Ivone Montaño (registered name Montaño, Colombia), who served as a substitute for Hyundai E&C in place of the injured Yasmin Bedart (registered name Yasmin, USA), was omitted from the 23-24 season tryouts.

On the 1st, a club official who spoke to the magazine said, “Montaño quietly returned home after the season, expressing his intention to return.” “he said. 

Montaño’s name is missing from the 23-24 KOVO Foreign Draft list. 

Among the outsiders who were active in the 22-23 season, Santana (IBK Industrial Bank of Korea), Yelena (Heungkuk Life Insurance), Catbell (Korea Expressway Corporation), and Moma (GS Caltex) applied, and Yasmin (Hyundai E&C), who dropped out due to an injury, was on the list. there is. 

Yasmin, who was an existing foreigner, joined Hyundai Engineering & Construction as the second pick in the 2021-22 season draft. Afterwards, he exploded 43 points from the first game of his V-League debut, and has been active ever since, serving as a big contributor to Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s first place in the regular league. His performance in the last 21-22 season was 4th overall with a cumulative score of 674 points, 1st in the back attack success rate of 49.41%, and 2nd place in the attack success rate of 42.81%.

Even at the beginning of the 22-23 season, Hyundai Engineering & Construction ran a winning streak thanks to Yasmin’s scoring firepower. However, Yasmin withdrew from the court last December due to a herniated disc.

When Yasmin’s rehabilitation status and return became unclear, Hyundai E&C, which endured the remaining games with Hwang Yeon-ju, recruited Montaño as a substitute at the end of the season. Montaño was from Muratpasa in the 2nd division of Turkey and was considered a resource capable of playing multiple positions. He also raised expectations with his performance, such as winning the top scorer in the Swiss League in the 20-21 and 21-22 seasons.

Montaño, who was put in hastily, was concerned about his unstable breathing with his teammates in the early stages, but soon showed that he melted well into the league. But he couldn’t prevent a pre-playoff loss against Road Corporation. 

Montaño has played in a total of 12 games (10 regular league games and 2 playoff games) this season. He accumulated 180 points in the regular season and 24 points in the playoffs. His attack success rate averaged 38.54% in the regular league, and his blocking rate was 0.46 per set.  토토사이트

He showed sluggishness in defense and rarely showed decisiveness in open attack, so he could not make an impressive performance. It is understood that he chose to return home quietly when he did not achieve satisfactory league results. 

An official from the club said, “Montaño is not withdrawing after applying, but can apply for tryouts next season without penalty.” said briefly. 

Meanwhile, the foreign draft will be held face-to-face for the first time in four years due to the easing of the spread of Corona 19. The place is Turkey, Istanbul. The men’s division will be held from May 6-8, and the women’s division will be held from 11-13 May.
