Coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “I finished the tough schedule well. It’s a really pleasant victory. I didn’t tell the players, but KGC was the team that was blocked last year after winning 15 consecutive wins. All. Thank you so much for winning. I tried to fight with a one-on-one defense, and he was really good at adjusting the tempo.”
“To be honest, I couldn’t win basketball because I was strong-willed, but I was able to win because the players judged coolly and showed their motivation. Today, I am really grateful to the players. They played really well. I felt the same emotions I felt during the championship match. In the 3rd quarter, it was a battle point, but I did not get pushed back, and I got a sense of the 4th quarter. I instructed the players a lot about the shot selection part, and they did it well. I am proud and proud. I have the power of a defending champion and have great players. I think it’s a blessing,” he added.
Oh Jae-hyeon (3 points) did not score many points, but he hit a 3-point shot, the decisive match.
Director Jeon said, “Oh Jae-hyun missed the shot and couldn’t find the rhythm, but he put it in when it was really important and there was no problem. He grew up while going through that. Even if it didn’t work out, he did it at an important moment.”
Regarding the cheering of the full crowd, “Today, if we were away, we would have lost. There were so many fans and the enthusiasm of the cheering was a big boost. It was possible because it was home. Even though the players were exhausted, they received the support from the fans and gained energy. Listening to the cheering, It gives me a lot of strength. Even in the third quarter, there were cheers from the fans, and it was thanks to the fans that I felt it was possible.”
The fact that Kim Seon-hyung, who is showing off rust-free skills even in his mid-30s, is also equipped with skill is a great help to SK.
Coach Jeon said, “My field of vision has widened and my sense of rhythm has improved. In the past, the proportion of rim attacks was high, but now, as I enter, my view to the other side has widened and my judgment has improved. If you look at it, the score should drop, but I judged well and went up together. I know the timing when the ball should go out,” he pointed out.
