Both KCC and SK’s command towers emphasized the first quarter game.
Jeonju KCC and Seoul SK will meet in the 3rd game of the 2022-2023 professional basketball quarterfinal playoff held at the Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 7th메이저놀이터.
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, he struggled somewhat due to residual injuries, poor physical condition, and breathing problems.
In the third round, he rebounded and rose to mid-table, but he faltered again in the second half. Nevertheless, they secured their 6th place and confirmed their advance to the playoffs.
However, in the playoffs, they are not very strong. The first game was devastating, and the second game was somewhat different, but after a close match until overtime, they lost to SK. If you record one more loss, KCC’s season is over.
KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin, driven to the brink, said, “We play at home. You must restore your self-esteem. I hope to catch the game today through a good game and catch the second game.”
Afterwards, coach Jeon said, “The first quarter is important. Opponents will do their best to finish. You have to butter there,” he said, emphasizing the first quarter.
On the other hand, the start of the ‘defending champion’ SK was uneasy. The gap between Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F) and Ahn Young-jun (196cm, F) was too great. However, after Choi Jun-yong and Choi Seong-won (184cm, G) joined, it quickly rose.
There was also a crisis. In the second half of the season, Choi Jun-yong was again missing, but Kim Seon-hyung (187cm, G) and Jamil Warney (200cm, C) took the 3rd place in the regular season. In particular, he boasted the best atmosphere by recording all wins in the 6th round.
Even in the playoffs, SK’s upward trend continues. In the first game, they won a great victory, and in the second game, they achieved a dramatic come-from-behind victory, capturing both the first and second games. With a win in Game 3, they are aiming for the playoffs in the quarterfinals.
In response, SK coach Jeon Hee-chul said in an interview before the game, “The players have digested a difficult schedule. So you will be physically exhausted. We have to finish it quickly,” he said.
And “Jeonju has a very strong home atmosphere. It will be a difficult atmosphere for us. He emphasized the first quarter, saying, “To win something
like that, the first quarter is important.” Oh) We have to fill Jae-hyeon’s place. (Choi) Won-hyeok goes first. We have to make the opponents tired,” announcing Choi Won-hyeok (183cm, G)’s selection.
