Korea-Japan men’s and women’s colleges clash at Yonsei University after 4 years

The male and female university representatives from Korea and Japan will face off again after 4 years since 2019. The men’s university team challenges to win three consecutive championships following 2018 and 2019.

The Korea-Japan University Basketball Tournament, which was called a hundred times over, will be held at the Yonsei University Gymnasium for three days from the 19th to the 21st.

This competition, which started in 1978, has been held alternately in Korea in even-numbered years and in Japan in odd-numbered years since 1986 to compete against each other.

After being suspended due to Corona 19 for three years after the 2019 tournament in Japan, it will resume in Korea this year despite an odd number of dismissals. The venue is Yonsei University.

The men’s university team suffered a shock defeat in Japan in 2017, and then won 2 wins and 1 loss in 2018 and 2019. If they win this time, they will enjoy the glory of winning three consecutive tournaments.

From 2017 to 2019, the women’s university division suffered three consecutive defeats in three competitions. From 2009 to 2016, no women’s university games were held.스포츠토토

The last time the women’s college team won against Japan was in the first game in 2008 (82-72), and the last time they beat Japan and won the championship was in 2006 (2 wins and 1 loss).

The event is free to enter and will be broadcast on Naver Sports.
