I couldn’t get over the last hurdle.
Professional basketball LG lost 89-91 in the final match of Group B of the 2023 MG Saemaeul Geumgo KBL Cup against KCC held at Wolmyeong Gymnasium in Gunsan on the 13th. LG, which had won against Korea Gas Corporation, lost to KCC and failed to advance to the semifinals.
Lee Kwan-hee’s hard work stood out. He played 25 minutes and 8 seconds that day, scoring 21 points, 2 rebounds, and 5 3-point shots. Lee Kwan-hee, who remained scoreless until the third quarter, scored 21 points in the fourth quarter and chased KCC to its chin.
On this day, LG was unilaterally defeated by KCC’s attack led by Alize Johnson, Choi Jun-yong, and Heo Woong. There was no significant counterattack until the first half and they lost the lead. It was not easy to achieve a turnaround with Heo Woong’s 3-point shot sparking fire. Assem Marey and Dante Cunningham struggled in the matchup.
It was Lee Kwan-hee who brought about a reversal in LG, which had remained silent. Lee Kwan-hee hit a series of 3-point shots from the corner. Lee Seung-woo’s support fire continued, laying the foundation for the chase. However, it was disappointing that the breakthrough at the end of the game overlooked the rim. Lee Kwan-hee even hit a 3-pointer just before the end of the game, but there was not enough time left.
