DB of height also won, leading Sooho

Seoul SK tied for third place with Suwon KT (14 wins and 8 losses) by beating Goyang Sono 80-70 in the 2023-2024 KBL at Goyang Gymnasium on the 21st.

Ahn Young-joon, who has been performing well this season, led the team to victory with 21 points and three rebounds, including four three-point shots. His attack was also impressive when he tried to induce fouls by the opponent through offense or strong forward pressure.

For Sono, Chinanu Onoaku scored 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Jeon Sung-hyun scored 18 points, including three points and five four, but failed to overcome Lee Jung-hyun’s absence. The main reason for this was that handlers gave up the ball in succession due to SK’s strong forward pressure, and gave up turnovers.

At the same time, Wonju DB beat Korea Gas Corporation 85-72 in an away game to escape a losing streak.

After losing two consecutive games, DB posted 19 wins and five losses, widening its gap with second-ranked Changwon LG (16 wins and six losses) to two games. In contrast, Korea Gas Corporation ended its winning streak due to DB’s loss.

DB teased its opponent by banking on its unique height. Kang Sang-jae scored 23 points and 11 rebounds. On top of that, Jeff Withy had 10 rebounds and Didreuk Lawson and Kim Jong-kyu had eight, overwhelming Korea Gas Corporation with a total of 49 rebounds.

In particular, the height of the offense was superb. DB had 18 offensive rebounds alone. Andrew Nicholson fought hard to secure 22 points and five rebounds for Korea Gas Corporation, which was pushed back from the height, but it was not enough. Lee Dae-heon, a native of Korea Gas Corporation, was also disappointed with five points and four rebounds. DB led the game 22-18 from the first quarter, leading in the second quarter (26-19) and the third quarter (26-19).

In the fourth quarter, the team took out the main players and operated stably, but the game ended with 72-85 due to Korea Gas Corporation’s sluggish three points. Kang Sang-jae (23 points and 11 rebounds), Lawson (21 points and eight rebounds), Kim Jong-kyu (11 points and eight rebounds), and Withy (8 points and 10 rebounds) performed evenly.
