“The front line released it with a fighting spirit.”
Jeonju KCC won 89-77 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Suwon KT match held at Jeonju Gymnasium on the 20th. With this victory, KCC moved up to 7th place with Seoul Samsung.
In KCC, Laguna (30 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists) exploded the most points in the team, and Heo Woong (14 points, 3 assists) and Kim Ji-wan (11 points, 3 assists) scored double digits to help the team win.
Manager Jeon Chang-jin said, “I think I played a leisurely game for the first time this season. Foreign players faithfully played their respective roles, and (Park) Gyeong-sang and (Jeong) Chang-yeong defended well against Jung Sung-woo and Yang Hong-seok in the invisible part, so I think it was a good match. He released it well, and it seems to have found (Kim) Ji-wan’s shooting ability, so it seems to be better.”
On this day, if Laguna led the atmosphere of KCC, it was Ronde Hollis-Jefferson who played a sufficient supporting role next to him. He played 12 minutes and 29 seconds and recorded 9 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. He stood out for his aggressiveness from defense to rebounding, and in attack, he made good assists using his teammates, and the part where he hit the bottom of the goal and finished it was also neat. 안전놀이터
Director Jeon Chang-jin said, “I think it is a double-edged sword. In this case, it became a sword against the opposing team. The problem is when the defense part or the probability of the middle shot is low. Still, in this game, the fact that he went in and finished well helped the team.”
Against KT’s big lineup, coach Jeon Chang-jin emphasized transition. Which part did you like best? “The overall defense, including the forward line, was not pushed. He prepared a lot on defense. If the front line collapses, the outskirts are allowed. He played an easy game because he fought well in the front line.”
