Now Song Gyo-chang in Busan

“We won’t forget the love from Jeonju.”

On Nov. 19, the Armed Forces Athletic Corps’ Sangmu basketball team won 84-55 against Dongguk University in the men’s general category final of the 104th National Sports Games at the Mokpo Multipurpose Gymnasium in Mokpo, South Jeolla Province. It was the seventh consecutive gold medal for the team.

In May of last year, the team received a lot of attention. KBL MVPs Heo Hoon and Song Kyo-chang enlisted in the military at the same time. The two players, who competed for the scoring title in different jerseys in the league, wore the same uniform. Time has passed, with Heo set to be discharged from the military on Nov. 15 and Song returning to the KBL on Nov. 17 against Goyang Sono.

“I was able to meet really good teammates while I was in Commerce,” says Song. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot from the players who were good at basketball. I’m about to be discharged from the army and return to my team, and I hope that everyone is not injured when I get there and that I can adapt as soon as possible,” he said.

After a healthy military career, Song Kyo-chang was selected to the men’s basketball team for the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games. However, he suffered a knee injury in a practice game leading up to the Games. After taking a break from the KBL Cup and the National Championships, Song cheered on his teammates from the stands.

“The injury is unfortunate, but I think it’s unavoidable. I’m currently recovering by training with weights and light shooting,” he said.

In August, Song’s team, KCC, confirmed a move from Jeonju to Busan. Song began his professional career in Jeonju as a high school rookie in 2015, and has since grown to become the league MVP (2020-2021) with the love and support of Jeonju fans. Now, however, he will continue his professional career in Busan instead of Jeonju.

“I received a lot of love and support,” Song said. When I heard the news of my relocation, I felt a lot of emotions. I will never forget the love and support of Jeonju fans.”

Meanwhile, KCC, the defending KBL Cup champions, are considered a strong contender this year. The offseason free agent acquisition of Choi Jun-yong 메이저사이트 and the addition of Heo Woong and Lee Seung-hyun, along with the soon-to-be returning Song Gyo-chang, have been called a super team.

“We have so many good players, so I think we’ll be able to play fun basketball,” said Song Gyo-chang. I’m looking forward to it and want to win,” said Song.
