Professional basketball Goyang Carrot defeated Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, which was ranked No.
Carrot won 89-75 with the explosive scoring power of second-year guard Lee Jung-hyun in the second leg of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball semifinal playoff (Best of 5) with Ginseng Corporation held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 15th.
Carrot, who lost 43-99 in the first game on the 13th, the highest difference of 56 points in a game throughout the regular league and playoffs since the launch of professional basketball, counterattacked as if by magic.
Lee Jung-Hyun stood at the center of the victory, sweeping 32 points, including 4 3-pointers. And the contribution of Kim Jin-yu, who was breathing by his side, was great.
Kim Jin-yu recorded 2 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals in 15 minutes and 33 seconds. The influence that goes unnoticed by the numbers was enormous.
She puts strong pressure on the opposing guard and actively participates in rebounding. Her hustle play, which blows her body, is also not missing. Ginseng Corporation committed 19 turnovers under pressure.
Kim Jin-yu said, “I lost so helplessly in the first game, but it’s very good to win today. All the players were very willing to do it.”
He added, “Honestly, in the first game, everyone had a hard time. I couldn’t run properly because my legs didn’t move.”
Carrot played the playoffs against Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan until the final 5th game and advanced to the semifinals. The physical strength of the key players was heavy.
Kim Jin-yu, who does a lot of dirty work, was even more so. There are many scenes where she bumps into opponents and falls on the court, so there are many small and large bruises on her body.
Kim Jin-yu, who is 188 cm tall, has the advantage of being active, but is evaluated as not being the type with high technical perfection. After graduating from Konkuk University, he joined Goyang Orion (currently Carrot) with the 10th pick in the first round of the 2016 rookie draft and grew into a defensive guard.
Since her debut in the 2016-2017 season, her regular league playing time (17 minutes and 52 seconds) this season is the longest. Except for the 2017-2018 season (15 minutes and 57 seconds), he is a player who has never played more than 10 minutes on average in the regular league. 안전놀이터
Kim Jin-yu said, “When I first met the coach, he said, ‘If you want to play, you basically have to be active in defense and rebounding.’ did.
Kim Jin-yu fell hard on the court while trying to get a rebound that day as well, and was unable to get up for a while. Manager Kim Seung-gi said, “I played so hard that I couldn’t say anything. I was in tears watching the game.”
Kim Jin-yu said, “It’s not an injury. It’s just a slight swelling of the back muscles. If we win the loose ball, the team atmosphere will rise, so I just threw myself into it without thinking about anything else.” He stroked his hair and said, ‘Good job.’ It was noisy, but I could hear it.”
He said, “I am grateful that I, who could not play for an average of 10 minutes, play on such a big stage. I am very grateful to the coaches and coaches who gave me the opportunity.” We will do our best in the remaining matches. Even if my bones are broken, I will continue to fly.”
The 3rd match between Carrot and Ginseng Corporation will be held on the 17th at 7pm at the Goyang Gymnasium.
