Choi Seung-wook and Kim Jong-gyu, who lightly shouldered Doo Kyung-min, DB’s ‘new wings’

Choi Seung-wook and Kim Jong-kyu supported DB’s escape from three consecutive losses. 

Wonju DB won 91-82 against Goyang Carrot in the 3rd round of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball held at Wonju Sports Complex on the 13th. DB, who broke a three-game losing streak, rose to ninth place alone. The season record is 8 wins and 12 losses.

DB fell into a slump of 1 win and 9 losses in the last 10 games played before the game on this day. He escaped from a 6-game losing streak by catching Seoul Samsung, but recorded another 3-game losing streak.

Doo Kyung-min (184cm, G), Dewan Hernandez (206cm, C), and Kang Sang-jae (200cm, F) were injured in order. Having lost a key player, DB could not come up with a solution.

Fortunately, Doo Kyung-min recovered from a calf injury. However, DB could not find a clue to the return of Doo Kyung-min. They lost 29 points at home against Seoul SK.

In addition, even Park Chan-hee (190cm, G) was excluded from the list for the match. The match against Carrot didn’t look easy either.

DB coach Lee Sang-beom said before the game, “I will start with Doo Kyung-min. I will try to play after warming up enough. It may be better than going in as a substitute while on the bench. I will adjust the playing time depending on the situation.”

After returning, Doo Kyung-min attempted 8 3-point shots in 2 games and only succeeded in 1. He made a difficult comeback, but not in normal condition.

However, the game on this day, when he returned to the starting lineup after 5 games, was different. He showed explosive power from the first quarter. He drove 6 minutes and 57 seconds and drove in 10 points. DB scored 32 points in the first quarter alone thanks to Doo Kyung-min’s performance.

Even so, Carrot was not pushed back. Jeon Seong-hyun (189cm, F) and Didric Lawson (202cm, F) pursued fiercely.

Jeon Seong-hyeon’s destructive power was beyond imagination. He made eight 3-pointers. He struggled alone even without the help of his comrades.

On the other hand, DB players lightened Doo Kyung-min’s shoulders. Choi Seung-wook (193cm, F) and Kim Jong-gyu (207cm, C) came to the fore.

Coach Lee Sang-beom said before the game, “Choi Seung-wook is consistently active. He does his part in defense and rebounding. It’s not easy to ask him to even attack. It can adversely affect what he’s doing well.”

Nevertheless, Choi Seung-wook showed off his offensive ability from the start of the game. He tried to post up against Jeon Seong-hyun and raised the score with vigorous movements. 토토사이트

Kim Jong-gyu also made a good performance overcoming the sluggishness of this season. Based on his height advantage, he attacked under Carrot’s goal. He showed perfect performance in karate.

After the game, Doo Kyung-min said, “There are many good players in the DB. There are players like (Kim) Jong-gyu and (Kang) Sang-jae. ) I didn’t lose because Hernandez was blocked.”

As Doo Kyung-min said, DB players have one shot. Doo Kyung-min – Lee Seon Albano (185cm, G) – Besides Hernandez, he has the ability to score points. 

And Choi Seung-wook and Kim Jong-gyu proved it through the game that day. Their performance is essential for the leap of DB.
