‘2nd quarter one-man show’ Yang Jae-min, 14 points against Akita… wins Sendai Tohoku Cup

Yang Jae-min played well against Akita and led Sendai to victory in the Tohoku Cup.

Sendai 89ERS won 89-76 against Akita Northern Happiness in the 2023 Tohoku Cup Final held at Horaiya Koriyama General Gymnasium on the 18th. They defeated Yamagata Wyverns on the 16th and Fukushima Firebones on the 17th, and then defeated Akita to win the Tohoku Cup.

The biggest contributor to the victory is Korea’s Jaemin Yang. Jaemin Yang played 16 minutes and 35 seconds, scoring 14 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal. He attempted three 3-point shots and succeeded in two, and five of his seven field goals hit the rim. Yamagata and Fukushima showed a play that seemed to have completely regained the sense of shooting that was lost in the game.

Yang Jae-min, who did not show much presence in the first quarter, made the second quarter his own stage. He scored his first point with a 3-pointer from the wing, and immediately followed up with another outside shot from the same position. Afterwards, he assisted a teammate’s 3-point shot with an accurate pass.메이저놀이터
