“I enjoy what I do. When you truly enjoy what you do, then the rest comes naturally,” said Yoo, Hyun-joon, a freshman basketball player who plays on the Hanyang University(HYU) team. Yoo’s arrival in the college basketball league has had spectators in utter awe of 

his talent and aggressive guard skills. Many experts believe that he has the potential to become a pro basketball player one day. Yoo, on the other hand, is just grateful that he has a chance to play the sport that he has always loved.
 
“I started playing basketball when I was in elementary school. To be more precise, when I was in the 4th grade I had an opportunity to play basketball in a game between different classes. The basketball coach in my school saw me play and told me that he saw potential. I have continued to play basketball ever since.” Basketball has been Yoo’s outlet throughout his life. He played basketball even after he advanced into middle and high school. He graduated from Jemulpo High School, which is reknowned for its basketball team. In fact, there are many basketball players that play in the Korean College Basketball League today that graduated from that school. “I still keep in touch with the players that I met during my high school years, especially Byeon Jun-hyeong who currently plays as a guard for Donguk University.”
 
This is Yoo’s first season playing in the College Basketball League. When asked if there was anything different about playing in the College League he said, “No. To be honest, not much has changed from when I was in middle school and high school. I was a basketball player who constantly devoted his time to play basketball back then, and I am still that person today.”
 
Despite the fact that it is only his first season on the team, Yoo shocked the audience with his amazing skills. Many believe that he has the skills to continue with HYU’s unique basketball legacy known as Track Basketball. It is called Track Basketball because HYU players are known to run a lot throughout entire games, and to play in a very aggressive manner. “I try my best to adapt to each game but I still have a lot to learn.”
 
Basketball seems like an inseparable part of Yoo’s life. “Basketball has not only taught me how to make good decisions, but also how to situate myself in a team and become an well around team player.”
