Jamil Warney was dominant again, and coach Hee-Cheol Jeon was pleased with his performance. But he also had some words of advice.
Head coach Hee-chul Jeon’s Seoul SK defeated the Goyang Sono 90-79 on Thursday at Goyang Sono Arena in their 2023-2024 Korean Basketball Association regular season opener. SK has won its opening three games in a row to move into sole possession of first place.
Warney’s explosiveness was on full display against Sono. Warney finished with 30 points, 17 rebounds, and five assists, holding off a late charge from Sono led by Jeon Sung-hyun (27 points, six 3-pointers, two rebounds). His three-game averages are 34 points, 13.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 steals. He spearheaded SK’s opening three-game winning streak.
“I’m satisfied with the overall defense,” said head coach Jeon Hee-cheol, who praised his players for putting together the three-game winning streak. However, he did have some words of advice for Warney, who often took unnecessary shots to score more points.짱구카지노
It’s not that we didn’t defend as promised, but Jeon Sung-hyun was too good. I am satisfied with the overall defense. (Oh) Se-geun did what we asked him to do. We wanted to drive inside and force him to shoot a lot of two-pointers, and we wanted him to shoot under 35% from three, so it worked out. We were prepared to allow Lee to shoot two-pointers. The disappointing part was the second quarter. I rested Warney, who said his thigh was bothering him. In fact, I wanted to use Warney more because of his performance in the first quarter.
Did Warney make a lot of unnecessary attacks on the opponent’s traps?
I watched more of the game and tried to deal with it, but the timing was a little late. He was stubborn when a Korean player blocked him. I know Warney when I see him. I threw three or four without thinking, and I told him to do it straight.
On utilizing Heo Il-yong since Ahn Young-joon’s return
(A) Young-joon will play as the main number two, (H) Il-young is the best option at number three, and (O) Jae-hyun will play more of a sixth man role. Young-joon’s defense isn’t bad, so he can play anywhere from 1 to 4. If we played today, Young Jun would guard Lee Jung-hyun and (Kim) Sun-hyung would guard Jeon Sung-hyun. I told Gomez before the game that he might not be able to play much. Of course, Jae-hyun played good defense. So did his three-point shooting (3/8).
Oh Jae-hyun’s performance
Jae-hyun Oh played the 1 in the KBL Cup, but his role will change. The plan is to gradually hand over the 1 role to Gomez. Jae-hyun’s shot off the dribble is weak. On the other hand, he likes the right corner. He’s been beaten there a lot, so he knows it well.
