Ryohei took a break after injuring his right hamstring (the muscle behind the thigh) in the OK Financial Group match on the 6th of last month.
He ranks first in defense this season (average of 5.182 per set), second in receiving efficiency (50.26%),
and second in digs (2.701 per set).
Although he was a sudden departure from the core of the defense,
KEPCO won all three remaining games of the fourth round and entered a pleasant All-Star break.
And ahead of the 5th and 6th rounds, where fierce ranking competition is expected, the reliable Ryohei has returned.
Korea Electric Power Corporation (5th place in the league) (37 points, 13 wins, 11 losses)
is only 2 points behind 4th place OK Financial Group and 3 points behind 3rd place Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance.
Coach Kwon Young-min set a goal of 5 wins and 1 loss in the 5th round and said, “We will see the match in the 5th round.”
“I hope the players will keep this in mind,” he said.
During the two-week break, “I rested for about three days and then trained focusing on physical strength.
“Afterwards, we practiced with a focus on blocking and tactics.”
Coach Hu In-jeong of KB Insurance (17 points, 4 wins, 20 losses), which is ranked last in the league,
believed that it is now realistically difficult to compete for rankings.
Coach Hu suggested 5 wins as the target number of wins for the remainder of the season, saying,
“We will try to give the rookie players as many opportunities as possible in the remaining 12 games.”
