A bloody battle that continued to be reversed after reversal. It was KGC who had the last laugh.
Anyang KGC won 83-81 after repeated reversals in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league away game against Jeonju KCC held at Jeonju Gymnasium on the 31st.
1st place KGC continued its 2-game winning streak and extended its ride with 2nd place Changwon LG to 2.5 games. Omari Spellman (34 points, 6 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks) showed off her firepower, and Moon Seong-gon (12 points, 2 assists) supported the team. Byun Jun-hyung (11 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists) hit a dramatic winning shot 메이저놀이터 right before the end of the game.
On the other hand, 6th place KCC fell into a 5-game losing streak. While Ronze Hollis Jefferson (37 points, 11 rebounds, 2 steals) recorded the most individual points, Chang-Young Jeong (12 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals) recorded a double double, but swallowed regret due to lack of support.
KGC started the match well. Spellman made a big success with 12 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocked shots, including all 5 field goals in the 1st quarter, and overcame the baseline. KGC finished the first quarter 30-14 with a total of six 3-pointers, including Oh Se-geun, Byun Jun-hyeong, and Bae Byeong-jun, who also made 3-pointers.
KGC, who ran away by 18 points at the beginning of the second quarter, faced a crisis afterward. The failure to block Jefferson (15 points), which had a quick turnaround, provided an excuse for pursuit. KGC, which showed a 6-13 inferiority even in the rebound fight, ended the second quarter with a 45-43 lead.
KGC’s crisis continued until the third quarter. In the third quarter, the defense against Jefferson and Jeong Chang-young was not smooth, and even Oh Se-geun only scored 1 point. Spellman fired two 3-pointers, but KGC, who showed no bench points, ended the third quarter with a 58-61 lead.
However, it was KGC who had a strong back heart. Spellman and Jefferson held a showdown, and KGC, which continued the bloody battle exchanging come-from-behind turns, revived the pursuit again with Bae Byung-jun’s 3-point shot. KGC then regained a two-point lead by making an additional free throw following a quick break by Byun Jun-hyung in the offensive zone brought about by Jefferson’s mistake. Afterwards, KGC blocked KCC’s last attack and dramatically won two consecutive victories.
