Coach Song Young-jin of Suwon KT, who invited professional basketball team Busan KCC to their home, analyzed that victory or defeat depended on blocking the opponent's main gun, Heo Woong.

Coach Song met with reporters ahead of the home game against KCC in the 2023-2024 Jeong Kwan-Jang Professional Basketball Regular League held at Suwon KT Arena in Gyeonggi-do on the 7th and said, “(Heo) Woong must be stopped somehow. 카지노사이트

“I think we need to focus (in the game) on suppressing (Heo Woong’s) scoring,” he said.

KT (80.5 points) has the third-lowest average conceded points this season, following Changwon LG (77.1 points) and Seoul SK (77.2 points).

Jeom is filled with players who are good at perimeter defense.

Coach Song said he would entrust Heo Woong's defense to Han Hee-won, who also joined the national team as an perimeter defender.

Director Song emphasized, “I will hold you accountable.

I will focus on blocking Heo Woong.”

Although KCC has lost all of professional basketball's best forwards, including Choi Jun-yong and Song Kyo-chang, due to injuries, Heo Woong's recent performance has been impressive.

In the away game against Goyang Sono (117-85 KCC win) on the 5th, he scored 31 points and led the attack by providing 10 assists.

Coach Song trusts Heo Woong’s younger brother, national guard Heo Hoon.

Heo Hoon made his comeback from an injury at the end of last month, but he has yet to play for more than 30 minutes.

Coach Song said, "I think (Heo Hoon's playing time) will increase more and more.

His body has improved a lot, and his psychological aspect has also improved," and "There was a hiatus, but there will be some pressure upon his return.

We will overcome that together." He said.

On the contrary, for KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin, Heo Hoon is the person to be most wary of.

Coach Jeon said, "(Heo) Woong is quite good at blocking Jeong Seong-woo.

But now Heo Hoon comes out and moves around (the court), which causes difficulties."

He added, "In the past, (Song) Gyo-chang was on defense, but now (Lee) Ho-hyeon has to be on the defense.

Ho-hyeon is slow on the feet and a little lacking in speed, but I decided to do it responsibly."

Coach Jeon pointed out that he was largely responsible for the team's situation, which was evaluated as a championship candidate before the opening, but fell to 6th place (24 wins, 20 losses) due to injuries to key players.

He said, “Even if all the players are not able to gather, it is the coach’s responsibility.”

He added, “The members’ inability to participate for one reason or another leads to poor performance.

The coach is responsible for the performance.”
