‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-gyeong, 33, fell into’No. 6 swamp’. This is why Heungkuk Life, who was evaluated as’Uh Woo-heung’ (Hungkuk Life Insurance won anyway), was concentrated on the edge of the pro-volleyball 2020-2021 V-League women’s championship match (5 matches, 3 wins).
In case you don’t know, each team submits a lineup for each set, and each player plays the match by shifting positions 1-6 clockwise one by one according to the order of the lineup.
This is called’rotation’, and the players in positions 2-4 are called front and the rest are called rear players.
The second player must not touch a ball higher than the net between the net and the attack line. So, it’s common for a player to be unable to perform his offense properly when he is in the rear.
Therefore, it can be said that choosing a position where the best striker on the team can stay on the vanguard for as long as possible is the basic principle of the lineup.
This position is number 4. In fact, the players who started in position 4 in the women’s regular league match this season played 54.1% of the total rally at avant-garde. On the other hand, 54% of the players who started from position 1 were behind.
For this reason, it is common for foreign players to start at 4 and setters at 1 in the V-League. (If you look at the history of volleyball, this difference in probability has resulted in the birth of the main striker = light standing diagonally from the setter.)
When the setter is in front, there are only two attackers in front, but when in the back, there are three attackers in front, so you have more choices.
● Attack efficiency 0.082
Then, to put it coldly, what kind of lineup will Heungkuk Life Insurance have in this championship match with Bruna (22, Brazil), who has less offensive power than Kim Yeon-kyung?
Interestingly (?) Heungkuk Life Insurance coach Park Mi-hee started the match with Kim Mi-yeon (28) placed in the fourth position in both of the championship matches. Instead, Bruna started the match at position 3. Kim Yeon-kyung started from position 6 in both matches.
So, I came out with a’anomalous lineup’ that puts Kim Mi-yeon, the original left resource, in the right position, and Bruna, the original right resource, in the left position.
It would have been nice if this lineup had been successful, but the result was not.
The biggest problem is that Kim Yeon-kyung’s stay in the rear (54.3%) was longer than the front (45.7%). So, in this championship, Kim Yeon-kyung had to spend as long as the setter placed in the 1st position in order to keep it in the rear on purpose.
It wasn’t like this at the time of the playoffs. During the three playoffs, Yeon-kyung Kim played 50.1% from the front and 49.9% from the rear of the total rally. It was actually half and half.
However, during the championship, I had a long time, especially in the 6th position. Theoretically calculated, Kim Yeon-kyung had to play 16.5% of the total rally in the 6th place during this champ match. The actual result was 23.1%.
The reason why Kim Yeon-kyung has been stuck in position 6 for so long is simple. When Kim Yeon-kyung is in the 6th position, Heungkuk Life’s avant-garde will include Kim Mi-yeon-Bruna-Lee Joo-ah (21).
The three players made a total of 49 attacks, reaching only 13 successes (26.5%). However, out of the remaining 36 times, 5 times were blocked by the opponent, and 4 times were ended in attack. So, if you calculate the attack efficiency, 0.082 is all.
● Cha Sanghyun’s Trap
The biggest reason Heungkuk Life has been so sluggish here is that GS Caltex coach Sang-Hyun Cha put a trap here.
In this rotation order, GS Caltex mainly served by Kang So-hui (24). Kang So-hui is a’strong server’ that lowers the opposing team’s serve-receive efficiency to 27.1% (3rd place) during the regular season.
It doesn’t end here. So-Hwi Kang (27)-Lutz (27)-Civilization (26) will be in the front of GS Caltex while serving.
In this way, first, you can paint the blocking wall, which is said to have high lutz (206 cm) and civilization (189 cm). In addition, when the ball crosses the GS Caltex side and takes a chance to counterattack, you can use So-young Lee (0.313) and Rutz (0.303), who ranked first in the team’s attack efficiency.
If GS Caltex scores, it can start the rally again from the serve of So-Hwi Kang and aim for consecutive goals. In fact, GS Caltex scored 33 points (22.0%) out of the 150 points scored in the two championship matches. This is where GS Caltex scored the most.
In this way, the longer the GS Caltex attack is, the longer Kim Yeon-kyung is tied to the 6th position.
● Attack share 68.4%, Serve receive share 36.7%
GS Caltex’s harassment (?) does not end even when Kim Yeon-kyung rises to the avant-garde.
Kim Yeon-kyung was responsible for 18.9% (14 out of 74) of the total sub-receives of Heungkuk Life Insurance. At potential, this percentage nearly doubles to 36.7% (22 out of 60). This is because the GS Caltex players made a’purpose blow’ towards Kim Yeon-kyung.
Kim Yeon-kyung recorded 45.5% sub-receive efficiency at the front, showing no interest in the target hitter. GS Caltex Libero Handa Hye (26) recorded 45.6% sub receive efficiency in the regular season.
The problem is that you can’t increase your score if you serve only well. Of the 22 GS Caltex subs Kim Yeon-kyung received, 16 (72.2%) led to Kim Yeon-kyung’s attack attempt. Including these 16, Yeon-kyung Kim was responsible for 54 (68.4%) of 79 attack attempts across the team.
And it left an attack efficiency of 0.352. Among the players who recorded more than 10% of the attack market share in the regular league game, only one player, Hyo-jin Yang (32, Hyundai E&C Center), who recorded 0.366 was more effective than this.
So Kim Yeon-kyung recorded a libero-class sub-receive efficiency at the vanguard during the two matches against the champs, leaving a center-class attack efficiency. It also recorded more than 100%’attack share + serve receive share’.
But what can I do. Volleyball is not a game where only one player can win in avant-garde.
Oh, Kim Yeon-kyung made 19 diggs by combining the two matches against the Champ. Of course, it is the most record in Heungkuk Life Insurance.
● “Volleyball Empress” How are you?
Upon returning to the V-League stage, Kim Yeon-kyung, who signed a one-year contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance, sent a message that he could leave Korea again after the season ended ahead of the postseason.
Heungkuk Life Insurance has kneeled 0-3 with GS Caltex in both the first and second games held at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul. If the third game, which is held at Incheon Gyeyang Gymnasium, the main stadium of the 30th, is handed over, this season for the women’s division will be over.
Volleyball is a team sport, and even if Kim Yeon-kyung shouts’Let’s go to the end’, if his teammates don’t help, he has to stop walking like this. Will the teammates be able to rescue Kim Yeon-kyung from swamp #6?
