Korea Gas Corporation’s dependence on Lee Dae-sung has decreased and power has become thicker
Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, a professional basketball player, is recovering. KOGAS, which only won twice in the first round, has recently won 3 consecutive wins, raising its winning rate to 50% and settling in 5th place in the league. This is because the other players are evenly sharing the burden of scoring that Lee Dae-seong had shouldered alone.
On the 14th, Korea Gas Corporation won 89-81 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Seoul Samsung match, achieving 3 consecutive wins in the league and 6 consecutive wins at home. Lee Dae-seong recorded the most points for both teams with 24 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists, Jeong Hyo-geun with 12 points and 4 rebounds, and Lee Dae-heon with 11 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists. Murhy Followay recorded a double-double with 17 points and 17 rebounds.
Lee Dae-sung’s explosive scoring ability is not new news. Lee Dae-sung, who ranked first among domestic players last season, is also second in scoring this season with an average of 16.6 points per game, following Jeon Seong-hyun (average of 18.4 points). Of the 20 games he played this season, Lee Dae-sung scored 20 points or more in 9 of them.
Korea Gas Corporation’s weakness was that it lacked stable scoring resources to lead Lee Dae-sung’s explosive power to victory. The average performance of Murphy Holloway, a foreign player with one option, this season is 13.05 points, 10.15 rebounds, and 2.95 assists, which is an unfortunate performance to leave the offense. Lee Dae-heon, who was not in good shape at the beginning of the season, scored less than last season, and Jung Hyo-geun, who was Korea Gas Corporation’s ‘surprise card’ this season, took time to adapt to the court after a long absence.
In the match against Jeonju KCC last October, Korea Gas Corporation’s season opener, Lee Dae-seong alone scored 25 points, but the result was a 72-81 defeat. He couldn’t win by relying on one top scorer.
As the season enters the middle, Korea Gas Corporation’s power seems to be stabilizing. On the 11th, KOGAS won 100-95 in the match against Anyang KGC, the league leader. On this day, Lee Dae-seong only scored 9 points, but Jeong Hyo-geun added 14 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Bench member Jo Sang-yeol scored 14 points, and Woo Dong-hyun scored 12 points against his former team, the highest individual score this season.안전놀이터
Korea Gas Corporation is showing a completely different performance compared to the first round. As Woo Dong-hyeon, Jeon Hyeon-woo, and Jo Sang-yeol became available scoring resources, the power became thicker. The end of this year is expected to be a starting point for Korea Gas Corporation to leap to the top.
