- Jeong Hee-jae: 8 minutes and 16 seconds, 5 points, 3 rebounds (attack 1), 2 assists strength is also important. Lee Jae-do and Marey have to play that role well,” he said, emphasizing the role of the central resource.
In particular, it is important that Asem Marey (202cm, C) does a good fight under the goal. It is because LG domestic players can move stably when Marey has the upper hand in the paint zone fight.
Marey started with defense and rebounding. Specifically, defense. Even if he went outside the 3-point line, he returned to the paint zone and blocked KGC Ginseng Corporation’s goal. He prevented KGC Ginseng Corp.’s easy scoring with a wide range of defense.
Marey also dominated the paint zone on offense. He had the upper hand in a face-to-face match with Omari Spellman (203cm, F). Then, the outskirts of domestic resources such as Yoon Won-sang (180cm, G) and Jung Hee-jae (196cm, F) burst. Harmony was achieved between the bottom of the goal and the outside. This led to LG’s first quarter advantage.

LG called all of the starting lineup (Lee Jae-do, Yoon Won-sang, Jeong In-deok, Jeong Hee-jae, and Asem Marey) to the bench 1 minute and 44 seconds before the end of the first quarter. Justin Gutang (188cm, F) – Lee Kwan-hee (191cm, G) – Lim Dong-seop (198cm, F) – Kim Jun-il (200cm, C) – Dante Cunningham (203cm, F) were put into the court.
The replaced member signaled the start of the second quarter. Lee Kwan-hee’s concentration was great. He made a 3-point shot and a jumper with his unique quick shooting timing and bold attempts, and also made a basket count by inducing a foul after a breakthrough move. After the start of the third quarter, he scored 11 points in 5 minutes.
However, Lee Kwan-hee’s efficiency gradually declined. Asem Marey, a foreign player with the first option, fell into foul trouble. Someone was needed to replace Lee Kwan-hee and Marey.
LG coach Cho Sang-hyun put Cunningham and Kim Jun-il back on the court. Cunningham lived up to the expectations of the bench. He cleverly blocked the spellman and showed off a sophisticated jumper in front of the 3-point line. He was responsible for scoring in the second half of the second quarter. It meant a lot. This is because Cunningham’s performance in the second half of the second quarter widened the gap between LG and KGC Ginseng Corporation.
