KBL Champ 2nd game SK 81-67
subdued 18 points 3 steals ‘big success’ ‘
iron wall’ Moon Seong-gon tied Kim Seon-hyung’s feet
and clashed in the 3rd game in Jamsil, SK’s home room on the 29th . We focused on both offense and defense this time.”
This is what Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation coach Kim Sang-shik said to reporters in the locker room ahead of the second game against Seoul SK in the professional basketball championship match (7 matches, 4 wins) on the 27th. As coach Kim said, Ginseng Corporation showed poor scoring ability in the first game held on the 25th. Although it was a strong team that ranked first in the league and scored an average of 82 points, it was tied at 69 points. Even on defense, SK’s ‘one-two punch’ Kim Seon-hyeong and Jamil Warney’s exciting ‘unbread basketball’ were helpless. A total of 45 points were dedicated to them.
So coach Kim made a change in the second game. In order to control SK’s ‘commander’ Kim Seon-hyeong, the best defender in the league, Moon Seong-gon, was attached. In the offense, Lens Abando, who scored only 4 points in the first game and was sluggish, started again this time and played ‘basketball of faith’. Coach Kim’s strategy worked just as it was.
Ginseng Corporation won 81-67 in the second round of the 2022-2023 professional basketball SK and champ game held at Anyang Gymnasium that day. Ginseng Corporation, which was hit by SK in the last game, succeeded in reversing the atmosphere with the victory that day, raising the winning probability to 41.7%. Five of the 12 teams that won the second game after losing the first game in the previous championship game won the championship.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
In Ginseng Corporation, ‘veteran’ Oh Se-geun scored 21 points and 9 rebounds, making a big success following the last game (21 points and 16 rebounds). Abando proved to be a ‘SK killer’ by playing an active part in both offense and defense with 18 points and 3 steals. Abando has been strong in the league, averaging 20.4 points against SK. In SK, it was regrettable that Kim Seon-hyung (10 points) and Warney (9 points) were blocked by Ginseng Corporation’s defense. SK ended the 16-game winning streak that started in the regular league.
42-28 Unlike the first half in which Ginseng Corporation was greatly ahead, the second half of the third quarter showed a pattern of clashes between the two teams. When SK followed, Ginseng Corporation ran away several times. In the fourth quarter, SK’s substitution of replacement members instead of Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney led to rather good results. With 2 minutes and 30 seconds left, the score difference is 8 points. At this time, Abando, who came back, brought the atmosphere by scoring consecutively. Ginseng Corporation, which kept its lead until the end, won the game.
Coach Kim said after the game, “The preparation was good. Warney and Kim Seon-hyung’s scores decreased, and overall the players worked well,” he said. Their third match will be held on the 29th at Jamsil Student Gymnasium, the home of SK.
