Coach Cho Sang-hyun, who lost in the home opening game, made a bitter comment towards the players.
Changwon LG, led by coach Cho Sang-hyun, lost 66-71 to Suwon KT in the home opening game of the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball Regular League held at Changwon Gymnasium.
Both teams fought closely throughout the game. LG’s Assem Marey (17 points, 13 rebounds) and Lee Kwan-hee (14 points, 3 rebounds) played hard, but lost by only 8 points in the fourth quarter. In addition, LG’s 3-point shot success rate, which rarely made shots from the outside at critical moments, was only 23% (7/30).짱구카지노 도메인
Coach Cho Sang-hyun said before the game, “I’m worried about the start of every season. The evaluation of the team will not be known until the end of the season. So, I told all the players that if they won the competition and made it, I would hire them,” he said, heading into the regular season.
The concerns became reality. Coach Jo Sang-hyun, who met after the game, said, “It hasn’t been long since (Yang) Hong-seok joined. He defended through the first game. “I realized that I had more to prepare for in terms of enemies and other aspects. (Yang) Jun-seok should have pushed me more in a quick attack situation, but I think I was still lacking a lot,” he said, expressing his regret.
He continued, “You can’t win if you give away 14 offensive rebounds. I think they were in a hurry overall. I think the game would have been different if one or two shots had been made on the outside. Looking at the players who replaced (Lee) Jae-do, there are a lot of things that are disappointing, so we need more time. “I saw that it was done,” he said.
Coach Cho Sang-hyun’s diagnosis was that KT’s defense against foreign players was not bad, but the problem lay elsewhere. Coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “I don’t think the defense against Paris Bass was bad. However, it seemed like our team’s players had forgotten the defense they had prepared. Also, we were left behind in rebounds, which left a lot to be desired.”
He then expressed his frustration, saying, “There were too many things I missed throughout the game. There is nothing to say about losing a rebound in a free throw situation. I am not prepared. There is no box-out movement, and it seems like the players do not know the seriousness of it.”
Meanwhile, LG will try again for its first win in the twin derby against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis to be held at Ulsan Dongcheon Gymnasium on the 23rd.
