Winter Cup 2020 Featured School: Rakunan (Kyoto) "High concentration and performance are weapons

Since the formation of this year’s team, Rakunan High School lost to rival Higashiyama High School in the same prefecture as the Kyoto Prefecture rookie match and Kinki High School rookie match in a 100-point game, but finally won the Winter Cup Kyoto Prefectural Qualifying. As a representative of Kyoto Prefecture, he will advance to the best winter match in Japan.

On November 1st, the final round of the Kyoto Preliminary Final League, Rakunan demonstrated everything he had prepared for this match. If the ball hits the center’s Mutombo Jean-Pierre (3rd year), the scoring source of Higashiyama, Kenny Asano (3rd year) of the matchup will try not to take a superior position, and the players around him will also be on foot. Succeeded in blocking Pierre’s movement with double team and triple team and keeping it to 14 points. The foot that each player responded to by rotation to the pass from Pierre to the shooting team at the outside angle did not decline until the end.

And after all, it was the shoot that didn’t fall to the end. In addition to all five starting pitchers scoring double digits, they all sank a three-point shot. In particular, it can be said that the shot decided by Asano and Yusuke Yamagishi (2nd year) on the inside when Pierre was pulled out caused great damage to Higashiyama.

After the match, Rakunan’s Junya Ogawa (3rd year), who responded to the interview, said, “Because I was always separated by 3 quarters, I entered the second half with caution. Even if it was about to collapse, Captain Nishimura (Keitaro / 3rd year) ) Pulled everyone, “he said with a smile.

Coach Yujida said, “Nice game! I did my best. Each of them fulfilled their responsibilities as a player. There was a place where it seemed to collapse at the end of the first half, but in the second half it was rebuilt and everyone fought.”, Praised the player for letting go.

The center of the offense is Ogawa, who scored 25 points, the most for both teams, in the Kyoto Preliminary Final League match against Higashiyama. Armed with speedy driving and a strong 3-point shot. In addition, despite being 190 cm tall, he is an all-round player who can easily carry the ball just by guarding until junior high school.

In addition, at the offense, Nishimura, the command tower, controls the traditional pass and run. The style of scoring points from anywhere is alive and well, and it can be said that the center team can also aim for a shot from the outside angle.

In addition, keep an eye on the offense and defense performance shown in the Higashiyama match. Analyze your opponents and be prepared accordingly. It can be said that the concentration and execution ability to keep doing it to the end was acquired by fighting Higashiyama.

Coach da raised the issue for the actual performance, saying, “Because it will be a series of battles, we need to increase the player base. We must take appropriate measures even in the battle with teams with international students.” If the performance shown in this Kyoto prefectural qualifying can be demonstrated at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, it should not be a dream to advance to the top and conquer the whole country.
