“(Yang) Hong-seok’s recent performance is beyond reproach” (KT coach Seo Dong-cheol)
Seoul SK will hold the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball round 5 at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 14th. In the match, they will face off against Suwon KT. 4th place SK’s season record was 23 wins and 17 losses. It is chasing 3rd place Ulsan Hyundai Mobis by 0.5 game.
SK, which gained momentum with three consecutive victories, lost to Changwon LG after a close match. Although Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F) was injured, he pursued until the end, but lost momentum after Choi Won-hyuk (183cm, G) was sent off for five fouls and SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol’s technical foul.
Choi Jun-yong, who left due to an injury ahead of the match against LG, will also miss the match against KT that day. It will take more than a week to recover from the injury.
SK is performing excellently with 19 wins and 7 losses in Choi Jun-yong’s matches. However, they are struggling with 4 wins and 10 losses in matches against Choi Jun-yong.
SK’s schedule is even tougher in the future. 6 matches will be played in 10 days including the match on this day. A back-to-back match is also scheduled. EASL scheduled for early March is also waiting for SK.
SK coach Jeon Hee-chul said before the game, “We expect a difficult game. It will be tight. It’s hard when you go to the height fight. The two wins against KT were won because they were ahead in speed while matching the height. You have to do a lot of fastballs. Yang Hong-seok also needs to be controlled. Yang Hong-seok and Ha Yoon-gi collaborated on 40 points. lead the game It’s not easy to block both at the same time. Yang Hong-seok tries a lot of 2v2 attacks. prefer the right I will attack that part. In the 4th confrontation with KT, it was completely blocked until the 3rd quarter. In the big frame, the game operation is similar.”
He said, “In the last game against LG, I was pushed back. It’s okay to miss a quick break, but you have to find a loser. (Kim) Seon-hyung, (Oh) Jae-hyeon, and (Jamil) Warney’s shooting tempo was fast. I threw it hastily because I wanted to follow it. When the opponent is looking for a rhythm, we should rather slow down the tempo. It collapsed as I tried to quickly make up for it on the day when the attack didn’t work out. (Choi) Jun-yong’s condition hasn’t been good lately. Even so, he took advantage of the long hours. This is because there are many derived attacks. With Ha Yoon-gi, he solves the 2-on-2 attack well. This is the most difficult part for KT. In today’s game, we will use the court as wide as possible.”
Lastly, “(Choi) Bu-gyeong takes a break, (Sun) Sang-hyeok is put in. He said that you have to hold out for 5 to 10 minutes before the game. I had a hard time in the morning defense practice. There are many unseen promises in defense. On this day’s game, we decided not to switch defense against the 2v2 attack of other players except for Yang Hong-seok. Sang-hyeok also has no problems in normal defense. In fact, at an earlier point than now I was able to join the first team at the All-Star break. I tried to call him up to the first team before the All-Star break. I have no luck. If I try to give him a chance, I get hurt. I don’t get hurt by contact with other players. I get hurt myself. . I will give you a chance,” he said.
Meanwhile, KT is struggling to advance to the playoffs in the round of 6. 6th place KT’s season record was 18 wins and 23 losses. It is ahead of Jeonju KCC in 7th place without a ride.
KT’s performance is running wide. The effect of replacing foreign players has also faded. Both Jarrod Jones (208cm, F) and Lester Prosper (204cm, C) are showing off their ups and downs.
KT, who finished the 4th round with 4 wins and 5 losses, is also reaping a somewhat disappointing result with 2 wins and 3 losses in the 5th round. In the first game of the 5th round, they lost to Seoul Samsung, who lost 13 straight games.
Nevertheless, Yang Hong-seok (195cm, F) and Ha Yoon-ki (204cm, C) are in peak condition. Yang Hong-seok exploded with an average of 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3 assists in 5 games in the 5th round. 19.8 points is the highest average score among domestic players in 5 rounds.
Ha Yoon-ki is averaging 18.2 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists in 5 games in 5 rounds. The 4th round continues. Together with Yang Hong-seok, he plays an active part as KT’s one-two punch.
KT coach Seo Dong-cheol said before the game, “The presence or absence of Choi Jun-yong makes a big difference. Conversely, it is also a burden. The fact that you must win is a burden. He is a good basketball player.” 먹튀검증
After that, “The poor scoring of foreign players is a concern. It is not something that can be solved by force. The defense can be solved with practice. The defensive part does not change easily. The offense makes various attempts. In particular, the 3-point shot success rate is It is jagged. The attack radius of foreign players is concentrated on the outskirts. Moved to the bottom of the goal, and it overlapped with (bottom) Yoongi. We are contemplating to increase the field goal success rate as much as possible. Nevertheless, the players are in good condition. All teams “The schedule is tight, and it’s a tough time physically. We’re relaxed in the player rotation. There was no back-to-back schedule. Physically, it’s good.”
With Choi Jun-yong leaving, SK’s score distribution was concentrated on Jamil Warney (200cm, C). Warney scored 37 points in the game against LG on the 12th.
“I had a meeting with the players. We formed a consensus on the need to reduce Jamil Warney’s score. We prepared a help defense in defense. It is not easy to block Jamil Warney. We will match up with a foreign player. will be the starter. Yoongi will go to help defense. It is difficult to block Jameel Warney with a one-on-one. There are various scoring routes. A quick attack, isolation from the low post and high post, and even a two-on-two attack.” Explained.
Lastly, “Hongseok’s recent performance is beyond reproach. Since last year, he has pointed out that he only attacks without paying attention to defense. The contribution to defense is also quite high in the 2022-2023 season, especially recently. He works passionately. Don’t get pointed out. In the attack, try to refrain from overdoing it. You’re doing well.
