2023 is KU’s year.

KU defeated Yonsei 60-57 in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League Championship Game on Thursday at KU’s Hwajung Gymnasium. It was KU’s fourth overall championship and second consecutive overall title, following the 2014, 2015, and 2022 titles.

In this season’s regular season, KU repeated last season’s title with a 13-1 record. The team was missing Lee Doo-won (KT), Kim Tae-wan (Hyundai Mobis), and Yeo Jun-hyung (KCC) from last season’s championship squad, but the team was still strong. They were the overwhelming favorite to win the title after last season.

KU went on a winning streak. From the opening game to the game against KU on June 15, the team was on a high, winning 13 straight games. The team seemed to be on a winning streak, but suffered a shocking loss on July 4. They lost by one point (67-68) to Sangmyung University, who had only won two games in the regular season. Despite the loss, KU finished the regular season with a 13-1 record.

KU’s loss came just one day after its victory. In July, KU won the MBC Varsity in Sangju, Korea, and defeated fierce rival Yonsei University 69-58 in the finals. It was the team’s 13th championship trophy.

KU’s momentum continued in the playoffs. They defeated Kyung Hee University in the quarterfinals and Dankook University in the semifinals. Just before the quarterfinals, the team won a close game against Yonsei in Goyang Gymnasium.바카라사이트

In the championship game against Yonsei, the last College League game of 2023, KU won 60-57 on a three-pointer by Moon Yoo-hyun off a pass from Park Mubin with three seconds left in regulation. Despite the loss, KU’s 2023 season has been one to forget.

Since the inception of the College League in 2010, KU has won back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015, and another two consecutive titles last season. Can Korea University continue its resurgence?
