Coach Kim Seung-gi plays against his former team.
Goyang Carrot will have the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Quarterfinal Playoff Game 1 against Anyang KGC at Anyang Gymnasium on the 13th.
Carrot, who succeeded in reversing the series against Hyundai Mobis and advanced to the semifinals, faces KGC, the regular league champion. KGC is also the parent team of Carrot’s head coach Kim Seung-gi and ace Jeon Seong-hyun. 스포츠토토
Director Kim Seung-gi said, “I didn’t expect to meet KGC and PO at first. However, as he played the season, he began to think that he might meet him. Actually, I said a lot, didn’t I? I think it will be a hit. It will be fun.”
Carrot, who finished the regular league in 5th place, recorded 2 wins and 4 losses against 1st place KGC this season. Excluding the confrontation in the 6th round after the outline of the rankings was revealed, they struggled with 1 win and 4 losses.
In response, coach Kim Seung-gi said, “There was no maintenance during the regular season. Still, the 2nd to 4th matches were good, right? In particular, they spit out victories in a situation where they almost won about two games. I’m not sure because I haven’t joined the PO yet, but the situation will be a little different from that time. Even though (former) Seonghyun was sick, the rest of the players improved a lot. He also instilled motivation in the players,” he said, predicting a different move from the regular league.
Can Carrot, who has become smaller if only KGC meets this season, use a miracle in the semifinals following the PO in the semifinals? It is worth paying attention to whether coach Kim Seung-gi can realize another ‘impressive basketball’ and put a dagger in his parent team.
