Wonju DB (8th place) and Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (9th place), who are competing in the lower ranks of SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball KBL, will face off for the 4th time this season.
DB will play a home game against Korea Gas 먹튀검증 Corporation at 7:00 pm on the 26th at Wonju General Gymnasium in Gangwon. DB was behind with 1 win and 2 losses this season.
DB is 8th in the league with 14 wins and 20 losses, and KOGAS is 9th in the league with 13 wins and 19 losses. There is a slight gap with Seoul Samsung (10-24), the weakest team in the league, but only 0.5 game difference from 8th place Suwon KT (14-19). If KT wins the match against Carrot in Goyang on the 27th, it will keep its 7th place, but if it loses, it will give away the 7th place to the winner of the DB-Gas Corporation match or make a tie.
DB broke a 2-game losing streak and recently won 2 games in a row. In particular, against KT on the 23rd, Kang Sang-jae recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, contributing to the team’s victory. In addition, the absence of starting guard Doo Kyung-min was made up for by Park Chan-hee, who returned from injury, and Asian quarter Lee Seon Albano (Philippines), who contributed 11 assists. In addition, he recorded a free throw success rate of over 82% and showed stable game operation. However, unlike the 26-22 defensive rebound, the offensive rebound is 14-22, so it seems that the box-out after the attack and the concentration on the ball need to be supplemented somewhat.
KOGAS broke its three-game losing streak by winning 72-67 against Jeonju KCC (16-18), which ranked sixth in the league. Although Jung Chang-young and Heo Woong scored 21 and 13 points, respectively, and La Gun-ah took 14 rebounds, Gas Corporation had guard Lee Dae-sung and Lee Dae-heon and Murphy Holloway under the goal. On this day, Lee Dae-seong played for over 37 minutes, recording 23 points and 6 rebounds. Lee Dae-heon also performed well with 15 points and 8 rebounds, with a field goal rate of 60%. Holloway had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. However, it is regrettable that Holloway’s field goal rate is 30%, far below the average field goal rate (55.18%).
In this game, the average score of DB and KOGAS, which desperately needs victory, is 87-85, a narrow difference. However, KOGAS only scored 67.2% in the free throw category, 19.5 percentage points lower than DB. Attention is focused on which team will be the owner of the 7th place, the cornerstone of advancing to the playoffs in the round of 6.
