“I hope the players don’t get discouraged about the lack of results.”
Daegu Korea Gas Corporation lost 스포츠토토102-108 in the 5th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Changwon LG held at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 8th. With the defeat on this day, KOGAS fell into a 6-game losing streak and a 5-game losing streak against LG at the same time.
Ahead of the game, Coach Yoo Hoon did not let go of hope, saying, “Even in the situation of five consecutive losses, there is a possibility of advancing to the playoffs if we win three or four in a row.” With 17 seconds left in the game, KOGAS’ Jung Hyo-geun made a 3-point shot and seemed to have succeeded in reversing the game, but coach Yoo Do-hoon’s earnestness did not work.
After the game, coach Yoo Do-hoon said, “The performance wasn’t bad. It was not a game where turnovers occurred at critical times, and it was not a game that could be won by giving 100 points on defense. I wished the help rotation was well done in the part where the inside defense and outside defense were shaking, but there are definitely physical problems. Cooperation defense has to be done in order to play winning basketball, but it is unfortunate that it continues to fall short.”
“The players are doing their best, but the results are important for the pros. I hope the players don’t get discouraged about the lack of results. I hope to continue the various situations that can improve the value of the players, and I will prepare well for the next game,” he encouraged the players.
When asked if the ball flowed to LG and LG wasn’t lucky, coach Yoo Do-hoon said, “Luck is also a skill. Rather than luck, I need explanations and instructions on accurate defense to the players. What needs to be acknowledged must be acknowledged to develop and the next alternative will come out. I will try to win as soon as possible,” he said.
