In the third quarter, it collapsed and was completely defeated. DB’s hope for the playoffs is slowly fading.
Wonju DB, led by acting manager Kim Joo-seong, lost 64-84 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball regular league away game against Jeonju KCC held at Jeonju Gymnasium on the 11th. 8th place DB lost two consecutive losses, and the ride with 6th place KCC스포츠토토, which is the playoff cutoff, took 3.5 games.
DB played a last-minute chase in the second quarter and finished the first half with 34-40, but collapsed rapidly in the third quarter. Due to poor rebounds (7-14), 4 quick attacks were allowed, while DB’s quick attacks were nil. Only one out of eight 3-pointers broke the rim. DB, who was pushed to 7-22 in the 3rd quarter score, Albano fired two 3-pointers in the 4th quarter, but it was not enough to turn the tide.
DB only scored double digits with Dijon Davis (16 points, 3 rebounds), Ethan Albano (13 points, 3 3 points, 7 assists), and Lenard Freeman (11 points, 12 rebounds). Kang Sang-jae (7 rebounds) stayed scoreless for the second time this season as all 7 field goals missed the rim.
Acting coach Kim Joo-seong said, “We played a double team overall, but the rotation process of players was not good. During the triple post, I used zone defense, but I couldn’t gain an advantage. No 3-point shot. After a 20-point lead, Albano’s shot went in. He was able to take advantage of the mismatch under the goal, but it is regrettable that he could not.”
