What is to come has come. The two expected strong teams face each other on the best stage. Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, which ranks first in the professional basketball regular league, and Seoul SK, the ‘defending champion’, will face off in the championship match again this year.
The 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship Match (7 matches, 4 wins) opens with a confrontation between KGC and SK at the Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 25th. The two teams that met in the championship match last season met again. It is the first time in 18 years that the same team faces two consecutive years in the championship match, and it is the third time after Hyundai and Kia in 1998 and 1999 and KCC and TG Sambo in 2004 and 2005.
Last season, SK ranked 1st in the regular league and KGC, which was in 3rd place, defeated 2nd place Suwon KT in the semifinal playoffs to advance to the championship match. SK won with 4 wins and 1 loss and won the combined championship.
It’s the exact opposite this season. KGC went straight to the quarterfinals as the 1st place in the regular league, beating Goyang Carrot with 3 wins and 1 loss, and embarked on a combined championship challenge. After defeating him by all means, he challenged KGC.
KGC dominated the regular league without dropping from first place even once this season, despite the power leaks that Seong-hyeon Jeon (Carrot) left. Accurate outside shots led by foreign player Omari Spellman were super strong under the goal, guarded by veteran Oh Se-geun.
SK has no Choi Jun-yong. Last season’s regular league MVP Choi Jun-yong led the tall forward line, which was the key driving force behind SK’s being called the strongest. This season, Choi Jun-yong failed to recover after being ruled out due to a heel injury at the end of the regular season. I can’t even get to the championship game. However, SK continued to win even without Choi Jun-yong. Since March, they have not lost a single game and have won 15 consecutive wins, including 9 wins in the regular league and 6 wins in the playoffs. Kim Seon-hyung and Jameel Warney have a strong one-two punch.
There is another return match within the return match between the two strong teams. It is a confrontation between Kim Seon-hyeong (SK) and Byun Jun-hyeong (KGC), the main scorers of the team. The two are senior and junior guards representing the league, and they competed fiercely for the MVP award in the regular league this season. The championship was won by KGC, but the MVP was taken by Kim Seon-hyung of SK, the 3rd place team. Kim Seon-hyung was also the MVP of last season’s championship game. In this championship, we will compete again with Byun Jun-hyung after the regular league. 토토사이트
Byun Jun-hyung recorded an average of 14.1 points and 5 assists in the regular league, and he continued to play an active role with 15.3 points and 4.5 assists in 4 playoff games in the semifinals. Kim Seon-hyung recorded 16.3 points and 6.8 assists in the regular season, and showed tireless performance with 15.2 points and 7.5 assists in 6 playoff games in the 6th and 4th rounds. “It is a new challenge to rise from third place and win. It feels good,” he said with confidence.
