Ken Takeda General Manager Comments

Hello everyone. I’m Ken Takeda, General Manager of Yokohama B-Corsairs. He is very grateful to be on this team again next season. We will do our best to support the players and staff in the new season as well. Thank you for your cooperation.

Once again, we would like to thank you for your continued support and support during the 2021-22 season. There were many parts where I felt that the results up to the 2020-21 season were steadily accumulated, but it was also a season that made me keenly aware that the entire team must continue to grow. In particular, I realized that the team has not yet possessed “toughness” and “stickiness to results.” It may be replaced by the word “toughness”.

Looking back on the numbers, for example, “the low win rate of games with behind at the end of the first half (5 wins, 30 losses, .014)” and “the number of defeat games (5 points difference) by a small margin (small score difference)” The issue appears in places such as “8 games defeated within”). In addition, the numbers such as “Average score per game (76.5 / 20th in the league)”, “Success rate of free throws (67% / 22nd in the league)” and “Number of rebounds (18th in the league)” were also the lowest results in the league. It is not possible to express everything with these numbers alone, but by accumulating improvements in each number, not only will you get the “toughness” and fouls that will bite you even if you are inferior and turn the game over at the end. We believe that we will create a “stickiness to the results” that will surely connect the free throw opportunities obtained from fouls to points, and will lead to victory.

Team formation for the 2022-23 season has been carried out with “toughness” and “focus on results” in mind. We will continue to grow by repeating trial and error so that what we have accumulated up to this season can be tougher and more efficiently linked to victory.

First of all, regarding players, we have signed renewal contracts with many players, but by further elaborating the results they have accumulated so far in better communication, we have grown into a team that can win “toughness” and “results”. I am looking forward to going.

Patrik Auda, Masaaki Morikawa, Kenta Morii, and Kouya Sudo, who will be in the third season, will be given leadership as the backbone of the team.
Always aggressive energy for young players Takeki Ohba, Kai King, and Yuki Kawamura.
For veteran Edward Morris, he will use his many years of experience to produce results.
I hope they will show you each.
In addition, new member Raita Akaho has gained a lot of experience in the top team by further strengthening her blessed body after transferring to Chiba Jets. Believing in himself that he could still grow, he chose Yokohama B-Corsairs. I feel that his body and aspirations are full of “toughness”. I also expect him to play a major role in defending foreign players in guard / forward positions.
For new foreign players, we are preparing positive and energetic players that fit the concept of next season. Please wait a little longer until the announcement.

Next, regarding the team staff, Mr. Hayato Aoki will continue to lead as the head coach. We hope that we will find the optimal solution while making the best use of the characteristics of each player, and add “toughness” to the team to “produce results”. The results are not immediate, and I believe that the best shortcut is to steadily accumulate the right things every day. For that reason, we have also signed renewal contracts with many team staff. I believe that each staff member will devote himself to the players and teams every day, centered on Aoki Head Coach and Jaretic Assistant Coach invited from Alvark Tokyo as a new member.

New assistant coach Igoa Jaretic knows the rigors of the top level, including his experience winning the B League. It is highly expected that his presence will not only support head coach Aoki, but also deepen the confidence of young players and foreign players and raise the standard of the entire team. In addition, regardless of appearance (I’m sorry Jare), the human nature that is very kind and caring is also attractive.

In addition, Ken Yoneda, who has been active in the rugby world for many years, will join the head athletic trainer. I think his experience in tough competitions will be a big help in basketball, and I was very impressed with his determination that he of my generation will try new competitions. .. In addition, I expect that the experience of seeing college players for 12 years will be a great asset for both Beecol, who emphasizes training, and the top team, which has many young players.

Although some players have not been notified yet, we are looking forward to seeing the further grown Yokohama B-Corsairs to everyone in the 2022-23 season with the above players and team staff. We will work together as a team to grasp the goal of participating in the championship more clearly, fight “toughly”, and show the “results”.

Last but not least, Captain Shusuke Ikuhara and Reginald Buckner, who have contributed to the team for many years, and Leyton Hammonds, who joined this season and brought momentum and a new breeze to the team, Ko Masaya Maki, Ryusei Abe, Tokio Tsuchiya, and Ryoichi Nishitani, an assistant coach and Tomoya Yamaguchi athletic trainer, who have earned a great deal of trust from the players, will be leaving the team. We sincerely thank them for their dedication to the team and wish them all the best in the future.

We look forward to your continued support and support for the Yokohama B-Corsairs in the 2022-23 season.
