“I want you to know the value of one rebound.”

Coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “It’s very unfortunate. I want to say thank you to the players who did their best, but I hope they learn a lesson. It was a game that I could definitely catch and go, but I lacked concentration. I want the players to know the value of a single rebound. I thought I was lacking a lot, but I felt that I had more to do for this team in the future,” he said after the match. 안전놀이터

With 5 minutes and 57 seconds remaining in the game, LG faced a crisis as Lee Jae-do was sent off for 5 fouls and Lee Kwan-hee left the court with an injury, but did not let go of the pursuit until the end.

Coach Cho said, “(Lee) Jae-do came out and gave (Justin) Gutang the role of ball handler. It would have been easier to attack if he had a quick pass, but it’s a pity that he came out after seeing all his own. This has to be changed through practice. I did well, but it’s a rebound fight after all,” he explained about the situation at the time.

On the other hand, Regarding Reggie Perry, who made his second appearance on the day, “I keep ordering aggressive parts, but today there was also something that drew the ball. There were many cases where I ended up with a one-on-one after rebounding. I scored well, but I value defense, but the help defense and positioning are still a little lacking.” 

Lastly, coach Cho said, “The game is not over, so I will prepare well for the Seoul game,” and reaffirmed his determination for the third game to be held at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 18th.
