Ha Yoon-gi, KT’s variable? Now that’s a solid option!

The height of Ha Yoon-gi (204cm, C) was powerful.

Suwon KT defeated Daegu Korea Gas Corporation 76-74 in the regular 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball league held at the Daegu Indoor Gymnasium on the 4th. With 17 wins and 21 losses, he ranked 6th alone. There is no game difference with Jeonju KCC (16-20), which is in 7th place.

KT underwent major changes after the end of the 2021-2022 season. Heo Hoon (180cm, G), the team’s ace and field commander, enlisted in the military. All foreign players who were with us in the 2021-2022 season have been replaced. More than half of the team’s strength has changed.

Still, KT has some outstanding domestic players. A typical example is Yang Hong-seok (195cm, F). Yang Hong-seok, who has the energy level and balanced offense and defense, should take over as the ace instead of Heo Hoon. In particular, KT has a lot of stake in the color change.

Yang Hong-seok’s power alone is impossible. Many players have to help Yang Hong-seok. The representative player is Ha Yoon-ki. Ha Yoon-gi is a big man with both physical and athletic abilities. He is also a resource who must be responsible for KT’s goal. During the off-season, mid-range jumpers were installed, raising expectations.

KT coach Seo Dong-cheol also said during the off-season, “I think we will show a much better performance than last season. It’s not just because he scores, he’s going to do what he has to do. I want to praise that point.”

However, Ha Yoon-gi suffered a knee injury during the cup tournament. His body had to be rebuilt. Ha Yun-ki raised his performance little by little, but KT’s performance did not. He played a lot of lethargic matches. He fell to the bottom.

However, after Jarrod Jones (201cm, F) and Lester Prosper (204cm, C) joined KT as new foreign players, Ha Yoon-gi’s performance also increased. Ha Yoon-gi’s height shines more. The reason why KT can compete for 6th place.

Ha Yoon-gi’s power is also important in the Korea Gas Corporation match. This is because Lee Dae-heon (196cm, F), one of Korea Gas Corporation’s key big men, left due to a rib injury. Ha Yoon-gi should attack the opponent’s paint zone more aggressively than before.

The starting point of Ha Yoon-gi’s attack was diverse. He pulled his matchup from the paint zone to outside the 3-point line. Around the 3-point line, he helped his teammates score with sharp passes, and easily scored with heights in the paint.

Despite being matched up with Murphy Holloway (196cm, F), Ha Yoon-gi did not avoid the screen and physical fights. Rather, he created an attacking path with a more aggressive hand-off play. He also created a second chance by participating in an offensive rebound.

At the beginning of the second quarter, he matched with Lester Prosper (208cm, C). A lineup that can enhance height. The defense and rebounding under the goal were good to some extent, but the offense was not. Ha Yoon-gi’s movement and energy level were also not the same in the first quarter. So the KT bench called Ha Yoon-gi to the bench 1 minute and 15 seconds after the start of the 2nd quarter.

However, after Ha Yoon-gi was missing, KT’s defense was shaken. It was pushed from 26-22 to 26-31. KT coach Seo Dong-cheol requested a final timeout in the first half due to the team’s rapid decline.

Ha Yoon-gi was put in again. After Ha Yoon-gi entered, KT’s court was balanced. In particular, the bottom of the goal has stabilized. As the bottom of the goal stabilized, KT’s attacks exploded in various areas, and KT finished the first half with 44-43.

Ha Yun-ki matched up with Jones again in the third quarter. Jones is a player with a wide attack range. That’s why Ha Yoon-gi’s control under the goal seemed easy. However, neither KT nor Ha Yoon-ki had the desired effect. I couldn’t get far from Korea Gas Corporation. 바카라사이트

Ha Yoon-gi did not enjoy direct effects. However, Jones enjoyed the ‘Ha Yoon-gi effect’. Ha Yoon-gi was in the paint zone, and Jones opened fire. Jones made a big success with 10 points, 2 rebounds (attack 1), 2 assists and 1 steal in the 3rd quarter alone, and KT took the lead 68-62.

Ha Yoon-gi returned to the court 1 minute 37 seconds after the start of the fourth quarter. He did a good job on the defensive rebound. And he ran diligently. Go all the way to the paint zone and fight for a spot. With just such a move, it put a burden on the defense behind the goal of Korea Gas Corporation.

He was also actively involved in offensive rebounding. Because of Ha Yoon-gi’s dedication, the KT players tried their shots with confidence. Also, when the team needed to score, Ha Yoon-gi scored with a post-up. The final score 3 minutes and 6 seconds before the end of the game was also made post-up. Because there was a clear option called Ha Yoon-ki, KT was able to place in 6th place.
