There is a killer dedicated to KCC in DB.
Wonju DB recorded 3 wins and 1 loss in 4 matches against Jeonju KCC. In the 3rd and 4th rounds held at the Wonju Gymnasium, DB completely overwhelmed KCC. All were victories by 10 points or more.
In the third round matchup, DB won 102-90. Among the even distribution of points, there was a player who stood out. It is Jeong Ho-young (24, 186.3cm). Jeong Ho-young recorded 15 points and 5 assists in 22 minutes and 38 seconds. It was the most goals scored by an individual this season. Due to his surprise performance, Jung Ho-young quickly emerged as a KCC killer.
Jeong Ho-young, who met KCC again on the 28th at the Wonju General Gymnasium, did not perform like a 3rd round, but played a good role. In 19 minutes and 38 seconds he recorded 9 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists. He joined the attack by breaking through with his quick feet and created chances for his teammates with his passes.
At 2 minutes and 22 seconds before the end of the game, when he had a feeling of victory, when his 3-pointer missed, he blew himself up and grabbed the rebound. In the process, Jeong Ho-young fell over the A board and fell toward the KCC bench. He rolled, but he shone. DB won 89-73 with an even performance including Jeong Ho-young. 안전놀이터
Jeong Ho-young’s average record this season is 4.1 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 13 minutes and 57 seconds in 19 games. His record is not outstanding, but his performance stands out when he meets KCC alone. The record against KCC is 12.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.0 steals. He deserves the nickname KCC dedicated killer.
After the match, I asked Jung Ho-young about the KCC killer nickname. Jeong Ho-young said, “The hyungs said, ‘KCC has (Jeong) Ho-young anyway, so you don’t have to worry. KCC is a killer,’ he joked. It seems to have been a nickname there. Actually, it’s a bit of a burden (laughs). He said, “I’m reflecting on myself because I don’t seem to have shown the image worthy of my nickname.”
“As the team’s defense improved and we won, the team atmosphere improved a lot. I was given a lot of opportunities, so I thought I had to do well, but it’s unfortunate that I missed a lot of individual defense and team defense. I hear a lot of stories that there are still weaknesses in defense. I think about it one more time before the match to make up for that, but I still lack a lot.”
Jung Ho-young dreams of becoming a killer against the 9th team, not limited to KCC.
