“There is nothing more to squeeze.”
These are the words of Jeon Hee-chul, head coach of Seoul SK, who is in danger.
Seoul SK lost 70-81 in the 3rd game of the ‘2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball’ championship decision (7 matches, 4 wins) against Anyang KGC held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 29th. After one win, SK fell into a 2-game losing streak.
After the game, Jeon said, “The first half played well. (Players) may be tired. We have a small number of people. In the third quarter, we defended well and gave 3 or 4 offensive rebounds in a row. There, we set the mood. There is a limit, but I think losing a rebound to opponent Omari Spellman wasn’t a big hit.” SK led 18-5 at one point in the first half. However, in the middle of the third quarter, the opponent gave the lead. After that, I lost without finding the atmosphere.크크크벳
Manager Jeon said, “Jamie Warney tried to keep his mind and work hard, but it didn’t work out well. The field goal success rate has dropped a lot. There is nothing more to squeeze. We have to hope that the two players will explode. We need to think more about that part, but believe in the players. I think I have no choice but to go. I don’t think there is any way to change it anymore. After we changed the attack, we returned to the normal match-up. It seems that Seon-seon is struggling a lot in that part.” On this day, Warney’s 2-point shooting success rate was only 25%.
The two teams will face off once again at the same venue on May 1st. Coach Jeon said, “Starting from the 4th game, I think I will have to trust the players. I don’t think there is anything that can be changed. The players have no choice but to endure mentally in the offense and defense. What remains is to endure with that part. The opponent I know that is a strong team. Once, but we have two more at home. I will do my best to go to Anyang again with a good game.”
