KGC coach Kim Sang-shik, who participated in EASL, “A combination of Monroe, Spellman, and Oh Se-geun is possible”
Anyang KGC will participate in the 2023 East Asian Super League (EASL) Super Week (March 1-5, Japan). Seoul SK and KGC, who played the championship game in the 2021-2022 season, will represent KBL and participate토토사이트. KGC boasts solid power, such as running to the top with 34 wins and 12 losses in the ‘2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball’ regular league. Attention is focusing on whether they will be able to achieve good results in confrontations with professional teams representing East Asia, such as Japan, Taiwan, and the Philippines.
Compared to KBL, this tournament has a different way to use players. Unlike KBL, which allows only one foreign player to play throughout the first to fourth quarters, in EASL, two players can step on the court at the same time. KGC and SK must prepare for changes in offense and defense due to the simultaneous participation of two foreign players. In that respect, KGC, which has Omari Spellman (26, 203 cm), who has a high proportion of outside play, has a wider range of choices.
KGC coach Kim Sang-sik (55) said before leaving the country on the morning of the 27th, “I have never trained with two foreign players at the same time. He intends to train briefly ahead of the group stage starting on March 1st. I don’t think we need to make any changes in the big picture of the team’s tactics.” “Since Spellman has a tendency to play outside, we are thinking about using all three, including Daryl Monroe and Oh Se-geun. If Spellman moves from the outskirts, I don’t think there will be a problem with space even if three big players play at the same time.”
In the KBL game, KGC had Spellman play the outside play when attacking, but play the opponent’s big man when defending. The proportion of Spellman and Oh Se-geun (36 200 cm) was absolute. However, in EASL, Monroe (37, 196.6cm) is likely to significantly increase his playing time. It doesn’t seem to be a big problem even with 3 people playing together. Oh Se-geun and Monroe are resources capable of outside shooting and ball handling. Director Kim’s idea is to bring out the maximum power in the air and defense through this.
Manager Kim said, “Basically, we will keep the team color. Basketball continues with a quick turnaround of offense and defense following strong defense and all five players can attack the outskirts. I analyzed the teams participating in EASL, but their strength was formidable. We will do our best to achieve good results in EASL through KGC’s unique color.”
