“(Irregular defense) has been around for a long time. I also wrote it for a while at KT.”
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis defeated Changwon LG 82-75 in the 2022-2023 STK A-Dot Professional Basketball home game held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 24th. Hyundai Mobis, which frustrated LG’s winning streak, recorded 20 wins and 14 losses, catching up with second place LG (20 wins and 13 losses) by half a game.
Hyundai Mobis tied LG’s points and scored consecutively from about 4 minutes into the 2nd quarter, which was continuing a close game, and ran away 47-34 to take the lead. After that, when LG chased it, it repeated running away.
Hyundai Mobis was chased by 57-55 by consecutive 3-pointers in the middle of the 3rd quarter, but ran away with 12 points in a row to 69-55.
At the beginning of the fourth quarter, he made a series of mistakes and gave an excuse to pursue. The score gap narrowed to 73-66. At this time, Hyundai Mobis ran away 80-69 thanks to Gage Prim’s goal and Seo Myung-jin’s wedge 3-point shot, virtually deciding the game. 먹튀검증
Hyundai Mobis coach Cho Dong-hyun said, “It was a tough game during the holiday season, but we won three consecutive matches. Personally, I had a good finish, but I don’t know why I keep thinking of sad things,” he said. “The concentration in the third and fourth quarters is unfortunate. Anyway, I asked them to concentrate while taking various defenses prepared, but when it goes well, they show concentration, but when the score gap widens, regrets came out from the small part (low concentration).”
LG coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “I couldn’t catch the opponent’s irregular defense in the 1st and 2nd quarters.”
Director Cho Dong-hyun said, “(Irregular defense) has been around for a long time. He also wrote briefly at KT. It’s not regional defense. I’ve been using it as a variation since last season, but I don’t know how effective it is or which team it fits, but I used it today (24th). LG was slow to adapt in the beginning, so we took the lead.”
In the second half, when asked about the reason for the two-on-two play centered on Lee Woo-seok, coach Dong-hyun Cho said, “It is an opponent match-up. Depending on the opponent matchup, I ordered a two-man game against a player (Lim Dong-seop) whose defense was weaker than the post attack. If the post attack is also a weakness, I will attack the weakness, but the two-man game connection has not been completed, but I trained during the break. Who takes the two-man game depends on where the opponent’s defense is weak. This time, I ordered a lot from Lee Woo-seok.”
Seo Myung-jin has been aggressively attacking recently.
Director Cho Dong-hyun said, “When you do well, you do well if you do it with initiative. The talent you have is good, but it’s a matter of activeness. Sometimes too passive. Sometimes I don’t even see the rim. He told me to shoot 10 shots and come out because it is okay to lose the game. Seo Myung-jin instills confidence to be positive mentally rather than technically.”
When Asem Marey attacked from under the goal, he responded with a double team and made an error.
Manager Cho Dong-hyun said, “Depending on the game situation, we may or may not go to the trap. He can play a two-point game or a three-point game. (Prim) I also thought of a trap defense going from the bottom because a one-on-one defense could be too much. The players diligently moved the trap defense from the two count or the trap defense from the sagging,” he said. “Marey’s ability to score from the post is the best. It is also a concern in the next game with LG. I will choose a different method depending on the situation, whether to block the outskirts or not to trap.”
