KT formed the atmosphere in the 3rd quarter, the reason was Yang Hong-seok’s 2 3 points
Yang Hong-seok (195cm, F) created the atmosphere in the third quarter.
Suwon KT defeated Daegu Korea Gas Corporation 86-83 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league held at the Daegu Indoor Gymnasium on the 11th. He escaped from the crisis of losing three in a row. However, with 20 wins and 27 losses, it was not tied for 6th place with Jeonju KCC (21 wins, 26 losses).
KT underwent major changes after the end of the 2021-2022 season. Ace Heo Hoon (180cm, G) enlisted in the Armed Forces Sports Unit, and both foreign players were replaced. Both the field commander who runs the game and the foreign players who need to hold the center have all changed.
That’s why KT thought Yang Hong-seok was important. Yang Hong-seok is a forward who has both physical and athletic abilities. He is also a forward with the highest energy level on the team. His 3-point shooting ability is also excellent.
However, in the 2022-2023 season, I had to play more roles. The defense ratio has also increased, and the two-on-two development and court balance must be grasped.
However, KT’s situation was not good. So KT threw the number of wins. It was decided to replace both foreign players. Newly joined Jarrod Jones 메이저사이트(206cm, F) and Lester Prosper (204cm, C) gave KT six consecutive victories.
However, the rise of KT and Yang Hong-seok was short-lived. Performance subsided again. The performance of the 6th place competitors such as KCC and DB has only subsided, but both KT and Yang Hong-seok must make ‘improvement of performance’ their first task. The same goes for Korea Gas Corporation.
Yang Hong-seok was active from the offensive rebound. He took a breath with a lot of movement. And he balanced the court with a quick break and an exquisite pass at the high post. He recorded 4 points, 3 rebounds (attack 1) and 1 assist in the first quarter, and KT also led the first quarter with a score of 26-23.
However, Yang Hong-seok could not maintain his liveliness. That was the beginning of the 2nd quarter. He attempted a 3-pointer, but it was off balance. Yang Hong-seok, who lost both his energy level and shooting sense, retired to the bench 1 minute 7 seconds after the start of the second quarter. KT finished the first half with 43-45.
Yang Hong-seok was put back in as soon as the third quarter started. His body was supposed to cool down, but Yang Hong-seok’s shot did not. In the 3rd quarter, he succeeded as a dribble jumper on his first field goal. He also scored a 3-pointer 4 minutes and 12 seconds before the end of the third quarter.
Yang Hong-seok, who was excited by shooting, regained his energy. Both rebounding and defense were active as in the first quarter. 2 minutes and 55 seconds before the end of the third quarter, he made a 3-point shot that ran away 60-50. Yang Hong-seok’s 3 points led KT to rise, and KT, who rode the rise, finished the third quarter with 67-55.
Yang Hong-seok’s presence in the fourth quarter declined. To be precise, Yang Hong-seok’s activity and fighting spirit contrasted with Korea Gas Corporation’s energy level.
However, Dave Ildefonso (192cm, G) and Jones ended the game. In particular, Jones’ three points were decisive. Because Jones scored the final 3 points in the last attack. However, there is something to think about. The reason KT maintained the lead was that Yang Hong-seok scored 3 points and 2 rooms in the 3rd quarter.
