KOGAS beat KCC 96-81 in an away game in the 2023-24 regular season of the Korean Basketball Association (KBA) at 카지노사이트 Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on Friday.

KCC was on a 10-game losing streak, the longest since the team’s inception after Samsung Electronics in Seoul on March 31. They were also struggling on the road, losing six straight games. KCC, on the other hand, was returning home to start a three-game home stand. With just three wins and six losses in their first nine league games, KCC was looking to bounce back at home.

However, KCC’s hopes were dashed from the start. KCC’s foreign player duo, Andrew Nicholson and Samjosef Belangel, combined for 12 points in the first quarter. KCC was unable to control their offense.

In the second quarter, Belangell showed no signs of slowing down, scoring 12 points in the second quarter, including two three-pointers, as he poured in 24 points in the first half. KCC held a comfortable 60-39 lead at halftime.

KCC made a run in the third quarter, with Song Kyo-chang returning from injury, but could not close the gap much. In the end, KCC won the game by 15 points and extended their winning streak against KCC to four, dating back to last season. In the victory, Vellangel finished with 30 points and six assists, while Nicholson added 25 points and 11 rebounds. Lee Dae-heon (19 points) and Park Ji-hoon (12 points) also chipped in.

For KCC, Ragan-ah led the way with 19 points and eight rebounds. Lee Ho-hyun (10 points), Choi Jun-yong (10 points), Heo Woong (11 points), and Alize DeShawn Johnson (12 points) also scored in double figures, but it was not enough to close the gap. Song Kyo-chang was limited to three points, three rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes. KCC fell to 7-3 in the league.

On the same day, Hyundai Mobis won 80-66 on the road against Samsung at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium. Gage Prim (20 points) and Kebe Aluma (18 points) combined for 38 points, while the veteran presence of Choi Jin-soo (11 points) and Ham Ji-hoon (11 points) shined. Samsung, on the other hand, maintained a single-digit lead through the second quarter, but completely lost its grip on the game, falling behind by as many as 12 points in the third quarter alone. The lead changed hands 13 times in the first half, but Hyundai Mobis finally pulled away in the third quarter to end Samsung’s five-game winning streak.

Finally, LG won a big 80-49 home game against Goyang Sono at Changwon Indoor Gymnasium. After a tight first half, the balance between the two teams was tipped in the third quarter. While LG’s Yang Hong-seok, Justin Gutang, and Asem Marei battled for points, Sono was held scoreless for the first five minutes of the third quarter. LG scored 24 points in the third quarter, compared to just nine for Sono. All seven players except Chinanu Onuaku missed the rim. LG, which led by as many as 19 points at one point, used multiple players to close out the game. Sono was unable to overcome its shooting woes down the stretch.

Yang Hong-seok recorded a double-double with 19 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, while Asem Marei also shined with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Sono, on the other hand, couldn’t overcome an abysmal shooting performance, shooting just 14 percent from three-point range as they dropped their eighth game in a row.
