A quick attack through a steel also came out and neutralized KCC. In response, KCC used a large number of bench members in a situation where key players such as Heo Woong (185cm, G) and Lee Seung-hyun (197cm, F) were missing, and La Gun-ah (199cm, C) showed a heavy presence in the post and won the match 41-40. went on

At one point in the 4th quarter, KT took a big lead, 74-56, and eventually succeeded in escaping the losing streak at home.

Seungjang KT coach Seo Dong-cheol said, “It was an important game today, and I am fortunate to be able to catch KCC at home. Both me and the players came out with the mindset of not missing today’s game, and it went well. The attack today is not very satisfying, but the defense went as planned. Minimize opponent’s attack. It’s a pity that I gave Laguna too many goals. Laguna did better than we did. He was strong on the rebound. Our foreign player and (Ha) Yoongi are not low in height, but there is something missing. I want to praise La Gun-ah,” he said of his impressions of the game.
Regarding the competition for the 6th round, coach Seo said, “I think we have to go up unconditionally. How much more I win is not at my will. I’m going through a lot of ups and downs. You have to do your best in each game and accept the result. Going to the playoffs is something no team can afford. We have to do our best to win every game,” he concluded the interview.
On the other hand, KCC played a big role with 28 points and 16 rebounds in the absence of key players, but it collapsed from the 3rd quarter as the sixth men revealed problems in the sense of the game. KCC, which has to use the Sixth Man for the time being, has to overcome its upcoming schedule.
KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin, the loser, said, “At the end of the second quarter, we made a mistake and allowed a turnaround. The flow continued. I played this combination for the first time this season and it was better than I thought. I thought that the players who couldn’t play (in the game) should develop and practice while playing. Kidney failure is the tough part. Teams like KT have difficult parts, but we have to overcome them.”
