Heo Woong (30, 185 cm) showed off his ‘ace’ attitude and led his team to victory.
Busan KCC defeated Changwon LG 91-89 in a Group B qualifier for the 카지노사이트 2023 MG Saemaul KBL Cup at Wolmyeong Gymnasium in Gunsan on Nov. 13. KCC has won two straight games and is headed to the quarterfinals.
Leading the way in the win was Hwoong, who exploded for 27 points, including five three-pointers, alongside Alize DeShawn Johnson (19 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists).
After the game, Hwoong said, “I usually play without thinking about my shooting. I just think about the play I need to make, but this game, I think my shooting feeling was exceptionally good,” he said after the victory.
Johnson’s performance was also highlighted by a new foreign player. Along with offseason addition Choi Jun-yong, he has given KCC a new offensive option, but how does Huong see it?
“With Johnson and (Choi) Jun-yong, we definitely have a good fast break. We play a fast-paced offense, so I think we have a good team atmosphere. I also see a lot of good opportunities when I move a lot,” he said positively.
“I think other teams are going to copy us a lot. If we play like we did in the second and third quarters, I don’t think we’ll be scared of any team.”
However, there were also disappointments. Despite their dominant performance in the third quarter, the team allowed LG to make a late comeback in the fourth quarter to win the game.
“I want to focus on the point that we won,” Heo said, “There are many different situations in the game. We talked among the players about not playing like this next time.”
