“The secret to good play is desperation and will.”
The Changwon LG Sakers won 80-77 against the Goyang Sono Skingunners in the regular season of the 토토사이트 2023-2024 Korean Basketball Association at Goyang Sono Arena on Jan. 1.
Yoo Yoo-sang led the way with 15 points, including two three-pointers, in the win. With the win, LG extended its winning streak to four games and moved past SK into sole possession of second place.
Yoo said, “I’m glad the team won. However, we had a few turnovers that we shouldn’t have, so I think we need to work on that. I think Josh Ibarra, who came in as a new player, gave us a lot of energy on offense.”
Yoo grabbed eight rebounds on the night, an impressive feat for a rookie. Looking back at the last three games, Yoo has scored 10 or more points in all three games and is a strong Rookie of the Year candidate.
Yoo said, “I didn’t realize I had eight rebounds. I was boxing out while blocking Kim Jin-yu, and I thought I should get them somehow, but I think I got lucky with a lot of them. I think it was good that I was active and participated in the rebounding,” he said.
“During the break, I was passive and disappointed, so in the second half, I thought I had to be more active and make it my own. I felt my deficiencies from the cup tournament and tried to play defense with urgency and determination, so I think I made a lot of good plays.”
