Goyang Sono, a new professional basketball team, postponed reporting its first win until later and fell into two consecutive losses in the opening game.
Sono lost 79-90 in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball match against Seoul SK held at Sono Arena in Goyang on the 24th, showing a lack of support in the fourth quarter.
The first win of Sono, which was newly opened by taking over Day One Sports, which was expelled due to financial difficulties in the off-season, was postponed to a later date. 바카라사이트닷컴
Coach Kim Seung-gi of Sono said, “Just like last season, the players are trying to do their best. But as you can see, we are not good enough. We were pushed back in every way. We kept up well until the end, but our stamina seemed to be dropping.”
At the same time, he said, “It’s a process of getting better. I won’t be disappointed if I lose.”
They responded with several cards, including using an irregular trap defense to block SK’s key player Jamil Warney, but it was not easy. Warney scored 30 points and 17 rebounds, dominating Sono’s paint zone.
Coach Kim said, “The trap went well, but Ahn Jung-wook was sent off for five fouls, and Choi Hyun-min was injured, so there was a problem. This is the only way to do it.” “There are also difficulties,” he said.
Lawson, who led the offense and defense at Sono’s predecessor, Carrot, last season, transferred to Wonju DB in the off-season.
Dayone Sports, the operator of Carrot, was on the chopping block for poor management, including failing to pay salaries to athletes on time and delaying payment of membership fees.
He was finally expelled after the season ended. With the future uncertain, all off-season work came to a halt in the process of finding a new acquisition company.
A representative example is the failure to renew the contract with Lawson.
The plan to recruit a major domestic tall forward in the free agent market also fell through.
It is fortunate that Sono was able to provide a helping hand and sustain the club.
Coach Kim said, “It was difficult to form members (in the off-season),” but added, “Next season will be better than this season. I’m sorry, but if we are eliminated from the playoffs this season, it will be the last time.”
He continued, “The small players are going out there and fighting for their lives. Even though they lost, they got better than the previous game, and the next game will also be better. It’s difficult, but we will try to help the players get back up again. The players played hard.”
Sono is evaluated as the weakest along with Samsung in Seoul and Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu.
On the 27th, they will attempt to achieve their first win against Samsung.
