DB’s upward trend has become stronger, and KOGAS has not been able to fix the chronic problem.
Wonju DB, led by acting coach Kim Joo-seong, won 71-65 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Daegu Korea Gas Corporation held at Wonju Sports Complex on the 26th. DB ran 3 consecutive victories with the victory that day.
Acting coach Kim Joo-seong said, “In the beginning, Lee Dae-seong scored a lot. I think we played a difficult game because our prepared defense did not work well. Actually, the defense that came out in the second half should have come out in the first half, but I’m glad it came out even in the second half (laughs). I want to praise the players who worked hard,” he said, expressing his feeling of victory.
DB’s height fight, led by Kang Sang-jae, completely overwhelmed KOGAS. In the rebound fight, they overwhelmed the opponent with 42-29, and DB Sanseong, which led to Kang Sang-jae, Kim Jong-gyu, and Dewan Hernandez, scored 36 points. The opposing big man line, Jeong Hyo-geun, Lee Dae-heon, and Murphy Holloway, tied them with only 22 points.
Acting DB Kim Joo-seong said, “It is difficult to say that the defense was good because the opponent’s shot did not go well. However, the players worked hard and did their best until the end,” he praised the team. 스포츠토토
“Today (26th), the players’ bodies seemed to be heavy. I think it must have been difficult because I went through a forced march and practiced a lot of things again under the new system. Today’s game revealed a lot of things that need to be refined. I don’t have much time, but I plan to refine and supplement it whenever I can.”
On the other hand, KOGAS coach Yoo Do-hoon once again bowed his head to the chronic problem of the offense collapsing when the defense is not working. He even chased it with a one-point lead in the middle of the third quarter, but failed to challenge for a streak by slumping to 2-11 for about two minutes after that.
Coach Yoo Do-hoon said, “At the beginning of the game, the problem was that we allowed too many offensive rebounds. We couldn’t drag it into our flow. In the second half of the game, two turnovers occurred during the stamina arrangement of key players such as Lee Dae-sung and Lee Dae-heon. I don’t want to scold the backup players. It’s just my fault for not managing the game. I hope that the players who came off the bench will use their mistakes as experience and feel a lot through today’s game.”
