I hope our players will feel that conditioning is not about shooting, but about running, rebounding, and fighting, and how important basketball without a ball is.”
Daegu Korea Gas Corporation won 89-81 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Seoul Samsung home game held at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 14th, and sprinted to 6 home wins. KOGAS, which recorded 10 wins and 10 losses, earned a 50% win rate and a tie for 5th place.
As soon as the 3rd quarter started with a score of 37-42, KOGAS turned around by scoring 9 points in a row, widening the score gap thanks to Lee Dae-sung’s 3-point shot. Gas Corporation, which had a clear winning streak, finished with a victory after fighting around 10 points throughout the 4th quarter.
KOGAS coach Yoo Hoon said after the victory that day, “Samsung players were eager and moved well in the beginning, but our players focused only on offense rather than a lot of movement, and their concentration on defense was poor. After the first half, the defense came back to life and the attack worked out well,” he said. “It was a long season, so there were many games left. I hope our players will feel how important basketball without the ball is, that conditioning should be done not by shooting, but by running, rebounding, and fighting. We will need such basketball in the future,” he pointed out the regrettable part of the victory.
“Before the game, I said that any team can ride a roller coaster if an injured player comes out, but Jo Sang-yeol couldn’t play in the second half because of his back. I hope there will be no major injuries,” he added.
In the 4th quarter when Woo Dong-hyun was sent off for 5 fouls, coach Yoo Do-hoon put in Sam Josef Belrangel.안전놀이터
Coach Yoo Do-hoon said, “Even Belrangel grandfather should prepare for the game knowing that he may not be able to play if the basketball we want is not good. Woo Dong-hyun prepared with earnestness, and domestic players such as Jo Sang-yeol suffered for 5-6 months in the offseason.” It is a situation in which they express their will while communicating with each other, whether they will overcome it or create it myself. On the court, I think that a player who is eager to have fun on the court and whom our teammates can appreciate should stand on the court.”
