“I’m not worried about the game today (16th), but I’m worried about how Lee Woo-seok will be, and taking action to change (immediately after the injury) seems like a bad situation.”
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis defeated Daegu Korea Gas Corporation 84-77 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball away game held at the Daegu Gymnasium on the 26th. Hyundai Mobis recorded 25 wins and 17 losses, narrowing the gap with second place Changwon LG to two games.
Hyundai Mobis, which always beat KOGAS, pushed ahead from the beginning of the game. It seemed that they would win easily by leading 26-10 at the end of the first quarter. However, since then, mistakes have been pouring out. At the beginning of the second quarter, Lee Woo-seok retired to the bench due to an ankle injury. Hyundai Mobis, which was even reversed, changed the flow again from the 3rd quarter.
In the midst of a close game, they seemed to be approaching the victory easily by scoring 11 points in a row in the middle of the fourth quarter, but were chased by 81-77 due to another error. At this time, Kim Tae-wan succeeded in a wedge-driven 3-point shot and approached the victory.
Hyundai Mobis coach Cho Dong-hyun said after winning that day, “It was a tough game because we went back and forth in the fight against the flow. In the second half, the players brought the flow that gave way to the first half. I am satisfied with the result by bringing the flow to the defense, but it is regrettable that I could not finish it quickly in the first quarter.”
Lee Woo-seok was injured with 7 minutes and 20 seconds left in the second quarter.
Director Jo Dong-hyun said, “You have to go to the hospital and get tested. He needs to confirm soon, and the next game (to play) won’t be easy. He said, “You have to go to Seoul and get tested to find out how much of an injury it is.”
Shin Min-seok scored 10 points, including a score that changed the flow in the 3rd quarter, and Kim Tae-wan (8 points, 2 3-point shots) succeeded in a 3-point shot that put a wedge in the game. 메이저놀이터
Director Cho Dong-hyun said, “As Lee Woo-seok was injured, an opportunity went to Shin Min-seok and he regained his confidence. He told me to go with the team for the basics, and he filled in the missing parts of Woo-seok well. I was not in my condition because Avarientos was in a hurry, but Kim Tae-wan did well in defense,” he praised the two players.
I passed the flow because of a mistake, and even at the last moment I fell into a crisis because of a mistake. Hyundai Mobis recorded 15 mistakes that day.
Manager Cho Dong-hyun said, “I am in a hurry because I am a young player. In the first quarter, he lost his rebound and collapsed in the flow fight due to an error. I gave 49 points in the first half. After the first half, I reprimanded him a lot. We talked about attitude,” he said. You can’t win if you don’t defend. Today is a victory for the defense.”
Ronjay Avarientos was sluggish.
Manager Cho Dong-hyun said, “Avarientos is trying to make up for the lack of defense with a shot. You can’t do that. After making a defensive mistake, he throws a shot on offense. It’s a pity,” he said. “It explains it enough. It will get better because I sympathize with the need to defend.”
Lastly, coach Dong-hyun Cho said, “I am not worried about today’s game, but I am worried about how Woo-seok will be, and taking action to ask for a change (right after the injury) seems to be a bad situation. He is a good player with a sense of purpose and passion. The reason why he sent a replacement sign is that he has a bad feeling,” worried Lee Woo-seok.
