Coach Jeon Chang-jin saw hope even in difficult situations.
Jeonju KCC lost 73-86 in the 5th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Suwon KT held at Suwon KT Sonicboom Arena on the 12th. With the defeat on the day, it fell to 7th place (17 wins, 22 losses).
Recently, bad news continues for KCC one after another. Following Lee Seung-hyun’s departure due to an elbow injury, Heo Ung was also virtually out of the season due to an ankle injury. Here, as Lone University Hollis Jefferson, who caused the controversy over the slowdown, was expelled, the foreign player Laguna was left alone. 먹튀검증
Nevertheless, KCC showed good performance against KT in the first half. At the center was Laguna. In the first half alone, Lagunah led KCC with 20 points and 10 rebounds, completely dominating the bottom of the goal. KCC, with Laguna at the forefront, reached halftime with 40-41.
However, in the second half, concentration dropped sharply and the score gap widened. Along with La Gun-ah, Kim Ji-wan showed strength, but he could not control KT’s attack with Yang Hong-seok, Ha Yoon-ki, and Jung Sung-woo at all. In the end, it was overwhelmed in the second half and suffered defeat.
After the game, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “We got reversed at the end of the second quarter and started the third quarter. I think that flow is still connected. He played the first game with the remaining players, and he did better than expected. I think players who haven’t been able to play in the meantime should train for self-development through the game.”
The performance of the remaining players is important for KCC to continue fighting for the middle ranks. Lee Jong-hyeon and Kim Sang-gyu under the goal, and Calvin Jeffrey Epistola, Song Dong-hun, and Kim Ji-wan from the front line should give their strength.
Coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “I think the defense should be good. The inferiority in height was something that continued to be difficult throughout the season. In the future, when we meet teams with high heights, we need to overcome them.”
