Ulsan Hyundai Mobis defeated Suwon KT 69-59 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball home game held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 18th. Hyundai Mobis, which is aiming for the second place to advance to the semifinal playoffs, recorded 26 wins and 17 losses, maintaining a tie for third place with Seoul SK. The gap with second place Changwon LG is two games.
When Hyundai Mobis and KT faced each other, they scored more goals than usual. However, both teams focused more on defense on this day. In the low-scoring game, Hyundai Mobis scored 27 points in the 3rd quarter and allowed only 14 points to KT. This advantage eventually led to victory.
Prior to the match, KT coach Seo Dong-cheol expressed his intention to use Han Hee-won and Park Ji-won as defenders and was wary of Ronsay Avarientos’ 3-point shot. Although Avarientos’ 3-point shot accuracy (2/13) fell that day, he contributed to the team’s victory by recording 14 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists.
After winning that day, Avarientos said, “It is a pleasant victory to run two consecutive wins this week. It was bad because Lee Woo-seok was injured in the previous game, but all the players stepped up and worked hard until the buzzer sounded.” 안전놀이터
Seo Myung-jin (15 points including 3 3-pointers) led the scoring with active play.
“We need another player to step up,” Avarientos said. We were able to win because we had a lot of depth and a lot of players who could lead. I am grateful to the coaching staff for helping me step up.”
When asked if he had any advice from coach Dong-geun Yang rather than coach Dong-hyun Cho, Avarientos said, “Coach Yang is good at defense, so he helps in defense, tells me about on-ball and off-the-ball defense, professional attitude, off-court behavior. I am very grateful to you for letting me know.”
Manager Cho Dong-hyun points out a lot about Avarientos’ defense.
Avarientos said, “I accept what is acceptable and strive for development.”
