KEPCO won a complete set score of 3-0 at home against OK Financial Group in the men’s 2023-24 Dodram V League at Suwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 14th. He fell to the bottom of the league (7th) with 1 win and 6 losses in the season, including four consecutive losses before the game, but he created a rebound by hitting OK Financial Group, which had been doing well by tying for second in multiple wins (5 wins). KEPCO, which added three more points to mark six, dropped KB Insurance and rose to sixth place.

Korea Electric Power Corporation has a strong domestic player record. Middle blocker Shin Young-seok, who shines with the most blocks (1,163) in his career, guards the center of the court, while top outsider heaters Seo Jae-deok and Lim Sung-jin are in charge of side attacks.

However, early this season, KEPCO’s sluggish domestic side strikers continued, leading to only monotonous attacks. Rumors of the sale of the volleyball team, which flowed out last month, also shook the team.

In the match against OK Financial Group on the 14th, Tice, Seo Jae-deok, and Lim Sung-jin’s “triangle formation” showed an organic attack for the first time in a long time. Tice scored 17 points and Seo Jae-deok and Lim Sung-jin scored 13 points each.

Coach Kwon Young-min is encouraging the players.
Before the game, KEPCO coach Kwon Young-min drew attention by cutting his hair short. “I meant to reflect,” he said. “I’ve only been thinking about the team’s problems, but I’m determined to abandon my negative thoughts and focus on strengthening my strengths,” he said.

The request delivered by foreign player Tice also resonated with the team. “In the first round, everyone seemed to want me to solve it. However, in the match against OK Financial Group on the 14th, I felt like I was helping and pushing. “Even if I lost the game, I would have been satisfied with my teammates’ fighting spirit.”

Tice said, “V-League players are too stressed by the results of one or two games. “Let’s just think about the game in front of us and play coolly,” he said, flashing his eyes.

Lim Sung-jin, the “next ace,” acknowledged Tice’s words and said, “Honestly, it was right that I relied on Tice. Sometimes I just looked at him. “I gave up my miscellaneous thoughts and played confidently, and our team’s original appearance came out,” he said.

Captain Park Chul-woo, who mainly plays as a backup this season, drew his fighting spirit by emphasizing to his juniors ahead of the OK Financial Group match, “Let’s play with a mindset of winning unconditionally today.”
