Kim Ji-wan (187cm, G) scored double digits in 5 games.
Jeonju KCC won 89-77 against Suwon KT in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season held at Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 20th.
Kim Ji-wan helped the team win with 11 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists in the game that day. The reason Kim Ji-Wan’s performance is welcome is that Kim Ji-Wan has scored no goals in all of his recent 3 games.
Kim Ji-wan, who we met after the game, said, “It feels good to win. In matches with KT, he was always pushed back on the rebound. So he said to focus on rebounding before the game, but I think we won because we all worked hard on rebounds and the prepared defense was good.”
Kim Ji-wan took on a different role at the same time as Heo Woong (185cm, G) joined this season. Before that, his role was focused on scoring, but this season he is involved not only in scoring but also in assembling matches. But I still have regrets. Kim Ji-wan also said, “After moving to KCC, I mainly watched number 2. But lately, he has a sense of responsibility that he has to do well in areas such as reading. He tries to both lead and score, so it doesn’t seem to work out. He expressed regret, saying, “I want to help the team by making up for it quickly.”
“Our team uses a lot of small lineups. The advantage is that it is faster than the opponent. There is a problem with height. That’s why I always emphasize rebounding before a game. He emphasized rebound and quick attack, saying, “You have to make a quick attack after a successful defensive rebound without losing the offensive rebound to the opponent.”
Kim Ji-wan is showing ups and downs this season. In particular, he has also gone scoreless in his last three matches. However, on this day, it has been a long time since I scored a double-digit score. In an interview after the match, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “Still, (Kim) Ji-wan is good at finding a good shot.”
Kim Ji-wan also said, “My weakness has always been ups and downs. And lately, it seems that my heart has been more urgent. He should have been helpful in other areas when the attack was not working out, but he was unbalanced at the thought of shooting. Today, I said to focus on defense and put in an easy shot, but I think that worked well.” 토토사이트
“If the shot doesn’t go in, confidence will inevitably fall. But basketball isn’t just about shooting. You can beat your opponent through other parts. So I’m trying to focus more on other parts. If all players do, the team will become stronger,” he concluded the interview.
