Carrot suffered an unfortunate defeat at the end of a great match.
The Goyang Carrot Jumpers lost 80-82 in a match against the Seoul SK Knights in the 4th round of the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Regular League held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 23rd.
It was the best match during the Lunar New Year holidays. In front of 4,837 spectators, the players from both teams engaged in a fierce battle with the outcome unknown until the very end.
Carrot pressed SK until the end of the game, centered on Jeon Seong-hyun and Didric Lawson, but suffered a disappointing defeat. It was painful that Didric Lawson’s shot missed in the last attack aimed at a comeback. It was also regrettable that Jeon Seong-hyun, the best shooter in the league, missed consecutive free throws at an important moment.
Manager Kim Seung-gi said, “The players did well until the end. I worked hard to live and die in front of a large crowd. I am satisfied with that. If one more burst, I could win, but I lacked strength. Still, I am grateful to them for sticking with me until the very end,” he praised the players.
He added, “It’s a very good game. It’s really unfortunate. I can’t force the players to put in and put pressure on them. It’s too bad. I didn’t know how the situation would change if I caught a game like today, but it’s a pity.”
Carrot has a lot of close matches this season. As such, there are many regrettable losses in the seesaw game. 안전놀이터
Manager Kim said, “There are many cases where we lose by one or two points this year. If we caught half of that, we would have gone up. I’m proud of it. I have faith that next year will be better. It’s a pity, but what can I do?”
Finally, Director Kim left the interview room after expressing regret, saying, “I don’t think I will be able to sleep for another five days.”
