Anyang KGC defeated Seoul SK and turned the championship game back to square one. Head coach Kim Sang-sik credited the team’s victory to the players, saying, “It was a well-prepared game.”
At a press conference immediately after the 81-67 victory in the second leg of the 2022-23 professional basketball championship game against SK held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 27th크크크벳, coach Kim Sang-sik said, “I focused on defense, reducing the scores of Jamil Warney and Kim Seon-hyung and inducing the opponent to consume their physical strength. The operation went well as expected,” he said.
KGC, which was defeated by Warney and Kim Seon-hyung in the first game home, took out thorough preparations, such as attaching Moon Seong-gon to Kim Seon-hyung. And by tying Warney with 9 points and Kim Seon-hyung with 10 points, respectively, they gave victory in front of the home fans.
Coach Kim said to Spellman, “‘I told him that it was a fight with SK, not Warney. Spellman also said he would play for the team rather than greed. I focused a lot on passing and rebounding,” he said. “Moon Seong-gon also effectively blocked Kim Seon-hyung. Overall, he did well as he prepared.”
He said he was “surprised” about the fact that SK left out a large number of key players such as Kim Seon-hyung and Warney in the last 5 minutes when they were trailing by 14 points. Director Kim said, “After seeing the SK replacement, we also delayed the replacement timing. I took it longer to see even 1-2 minutes more,” he explained. Previously, coach Jeon said, “I thought the game would be difficult. I didn’t give up on the game. I’m sorry to the fans,” he explained.
KGC, who finished the 2nd home game, has to play all the 3rd to 5th games on the road due to the rental of the Jamsil Student Gymnasium. Director Kim Sang-sik said, “It’s unfortunate, but there’s nothing we can do about it. We have to do our best to play in the given situation,” he said. “The schedule has already been decided. Conversely, the 6th and 7th games will be held at our home. I will do my best until the end,” he said.
