Ginseng Pilseung Lineup, Byun Jun-hyung and Park Ji-hoon
Byun Jun-hyung and Park Ji-hoon dominated the game.
Even in difficult situations, KCC, with their fighting spirit, fought fiercely from beginning to end, but in the end, they could not control Byun Jun-hyung and Park Ji-hoon. Byun Jun-hyung (26 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists) and Park Ji-hoon (20 points, 5 rebounds) of KGC scored 20+ points and combined for 46 points.
In the midst of their performance, Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation won 88-79 in a match against Jeonju KCC Egis in the 5th round of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 17th. KGC, which became 33-11, firmly maintained its sole lead.
With 10 consecutive wins, he set a record for most consecutive wins since the team was founded. Including the days of SBS, the predecessor, KGC’s 10-game winning streak is 6566 days (17 years, 11 months, 22 days).
Both Park Ji-hoon and Byun Jun-hyeong were pleased with the team’s most consecutive wins.
Park Ji-hoon said, “We won 10 consecutive wins in 20 days. All of our team members seem to be great. It’s really good that it’s the club’s first 10-game winning streak. I’m just grateful that the club pays a lot of attention these days.” Byun Jun-hyung also expressed his impressions of the winning streak, saying, “The atmosphere of the team is very good, and we seem to be doing well.
KGC is having fun using Byun Jun-hyung and Park Ji-hoon ‘independently and together’ this season. Byun Jun-hyung starts the game and Park Ji-hoon plays as a backup, but in the match, the two play together and take responsibility for victory.
Kim Sang-sik, KGC coach, said, “If we continue to play together from the beginning, there may be a physical burden, so we use them alternately and then use them together in the match.”
The synergistic effect when running together is certainly significant.
Park Ji-hoon explained, “When we play together, the team speed seems to increase, and we can take turns leading or attacking each other. I think there are many things that can be derived. It feels a little easier to solve the game.”
Byun Jun-hyung also mentioned strengths in defense.
He said, “If (Park) Ji-hoon hyung sees No. 1, I can focus more on scoring as I go to No. 2, and I can lessen the physical burden. Also, my defense gets stronger. “As we stand up, our defense gets stronger, and we don’t give the opponent a lot of easy shots. It seems to be good to connect with a quick break after rebounding.”
In today’s game, when Byun Jun-hyung hit the outside by hitting 5 3-pointers, Park Ji-hoon keenly penetrated the inner space and harassed KCC’s defense without rest. The enemy manager, coach Jeon Chang-jin, also looked back on the defeat, saying, “I lost to Byun Jun-hyung and Park Ji-hoon.” 먹튀검증
While Byun Jun-hyung puts up defense and boldly tries to break through, Park Ji-hoon instantly digs a gap in the defense and puts up a drive-in quickly and flexibly.
Park Ji-hoon said, “Now I feel like I can see the road a little bit. If I look slightly different, the gazes of the defenders follow me, but I’m trying to use that thing these days. I seem to be able to see these situations as I have more time than before.”
In addition, he added, “Anyway, since I played as a substitute, I am physically better than the opponent. So there are things that I can play more comfortably in the 4th quarter than the opponent.”
Byun Jun-hyeong said, “The team atmosphere is so good. I talk a lot with the hyungs, as well as with the coaches and coaches, and try to fix things that don’t work. Since the atmosphere is so good, the coach also says that we can play basketball and encourages us that we are doing well. There are some parts, some parts that don’t go well, but I won’t say it here. If we just focus, we can fix it and it will get better,” he laughed.
