Again, SK had fun with the irregular lineup, this time Oh Jae-hyun flew
Following Game 4, Seoul SK came out with an irregular lineup and won the victory. The key to victory was the performance of Oh Jae-hyun, who led the first quarter attack in the absence of the two-headed coach Kim Seon-hyung and Jameel Warney.
SK defeated Anyang KGC 66-60 in Game 5 of the 2022-23 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 3rd.
As a result, SK, which took a lead in the series with 3 wins and 2 losses, has only one win left to win.
On the other hand, KGC, which was leading with 2 wins and 1 loss, was unable to overcome SK’s irregular lineup and fell into two consecutive losses, and was driven to the brink of being eliminated even if it lost only one game.
In the 4th game, SK coach Jeon Hee-chul, who had fun by excluding Kim Seon-hyung and Jameel Warney from the starting lineup, started the game again with an irregular lineup. On this day, excluding Kim Seon-hyeong and Warney, Leon Williams, Heo Il-young, Choi Boo-kyung, Choi Seong-won, and Oh Jae-hyun started.
Coach Jeon said, “(Kim) Seon-hyung’s stamina is needed to try a quick attack when we have the right to attack, but to save stamina, we decided to remove it from the starting lineup at the beginning of the game. explained the background.
For the irregular lineup to succeed, it was important that the players who replaced the starting lineup endured well. If Choi Bu-kyung and Choi Seong-won performed the role in the 4th game, Oh Jae-hyun flew this time.
Oh Jae-hyun was responsible for SK’s offense, scoring 10 points, including two 3-pointers, in the first quarter alone. Even without Warney and Kim Seon-hyung, it was thanks to Oh Jae-hyun’s performance that SK did not fall behind KGC and stood up against it.
Oh Jae-hyun’s performance peaked at the end of the 4th quarter, when a tight battle continued. Shortly before the end of the game, SK led narrowly by 62-60, and KGC Byun Jun-hyung and Lands Abando’s outside shots missed the rim in succession and took the right to attack.
Seonhyung Kim, who owned the ball, found Oh Jae-hyun standing in the corner in a no-mark state and quickly passed it, and Oh Jae-hyun’s three-point shot broke the rim. It was a decisive goal that decided the game. Coach Jeon Hee-chul, who was watching the game nervously, cheered with his arms raised when Oh Jae-hyun’s shot went in.
After the match, former coach Jeon said, “(Oh) Jae-hyeon did a really good job. More than anything, the shot exploded and I feel so good. A situation came out. The moment the shot went in, I was moved. The keyword for today’s game was Oh Jae-hyun’s 3-point shot,” he praised.
Oh Jae-hyun laughed, saying,ㅋㅋㅋ벳 “I was always sorry that I didn’t seem to be helpful to the team at important moments. The coach and coaches worked hard to revive my spirit, and the hyungs gave me their trust, and I’m really happy to be able to repay it.”
In SK, there is a ‘victory formula’ that says Oh Jae-hyun wins a game with three 3-pointers. On this day, Jaehyun Oh also made three 3-point shots, and the game ended with SK winning.
Regarding this, Oh Jae-hyun said, “I first saw it as an article, and the next day it became an issue. I heard from my brothers, ‘Quickly make three 3-point shots in the first quarter.’ I’m glad I could,” he said.
