Dongguk University won 66-59 against Sangmyung University in the 2023 KUSF College Basketball U-League held at the Sangmyung University Cheonan Campus Gymnasium on the 28th .

Dongguk ㅋㅋㅋ벳University succeeded in overpowering the team from the first quarter. Through strong defense, he caused the opponent’s mistakes and through this, he scored a goal on a fast break. In addition, Park Seung-jae was active inside and outside, and all players scored evenly. As a result, he scored 28 points in the first quarter alone. In the second quarter, Choi Jun-hwan gave 9 points and Dankook University’s offense was not resolved, but the score difference was still large.

And in the third quarter, Dongguk University’s offense did not work out well. In the first 3 minutes of the 3rd quarter, it was tied at 2 points, but rather, it took the flow by giving the opponent a 3-point shot in a row. In such a situation, Park Seung-jae scored 5 points in a row and Lee Dae-gyun also scored. There was a crisis in the 4th quarter, but with Park Seung-jae and Lee Dae-gyun’s performance, they struggled to win the game.

Coach Lee Ho-geun, who won the first game after the break, said, “I think the atmosphere is important in college basketball. The recent losing streak has made the players impatient. Still, I hope today’s game will serve as an opportunity to find confidence and rebound,” he began the interview.

On this day, Dongguk University scored 28 points in the first quarter. However, in the 2nd and 3rd quarters, it showed somewhat frustrating offensive power. This became an excuse to give the opponent a chance to pursue. Nevertheless, it was approval to tie the opponent to 59 points through strong defense.

In response, coach Lee said, “I put a lot of emphasis on defense during the midterm exam break. Today’s defense wasn’t bad,” he said. “But the offense didn’t show any stats. So he hasn’t played cool in his last 7 games. He’s likely to have a better game if he hits the outside shot. I think that’s homework,” he said of the team’s air defense.

The beginning of the season at Dongguk University was very uneasy. It was because they won the opening match, but after that, they recorded 5 consecutive losses. Nevertheless, after the break, he won the first game and raised the mood.

When asked about the rest period, coach Lee said, “I had video meetings with the players and talked a lot. He spoke of confidence and self-esteem. He also said a lot to the players, ‘It would be nice to create an opportunity after the Sangmyung Daejeon’. I hope the players will rebound with today’s game.”

Although it is in the bottom ranks now, it is Dongguk University that can rebound sufficiently. That is why the next match against Hanyang University is important. Coach Lee also recognized this and said, “The next match is against Hanyang University. It is a reckless team. If you lose in the rebound battle, the game is no longer possible. I will prepare by emphasizing that part more.”
