Gas Corporation Belangel swept 30 points, including 5 3-point shots, and
Yang Hong-seok 19 points’ LG, Sono, took sole second place Last 9 wins and 1 loss

Korea Gas Corporation of Daegu, the lowest ranked team in professional basketball, defeated 'super team' Busan KCC and escaped a 10-game losing streak.

In the 2023-2024 Cheong Kwan Jang professional basketball game against KCC held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 25th, Korea Gas Corporation won 96-81, led by Sam Joseph Belangel and Andrew Nicholson.

With this, the lowest-ranked Korea Gas Corporation escaped from a long 10-game losing streak and reported its second win (12 losses).

Starting guard Kim Nak-hyeon was unable to accompany Busan due to injury, but Belangel filled the void by scoring 30 points (6 assists), including 5 3-pointers. Nicholson recorded a double-double with 25 points and 11 rebounds.

The 'super team' KCC (3 wins, 7 losses), which was mentioned as a strong candidate for the championship, joined Song Kyo-chang, who was concentrating on rehabilitation after being discharged from the military, but postponed the rebound until later.

After losing two games in a row, they fell to 8th place.

Song Kyo-chang suffered an injury to his right posterior cruciate ligament last September while wearing the Taegeuk symbol and preparing for the Hangzhou Asian Games. He has since focused on rehabilitation and has not been able to step on the court even after being discharged for the past 15 days.

Song Kyo-chang, who entered the court with 5 minutes left in the second quarter, succeeded in scoring his first score with a 3-point shot. He played a total of 18 minutes and 5 seconds, posting 3 points, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist.

In KCC, Laguna scored the most points with 19 points (8 rebounds).

With the addition of Song Kyo-chang, KCC has built an ultra-luxurious lineup that includes La Gun-ah, Heo Woong, Lee Seung-hyun, and Choi Jun-yong. However, the prevailing view is that a little more time is needed to correct organizational capabilities. Distribution of playing time for each player is also a challenge.

Changwon LG won the game against Goyang Sono at the Changwon Indoor Gymnasium with a score of 80-49 with Yang Hong-seok at the forefront.

LG (9 wins, 4 losses), with 4 consecutive wins, beat Seoul SK (8 wins, 4 losses) and rose to second place. They have 3 games to go with leader Wonju DB (13 wins, 2 losses).

LG, which got off to a shaky start with three consecutive losses in the opening game, is on the rise with 9 wins and 1 loss in the next 10 games. It is also their 6th consecutive home win.

Sono (4 wins, 8 losses), whose national team shooter Jeon Seong-hyun left due to injury, has fallen into a swamp of three consecutive losses.

Yang Hong-seok, who newly joined LG in the off-season free agent market, was at the center of the victory with 19 points and 10 rebounds. He also had 5 assists.

The support of Assem Marey (15 points, 12 rebounds), Kwanhee Lee, and Justin Gutang (9 points) also stood out.

In Sono, Chinanu Onuaku played hard with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Leading scorer Lee Jeong-hyeon was blocked by LG's intensive defense and scored only 11 points.

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis won 80-66 in the match against Seoul Samsung held at Jamsil Indoor Stadium.

As a result, Hyundai Mobis reported its 7th win (7th loss) and returned to a winning percentage of .500. Samsung (3 wins, 11 losses), which succeeded in escaping an 8-game losing streak in the last game, was unable to continue its winning streak.

Gage Prim led the victory with 20 points, the most points of both teams. Veteran Choi Jin-su gave nutritional value a perfect score of 11. 19가이드03
