).
After winning 3-1 against Heungkuk Life Insurance on the 11th, IBK Industrial Bank, which had two consecutive wins, accumulated 3 points and narrowed the gap with 5th place GS Caltex (39 points, 13 wins and 16 losses) with 37 points (12 wins and 17 losses). He continued to hope for spring volleyball. 3rd place Highway Corporation is ahead of 10 points with 47 points (16 wins, 12 losses), so there is a long way to go for IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, but the victory on this day was valuable in that it continued its upward trend by defeating GS Caltex, a competitor in the ranking fight.
Pyo Seung-ju, who entered the interview room as a distinguished player after the game, said, “I won because my fellow players were so good. It’s good to win today, but I feel regretful about how good it would be if this victory had been at the beginning of the season.”
Regarding the secret to continuing a good performance this season, Pyo Seung-ju said, “I had a good mood at the end of last season, so I wanted to maintain that form from the beginning of this season. I had a strong desire to do well, but the team was still in 6th place. We still have a long way to go because team performance comes first rather than individual performance.”
IBK Industrial Bank is in a situation where it can win only when Pyo Seung-ju plays an active role throughout the air and defense due to the composition of the players. Even Pyo Seung-ju, who is now in her 30s, is not without physical burdens. Pyo Seung-ju said, “It is physically difficult. Still, it’s a part that I have to do, so I think I’m getting better and better. I am proud to see myself enduring, and I will do it until the end of the season.” “I’m in my 13th year as a pro, but my mentality is still shaken by a single mistake. However, the next play will be different depending on how you overcome it and how you prepare for the next one. If you can’t overcome it, it has no choice but to end like that. I will endure it,” he added.
