Wonju DB 3 consecutive wins, PO competition goes to the end

Wonju DB, which was at the edge of a cliff, ignited the competition to advance to the playoffs (PO) by winning three consecutive victories.

DB, led by acting coach Kim Joo-seong, won 65-59 against Changwon LG in the regular league of the ‘2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball’ held at Changwon Gymnasium on the 19th. After Seoul Samsung (71-58 wins) and Goyang Carrot 온라인카지노(68-57 wins), they ran 3 consecutive wins.

On the 12th, he lost 66 to 84 against Hyundai Mobis in Ulsan and recorded 3 consecutive losses, and there was a 3 game difference with Suwon KT, who was 7th at the time, but after that, while DB won 3 consecutive wins, KT suffered 3 consecutive losses and the ride was erased. Now it is tied for 7th place with KT.

The bottom line for advancing to PO is 6th in the league, and currently DB is 3 games behind Jeonju KCC in 6th place. With only 4 games left in the regular league, it is virtually impossible to overturn. However, there is a possibility that the 7th place will advance to the PO this season. This is because if 5th place Carrot, who has confirmed entry into the PO, fails to pay the remaining 1 billion won in special dues to KBL by the 31st, the right to advance to the PO will be forfeited and the right to advance will be transferred to the 7th place. Carrot is in such a financial situation that it cannot even pay salaries for its current employees, so it is expected that it will be difficult to pay the remaining balance. There are ways for other companies to acquire Carrot, but even that doesn’t seem easy.

For DB, getting to 7th place has become very important. The upcoming two home games are expected to be a watershed. On the 23rd and 25th, DB will meet KT, the 7th place competitor, and Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, the 9th place, respectively, at the Wonju Gymnasium. If they win against KT, the first game of their 2 home matches, they will be ranked 7th alone. In order to succeed in advancing to the PO, this game must be won. We must also win against Korea Gas Corporation, a team lower than DB.

After the two home matches, only the match against Anyang KGC, which is ranked 1st in the league, and Seoul SK, which is 3rd in the league, remains. DB is greatly inferior to the two teams this season with 5 total losses, 1 win and 4 losses, respectively. Even these two games are away, so it seems very difficult to build a win. This is why the 2nd home game is important.

It seems that the motivation of the players has already been sufficient. DB tied all of the opposing team’s points to 50 points in the course of three consecutive wins. This is thanks to his fighting spirit in defense, rebounding, and loose ball fights.

Acting coach Kim Joo-seong also said after the match against Changwon LG, “We have to give everything in every game. “You have to pour 100% of what you prepared for the game,” said the players, saying, “The players are also working with that mindset.”
