“Coach Dong-geun Yang told me a lot.”
Ulsan Hyundai Mobis defeated Changwon LG 82-75 in the regular 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball league held at Ulsan Dongcheon Gymnasium on the 24th. Achieved 3 consecutive wins for the 3rd time of the season. 3 out of 10 clubs to achieve 20 wins. The ranking is 3rd alone (20-14). LG (20-13), which is in second place, is half a game behind.
The number one contributor was definitely Gage Prim (205cm, C). Prim recorded 24 points, 10 rebounds (attack 2), 2 assists and 1 steal in 32 minutes and 14 seconds. He scored the most points and grabbed the most rebounds among players on both teams. LG 1 option foreign player Assem Marey (22 minutes 38 seconds, 13 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists) won by decision.
However, Prim’s activity radius and scoring area were limited to the paint zone. In order to maximize the power of Prim, the power of external resources is needed. To be specific, it requires a long shooting distance from the outer resources.
Seo Myung-jin (189cm, G) put this into practice well. He recorded 14 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists, including 3 3-pointers. Outer gunners ensured Prim’s attack space.
The role of Seo Myung-jin did not stop there. He did not give in to the opponent’s pressure defense, but rather reduced the radius of action of the LG ball handler with a stronger pressure defense. The shooting balance was also shaken.
Hyundai Mobis coach Jo Dong-hyun also said after the game, “He is a very talented player. If he has aggressiveness, he is a player who can do well,” he said highly of Jin Myung-jin’s active play.
Seo Dong-hyun, who entered the interview room after director Cho Dong-hyun, said, “It was a difficult schedule, but it was an important schedule to chase the top ranks. Fortunately, I am satisfied with the finish,” he said, positively looking back at the three games after the All-Star break.
He continued, “The players on the bench did better than me. In particular, (Kim) Younghyun-hyung, (Shin) Min-seok, and (Kim) Tae-wan did a good job. I really wanted to mention the names of those players.”
On the other hand, Seo Myung-jin tries a lot of mid-range jumpers after 2v2. He listens to coach Yang Dong-geun’s advice. Coach Yang Dong-geun was a guard who harassed opponents with screens and mid-range jumpers during his active career.
Seo Myung-jin said, “In the past, even if the center came to me a little, I had a habit of passing. However, coach Yang Dong-geun said, ‘Just look at the center’s fingertips and shoot. Raise the parabola. If you shoot like that, even if you fail, the big man can grab the offensive rebound.” That kind of advice was helpful,” said coach Yang Dong-geun. 안전놀이터
He continued, “Coach Dong-geun Yang tells me and (Lee) Woo-seok a lot of shots. In the case of a mid-range jumper, he emphasized how to manage the ball after jumping, the habit of lowering the ball, and the mindset of seeing the shot first,” he added about the mid-range jumper.
He received a lot of technical know-how. However, if the know-how is not utilized, coach Yang Dong-geun’s leadership and Seo Myung-jin’s potential cannot be out in the world. So there was an item that coach Yang Dong-geun and Seo Myung-jin agreed on. It was ‘active’.
