acting coach Kim Joo-seong took the baton, Wonju DB won the first three games in a row.
Wonju DB won 71-65 in a home game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation on the 26th. DB went up one step from 8th to 7th, surpassing Suwon KT (14-19) with 15-20. Korea Gas Corporation Lee Dae-seong struggled with 21 스포츠토토 points, but lost and stayed in 9th place with 13 wins and 20 losses.
DB broke up with coach Lee Sang-beom, who led the team for 6 years on the 5th. It was sexual weakness and health problems. Coach Kim Joo-seong, who had been assisting coach Lee, took over as acting manager. Acting Kim Joo-seong is a legend of the team who played in DB for 16 seasons from the 2002-2003 season when he was a rookie when he was a player.
Acting Kim changed DB’s defense after he took the command tower. Even if he failed in attack, he pressed hard on defense and prevented the opponent from attacking properly. When the defense was good, the offense also spewed fire. DB, led by acting coach Kim Joo-seong, recorded 4 wins and 2 losses in 6 games.
The player who shines under Acting Kim is Kang Sang-jae, a ‘problem child’. Kang Sang-jae, who made his professional debut in 2016, was evaluated as a player to lead Korean basketball, but contrary to his expectations, his performance was mediocre. He gained attention only for his gargantuan quips. This season, along with head coach Lee Sang-beom, averaged 8.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists, and it was mediocre.
However, after being replaced by acting Kim, Kang Sang-jae leads the team with an average of 17 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 6 games, showing a completely different appearance. Kang Sang-jae, who led the victory with 18 points and 2 rebounds on this day, said, “Acting coach Joo-seong Kim always tells me to keep the center. As he said, he seems to be doing well because he is trying to make a lot of effort to connect the bottom of the goal and the outside.”
