Manager Kim Sang-shik emphasized defense, and manager Jeon Chang-jin emphasized the first quarter.
Anyang KGC and Jeonju KCC will meet in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 15th.
KGC is having a good season this season. Coach Kim Seung-gi, who was the commanding tower for this off-season team, left and Jeon Seong-hyeon (188cm, F) also left, but they are cruising without being shaken by Kim Sang-shik’s system. The season record is 15 wins and 5 losses, with a gap of 3 games from the 2nd place. In particular, from the beginning of the season until now, it has maintained its first place.
However, in the last 5 matches, it has been relatively disappointing. During the 6th consecutive win, he met Daegu Korea Gas Corporation and lost, failing to challenge for 7th consecutive win. Afterwards, he won against Seoul Samsung, but again met and lost to Korea Gas Corporation. If they lose the match today, it will be their second consecutive loss of the season.
KGC coach Kim Sang-sik, whom we met before the game, said, “KCC is on the rise these days. So I will be more careful and do my best.”
Then, when asked about the rise of KCC, coach Kim said, “KCC seems to have all the outside shooting, outside, defense, and structure. In the beginning, he was also considered as a candidate for the championship. This is a very good team. The key today is defense. Our team has always had to work well in defense to work well in offense. So I will focus on defense.”
And “Especially, when the opponent Jefferson comes out, it gets faster. Heo Woong is on the rise these days. So I prepared both parts,” he said, keeping Heo Woong and Ronde Hollis Jefferson (198cm, F) in check.
Coach Kim has the most common words in interviews before the game. It means ‘prepared the same’. And he said that to this day too. Director Kim said, “I prepared as usual. The lineup and matchup are the same. Depending on the situation, changes will be given.”
Meanwhile, KCC raised a lot of expectations by recruiting Heo Woong (185cm, G) and Lee Seung-hyun (197cm, F) this off-season. However, the reality was less than expected. They recorded 3 wins and 6 losses in the first round and 4 wins and 5 losses in the second round.
The positive fact is that they have recorded 3 wins and 1 loss in their last 4 matches. In particular, he succeeded in winning the first three games in a row and raised the atmosphere. Although they lost to Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in the last game, they managed to rebound to some extent. If you beat KGC, the league’s top team, the mood will rise. 메이저놀이터
KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin, whom we met before the game, said, “The most important thing is that the team not lose in a row. The players are good at defense, but the tough parts are lacking. Team fouls are not used properly. I prepared something like that,” he began the interview.
Continuing, “Byeon Jun-hyung and Spellman account for a large portion of the opposing team. So Heo Woong will take on Byun Jun-hyung, and Jefferson will come out first to stop Spellman.”
Also, “The performance of the first quarter is important. We have to play the first quarter well so that we can manage the game well until the fourth quarter. If the atmosphere is created from the first quarter, the game can be followed. Conversely, if we set the mood in the first quarter, we can play the basketball we want to play,” he said, emphasizing the first quarter.
