The 30-team Southern High Weekend League kicks off on the 15th!

Which team will rise to the top of the 2024 Korean Basketball Weekend League, the first tournament of the second half of the season?

The 2024 Korea Middle and High School Basketball Weekend League, organized and hosted by the Korea Middle and High School Basketball Federation (Chairman Park So-heum), will kick off its epic journey on May 15th. Starting with a match between Gyeongbok High School and Yongsan High School, two eternal rivals, the competition will continue for 10 weeks. The Weekend League is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Korea Sports Promotion Organization, 카지노사이트킴 and the Korea Basketball Association.

A total of 97 teams participated in the 2024 Korea Basketball Weekend League, with 30 schools competing in the boys’ high school division.

Gyeongbokgo Gymnasium will host the Seoul, Gyeongin, and Gangwon regions’ Groups A and B. Group A includes Gyeongbok Go, Jemulpo Go, Baejae Go, Yongsan Go, and Anyang Go.

It’s a group without a single team. Gyeongbok Go and Yongsan Go are the two teams that stand out. Gyeongbokgo is a powerhouse that has already won two titles this season, including recently winning the 2024 Federation Championship.

Yongsango has also shown no signs of backing down. Eddie Daniel, who was sidelined with an injury, quickly rejoined the team and put in a stellar performance, winning the Seoul Mayor’s Cup in May.

This season, Yongsan Go has yet to win a title. It will be interesting to see if the 2023 Weekend League Wangjoong Wangjeong champions can restore their reputation and win their second consecutive Weekend League title.

Group B features five teams: Yangjeonggo, Hwamungo, Inheongo, Naksaenggo, and Myungji. Yangjeonggo, which is led by Koo Seung-chae, is showing off its solid power, while Hwimungo, which is the runner-up of the Seoul Mayor’s Cup, Inheunggo, Naksaenggo, and Myungji have all stepped up their game.

In Group C of the Seoul-Gyeongin-Gangwon region, Gwangshin Broadcasting Yego, Gangwon Sadaebugo, Songdo Go, Samil Go, and Hongdae Bugo meet at Gwangshin Yego.

Although SongdoGo will be without Bang Sung-in due to a hand injury, the duo of Lee Chan-young and Bang Sung-won will be back. With Songdo Go boasting a fierce firepower in every match and Hongdae Bugo, the defending champions, expected to be strong, it will be interesting to see which team will emerge as the dark horse.

Cheongju Shinshungo will face Cheongju Shinshungo, Gyesung Go, Cheonan Ssangyong Go, Sangsan Electronics Go, and Chungju in Group D of the Central Region. It will be interesting to see if Gyeongsungo, which has defended its pride as a non-metropolitan team in every tournament, will be able to stand on top this time.

Gyeongsungo suffered bitter losses in the final of the Spring Federation Championships, the semifinals of the Association Championships, and the final of the Federation Championships, all of which were lost to Gyeongbok Go.

In Group E of the Daejeon-Honam region, Jeonju, Yeosu Hwa Yang Go, Daejeon Go, Gunsan Go, and Gwangju Go will play in Jeonju. Finally, Group F in the Gyeongsang region includes Dong-A, Masan, Gimhae, Gimhae Gaya, Busan Jungang, and Murong, who will face off in Dong-A.

The top three teams in each group will qualify for the Weekend League Wangjoong Wangjeon (August 5-8) in Yanggu. In the four-team group, the second-place finisher will also head to Yanggu.
