Two teams on a losing streak face off.
Jeonju KCC meets Daegu Korea Gas Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season game held at Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 24th.
KCC attracted a lot of attention this off-season by recruiting Heo Woong (185cm, G) and Lee Seung-hyun (197cm, F). However, at the beginning of the season, players showed less than expected due to residual injuries and breathing problems. They bounced back in round 3 and finished the first half with a 16-15 record by winning their last two games of the first half.
However, in the first game of the second half, they met Ulsan Hyundai Mobis and lost by 2 points. In the second game, against Changwon LG, they suffered a crushing defeat by 19 points. A situation that requires a reversal of the atmosphere at home.
When asked why KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin’s performance declined in the second half, he said, “I couldn’t exercise much during the All-Star break. All indicators are down. The reason seems to be a lack of training. It is the director’s responsibility.”
He continued, “There were four All-Star players. Injured players were also unable to exercise. I rested a lot, but I didn’t practice much. I played well before the break, but not now.”헤라카지노
KCC is currently in 6th place. However, the difference between the game and the other low-ranking teams is not large. That’s why coach Jeon said, “Every game is important, but today’s game is more important. We lost in a row recently, and if we lose today’s game, the fight for the semifinals will be even more difficult. I’m worried because I haven’t played well recently.”
Meanwhile, Korea Gas Corporation is also having a difficult season. Off-season Lee Dae-seong (191cm, G) was traded and a lot of expectations were raised by reinforcing players, but he showed a lower-than-expected appearance. In the second round, he managed to bounce back with strong attack power, but there were many days when he lost again. The first half ended with 12 wins and 17 losses.
They did not win the first game of the second half and lost the second game, and are recording their third consecutive loss of the season at the same time as the second half.
Korea Gas Corporation coach Yoo Do-hoon, whom we met before the game, started the interview by saying, “I am worried about having to break a losing streak every day.”
“After the home game, we start 5 away matches. The content of the game goes well in the beginning, but the scoring and decision-making power is poor in the match,” he diagnosed the team.
And “Until now, I have not been pushed back in the fight against foreigners. But domestic players need to do more. You have to be confident in your scoring chances. I think winning should give players confidence. In particular, it is important that (Lee) Daesung has a high scoring rate. With the help of the rest of the players, Daeseong can score more easily. On the other hand, if you push too much toward Daesung, the opponent will easily defend it,” emphasizing the confidence of the players.
