KGC Ginseng Corporation and Carrot’s ‘Kim Seung-gi Derby’, which ranked first in the regular league, were concluded, and LG and SK met in spring basketball after 23 seasons.
This is reporter Cho Seong-heum.
Coach Seung-gi Kim led the KGC Ginseng Corporation for 7 years from 2016 and brought the team to the semifinals 4 times.스포츠토토
After moving to the new team Carrot this season, he led the team to the semifinals from the first year.
During the season, coach Kim, who couldn’t say a beautiful farewell with remarks that seemed to slander Ginseng Corporation, unfortunately met his former team at spring basketball.
The key players in the quarter-final matchup are coach Kim’s favorite students.
Ginseng Corporation’s Byun Jun-hyung, who grew up under coach Kim’s training and was also nominated for MVP in the regular league this season, and Carrot Lee Jung-hyun, who became a new student this season, are expected to decide the match.
<Lee Jung-Hyun / Carrot Jumpers> “They praised me so much for entering the playoffs. That’s why I played hard so as not to disappoint them in the next game, and I plan to do the same for the semifinal playoffs.”
It is only 23 seasons since the 2000-2001 season that the second place LG and the third place SK have met in spring basketball.
LG with solid defense, and SK with a fast attack, SK is evaluated as superior in objective power.
Marey, who topped LG in rebounding and steals this season, left due to a calf injury.
A substitute player, Perry, was recruited, but since he is a player who emphasizes the offensive side compared to Marey, the key is to fill the loose defense.
SK, on the other hand, last season’s regular league MVP Choi Jun-yong was out due to injury, but this season’s regular league MVP Kim Seon-hyeong recorded a double-double in all playoff games to fill the void.
The semi-final playoff, which determines the two teams heading into the championship match, starts with a confrontation between Ginseng Corporation and Carrot.
