Suwon KT lost 68-76 against Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 18th.
KT fell into a two-game losing streak with the loss that day and stayed in 7th place with 20 wins and 29 losses. The ride with 6th place Jeonju KCC is 2.5 games away, and it is virtually difficult to advance to the playoffs in the 6th place.
Prior to the match, KT coach Seo Dong-cheol prepared for the defense while being wary of KGC Ginseng Corporation’s scoring ability. Director Seo said, “(Omari) Spellman and (Daryl) Monroe have different styles. Differentiate between the spellman defense and the monroe defense to prepare for different types of defense. In the 5th round match, Spellman took a good shot. The goal is not to give Spellman multiple points. He practiced with the players and made a promise. In Spellman Matchup, (Ha) Yoongi comes out and matches up,” stressing Ha Yoongi’s role.
At the beginning of the game, coach Seo’s intentions worked. Jarod Jones (203cm, F) and Ha Yoon-gi attempted an attack to save height by bringing down Omari Spellman (206cm, F), who had a strong outside tendency. Ha Yun-ki made good use of his skills, post-up and break-through, in his post and succeeded in scoring under the goal.
Ha Yun-ki showed confidence in the post, with a field success rate of 100% (4/4) in the first quarter, and started the game in a good mood스포츠토토, scoring 10 points.
In the second quarter, Ha Yoon-gi made use of his height in defense rather than offense. In particular, at 9:25 in the 2nd quarter, Byun Jun-hyeong (186cm, G) accurately blocked a layup shot, and in the 2nd quarter at 1:06, Park Ji-hoon (184cm, G) succeeded in stealing against Spellman who was trying to receive a pass. made an impressive appearance.
Until the second quarter, Ha Yun-ki followed coach Seo Dong-chul’s orders and led the team’s lead to 36-35 with 12 points and 3 rebounds.
However, after the 3rd quarter, Ha Yoon-gi’s appearance was not strong. KGC Ginseng Corporation allowed Spellman to reverse the attack using the inside and showing inferiority in team rebound. Ha Yoon-gi struggled against Spellman’s mark armed with skill and power, and scored only 2 points in attack.
In the end, in the 4th quarter, Ha Yoon-gi played only 3 minutes and 26 seconds, failing to prevent the team from losing. On this day, Ha Yoon-gi ran for 29 minutes and 27 seconds, recording 15 points and 5 assists.
From a record point of view, Ha Yoon-gi’s performance was okay, but it was regrettable that he could not carry on the performance of the first half in the second half. It was good to properly divide the court with Jones, KT’s first attack option, but it is still a homework to refine that he has not been able to utilize his skills in the match.
The time has come for Ha Yoon-ki, who is entering his second year as a pro, to reduce his ups and downs and elaborate on his height.
