I hope the players will have a little more grit. I am no longer young.” Head coach Cho Dong-hyun, who lost two games in a row, emphasized tenacity to the players.
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, led by coach Dong-hyun Cho, lost 90-94 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league home game against Wonju DB held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 7th. Thanks to Lee Woo-seok’s mid-range shot right before the end of the 4th quarter, we went into overtime dramatically, but we swallowed our regrets due to lack of back heart.
Hyundai Mobis, which was once behind by 17 points in the second quarter, started a fierce chase with Lee Woo-seok (23 points, 3 3-point shots, 6 rebounds and 6 assists) and Ronjay Avarientos (21 points, 7 3-point shots, 2 rebounds and 5 assists). unfolded Gage Prim (19 points, 14 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals) recorded a double-double. However, he failed to block Dewan Hernandez in overtime, ending his two-game winning streak against DB.
Manager Cho Dong-hyun said 안전놀이터, “We played a good game that went into overtime, but we lost. I am sorry to the home fans who visited the home game on the weekend after a long time. I hope the younger players will have a little more fighting spirit. If you run away early in the game, you’ll have a tough game from the start. Avarientos released the attack (with a 3-point shot), but it was not a good direction.”
Coach Dong-Hyun Cho continued, “It’s not that the players don’t know how to (resolve). It’s a matter of activeness. (Seo) Myung-jin wants to do it with more confidence. 5 years pro. Now is not the age to be young. Myeong-jin is too passive compared to what she has. He added, “I want him to be proactive from the physical fight.”
Meanwhile, while Hyundai Mobis attempted 39 three-pointers, DB only threw 14, less than half. In particular, I tried only two until the first half. It was the result of putting weight behind the goal throughout the offense and defense, such as steadily operating a big lineup with Kim Jong-gyu, Kang Sang-jae, and Choi Seung-wook at the same time.
Coach Dong-Hyun Cho also said, “The reason why there were many attempts at 3-point shots was because DB played a narrow defense. I also told the players that there would be many chances if the tempo of handling the ball to the outskirts was fast. Whether the shot goes in or not is the part that players have to overcome,” he said.
