Choi Sung-won (184cm, G), who is writing career high, is emerging as a new ace for Chung Kwan-kwan.
Anyang Jeonggwanjang lost 78-94 against Suwon KT in the fourth round of the 2023-2024 Jeonggwanjang Professional Basketball held at Suwon KT Arena on the 27th. The 8th place Jeonggwanjang’s season record is 13 wins and 22 losses. The gap with seventh place Daegu Korea Gas Corporation was one game.
Chung has been unable to move away from the injury throughout the season. Physical fitness problems caused by one player’s injury are affecting another. It is hard to find a player who has never been injured.
He has to join the EASL (East Asian Super League) in the KBL schedule, which is so busy that it is hard to find a precedent. Fortunately, he caught TNT Trofangi on the 24th. He has confirmed his advance to the Final Four.토토사이트
Chung has minimized rotation to secure advancement to the Final Four. Robert Carter (206 cm, F) and Jamil Wilson (203 cm, F) could not even take a second off. Bae Byung-joon (188 cm, F), Choi Sung-won and Park Ji-hoon (184 cm, G) competed for more than 33 minutes and 50 seconds. The only players who stepped on the court on the day were Jung Joon-won (193 cm, F) who played for only 10 minutes and 21 seconds, and Go Chan-hyuk (184 cm, G), who played for 3 minutes and 50 seconds.
It was a matter that could have had a significant impact on the match, which will take place three days after the EASL. Kim Sang-sik, head coach of the Chungcheong Provincial Government, said he would set the playing time between Park Ji-hoon and Choi Sung-won within 35 minutes.
Jeong Gwan-gwan poured out his firepower from the first quarter. Although he had some difficulties in defending KT with switch defense to check the outskirts, he found a solution with fast transition and early offens. KT scored three points before forming a defensive formation.
Wilson raised his energy level instead of Carter in the second quarter, which seemed to be somewhat behind. He wasn’t in perfect physical condition, but he actively fought inside and outside.
And Choi Sung-won, who is recording career high with 15.3 points, 1.4 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 0.9 steals in the fourth round, led the pursuit in the third quarter. He caught up to one point gap with three points and three walks using his personal skills such as side step back. The number of assists significantly increased after the transfer of Chung, but he took on the role of troubleshooter in the game.
However, Chung lost concentration after KT’s operation time. He allowed KT to counterattack by making turnovers and attempting somewhat fast fieldwork. The score, which had a one-point gap until 4 minutes and 50 seconds before the end of the third quarter, increased to 18 points after the end of the third quarter. As Chung, who reveals his weakness in the latter half due to physical stamina, sought to turn the tables.
Despite this, Chung never gave up. Park Ji-hoon scored all three free throws that he acquired through U-foul Lee Yun-ki (189 cm, F) and Paris Bath (200 cm, F) technical fouls. He seemed to have seized his last chance.
However, Park allowed Moon (194 cm, F) to steal. Moon put out Chung`s final fire when he finished the game with a dunk shot.
Choi Sung-won stood out even amid the loss. He added two rebounds, four assists, and two steals to his team’s 21 points, the most among the players. He also recorded the highest participation time (33 minutes and 57 seconds) in his team.
This is Choi Sung-won, who is gradually developing his influence within the team. Even considering the team’s somewhat disappointing performance, he is writing down his FA success story.
