‘6 wins and 1 loss in the last 7 games’ LG, the hidden contributor is Jung Hee-jae
Jeong Hee-jae (196cm, F) is the hidden protagonist of LG’s rising trend.
Changwon LG is with coach Cho Sang-hyun for the 2022-2023 season. Josanghyunpyo LG is located in a high place. 22-13, 2nd place alone. 1st place, Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation (24 wins, 11 losses) and 2 games difference.
However, not many predicted LG’s leap forward. Only coach Jo Sang-hyun and coaching staff have changed, but LG players have not changed.
Of course, it is great that Kim Jun-il (200cm, C) came back from an Achilles tendon injury. Kim Jun-il is a big man who can score points in various places. However, an Achilles rupture is an injury with great aftereffects. So, Kim Jun-il needed someone to help him.
Seo Min-soo (196cm, F) did it to some extent at the beginning of the 2022-2023 season. However, he was unable to lift his body after the injury. The lack of available big men has further decreased. It seemed that LG coach Jo Sang-hyun was worried.
However, Jung Hee-jae got rid of that worry. Jung Hee-jae played 22 minutes and 32 seconds per game in the last 7 games, recording 7.3 points, 4.0 rebounds (1.3 offense) and 1.1 assists. While Heejae Jeong was active, LG was 6-1. The upward trend was remarkable.
Of course, it wasn’t just Jung Hee-jae’s performance. Lee Kwan-hee (191cm, G) showed his ability to score, and Asem Marey (202cm, C) and Dante Cunningham (203cm, F) did their part.
However, Jeong Hee-jae is the person who eased the burden on Lee Jae-do (180cm, G), Lee Kwan-hee, and Marey. In particular, it created a synergistic effect with Marey. He thrilled Marey with clever defense, tenacious rebounding, and a shot on a chance.
It is a pleasure for LG to have excited Marey. This is because Maray is LG’s No. 1 option. In particular, when Marey is excited, LG’s defense and rebound become sticky. This is because Marey’s greatest strength is his defense and fights under the goal. 메이저사이트
There was also a game in which Jeong Hee-jae took the lead himself. It was a match against Suwon KT held on the 29th. Lee Kwan-hee missed 3 points 5 seconds before the game ended, but Jung Hee-jae jumped high on the other side. Finish the loose ball as it is. Jung Hee-jae’s dedication was the final score. Jung Hee-jae’s finish made everyone excited.
LG coach Cho Sang-hyeon was also not aware of Jung Hee-jae’s hidden achievements. So, “Marey is the base option for our team. We need to raise Marey’s performance and maintain the performance that has been raised. That’s why a big man who plays with Marey is important. (Jeong) Hee-jae is easing the burden on Marey in both offense and defense. Because of that, we were able to gain strength,” he said, considering Jung Hee-jae’s recent performance encouraging.
After the end of the KT match, he said, “I asked (Lee) Jae Donna (Lee) Kwan-hee to solve it, and said that more than 3 players should do offensive rebounds. (Jeong) Hee-jae did it well. Hee-jae’s offensive rebound made the difference.”
However, LG did not secure a playoff ticket. LG coach Cho Sang-hyun also said, “The results come out at the end of the 6th round. Until then, we have to live our daily lives.” Nevertheless, Heejae Jeong’s rise is a welcome thing for LG. That’s because LG now has another option available.
