Technical support issues
Warnie and Heo Il-young did their part. However, it was disappointing that Sono's outside scoring could not be controlled.
Seoul SK held a practice match with Goyang Sono at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 4th. Although many key players such as Kim Seon-hyung, Oh Se-geun, and Choi Bu-kyung were missing, they did their best until the end and finished the game with a score of 93-98.
The players who took center stage in the team were Jamil Warney and Heo Il-young. Warnie scored 28 points even though it was a practice game. Heo Il-young also raised 17 points regardless of inside or outside. However, the loss was due to the inability to control Sono's outside scoring.
SK started the game with Hong Gyeong-gi’s 3-point shot. In addition, Warney's second chance was added to set the tone in the early stages of the game. After that, they gave up the momentum by conceding consecutive goals. Then I applied for operation time. Heo Il-young's mid-range score changed the mood.
However, Sono allowed consecutive 3-point shots. The score gap widened further. So SK finished the first quarter with 15-27.
In the second quarter, SK conceded consecutive goals. Leon Williams scored about two minutes into the quarter, but it was still Sono's mood. As a result, the score gap widened to 19 points.
SK responded with quick goals from Heo Il-young and Warney. With two players scoring consecutive goals, SK succeeded in catching up. Successfully conquered the opponent's area defense. Warney's dunk scored 40 seconds before the end of the quarter, creating a 9-point lead. SK, who scored Heo Il-young's free throw just before the end of the quarter, finished the first half with a score of 42-49.
SK's Warney scored at the start of the third quarter. Afterwards, Heo Il-young and Warney scored consecutive goals. But this time too, the perimeter defense was the problem. Allowed 3-point shots to Kim Ji-hoo and Kim Min-wook. Jarrod Jones also conceded a goal, and the score gap widened again. Williams, who replaced Warney, played an active part in the attack. But Sono’s shooting sensation was still hot. At the end of the third quarter, the score was 64-78.
Although the score difference was large, the SK players did not give up. A quick attack was carried out. In addition, Oh Jae-hyun and Heo Il-young scored outside goals. Warnie reliably protected the goal. However, it was disappointing that we were unable to control Sono's outside scoring this time. The two teams traded points and the score difference was maintained.
The goal of the practice game was not to win or lose, but to check the players' skills and tactics. That's why SK uses players evenly. The players who came out on the court did their best. However, they were unable to close the gap in scores and lost the game.
