Kim Byeong-ho (Hana Card) and Seo Hyun-min (Welcome Savings Bank), ‘former PBA champions,’ have struggled to continue to play an active part in the first part of the next season. In particular, Eom Sang-pil (Blue One Resort) dramatically decided to stay on the last day of Q School.

PBA concluded the ‘2023 PBA Q-School’ and ‘2023 LPBA Tryout’ held at the PBC Carom Club in Ilsan, Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do for a week from the 7th to the 13th.

As a result, most of the strong players, such as Kim Byeong-ho, Eom Sang-pil, Han Ji-seung (Welcome Savings Bank) and Eom Sang-pil (Blue One Resort), who were demoted from the 1st division tour last season, have decided to remain on the 1st division tour. A total of 23 people, including ‘Dream Tour’ Park Jung-min and Hwang Hyung-beom, ‘Challenge Tour’ Lee Jae-hong and Koo Ja-bok, passed the Q School and qualified for the first part of the next season.

‘PBA Q School’ is the final gateway to qualifying for the first division tour ahead of the new season. This is the last chance for players who were demoted in the first part of the previous season to remain in the first part. This Q School was divided into two rounds. In the first round, Dream and Challenge players competed, and in the second round, those who passed the first round and the relegated players from the first division competed for three days토토사이트.

As soon as the second round started, Han Ji-seung and Kim Byung-ho quickly confirmed their stay on the first part tour and got out of the crisis. Han Ji-seung passed the Q School with an average of 2.667, including a high run of 20 points in a match with Hwang Ji-won, the ‘work glove of fear’. In addition, 10 people, including Lim Tae-soo and Hwang Hyung-beom, confirmed their retention and promotion to the first division on the first day of the second round of Q School.

Seo Hyun-min, who lost 32-40 to Hwang Ji-won on the first day, defeated Ma Won-hee, Kim Dong-young, and Kwon Ik-joong in turn on the second day to confirm his stay in the first division. 9 people, including Seo Hyun-min, Jeong Jae-kwon, Gu Min-soo, and Park Ki-ho, confirmed their promotion to the first division on the second day.

Eom Sang-pil, who had high hopes for going to Q School with Kim Byeong-ho and Seo Hyun-min, unfortunately lost 38-40 to Kim Byung-ho in the last game to remain in the first part on the first day, and on the second day, he was caught by Choi Jeong-ha 38-40 and bowed his head.

However, on the last 3rd day, when only 4 players were selected, he defeated Noh Jong-hyeon, Choi Jeong-ha, and Choi Dong-seon in turn and dramatically succeeded in remaining in the 1st division. Along with Eom Sang-pil, Koo Ja-bok, Lee Seung-jin, and Kim Min-gun were also listed on the first division retention and promotion list on the last day.

Twenty-three students who passed the Q School this time secured the right to register for the first division tour for the next season. Those who passed the LPBA tryout, which was held on the 10th, will be comprehensively evaluated by the PBA Game Management Committee and announced the results and content of the game.

After completing Q School, which signals the start of the season, PBA begins preparations for the season in earnest with the goal of opening in early and mid-June. On the 23rd, the ‘2023 PBA Team League Draft’ event will be held at the Press Center in Jung-gu, Seoul to select players who will be active in the PBA Team League in the 2023-24 season.
