EASL Runner-up' SK Coach Jeon Hee-cheol “We will see Sharp Spears Again in PO”



Director Kim Sang-sik of Cheong Kwan-jang, who ranked 3rd, said, “We were ahead in the final concentration.”

Coach Jeon said in an interview with local reporters after the 2023-2024 EASL final against Chiba Jets (Japan) held at the Hoops Dome in Lapu-Lapu, Cebu, Philippines on the 10th, “The result is disappointing, but Chiba is a very good team.

“Our players did their best,” he said.

In the final, SK lost to Chiba 69-72 and finished as runners-up.

After losing in the final to Anyang Jeonggwanjang last season, SK had to be satisfied with finishing as EASL runner-up for the second year in a row.

SK fought well against Chiba, led by Yuki Togashi, who was selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Japanese Professional Basketball B. League in 2019 despite being short at 168cm tall, but was unable to overcome the critical moment in the close match at the end.

Coach Jeon said, “We were inferior in rebounding in the first half, but we focused in the second half.

We showed all our defensive ability, but our shooting condition was a little poor,” and added, “I think we had a disappointing game because our field goal success rate fell.”

He said, “There were some physically difficult parts, but in hindsight, I think it was an interesting experience.

As we watched other league teams play against our strengths, we tried using different offense and defense,” and added, “I and the players also took a step forward.

“It was an opportunity for development,” he said, citing the achievement.

SK, which is ranked 4th in the domestic professional basketball regular league (28 wins, 18 losses) and is competing for the top spot, will return to Korea and play a home game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation on the 13th.

Coach Jeon said, “It's unfortunate that Choi Bu-kyung was injured in this tournament, but Kim Seon-hyung will return when the league resumes.

Our defense has improved while there have been many injuries in the team, and in the playoffs, we will show our true sharpness again” I made up my mind.

SK's Ahn Young-jun also said, “It would have been nice if the shot had gone well and the game had been easier, but that wasn't the case.”

Although he was disappointed with the final result, he added, “There is something to be gained by clashing with players from other countries.

The experience of blocking foreign players in my position comes from the KBL.

“It will also be of great help,” he said.

Meanwhile, coach Kim Sang-sik of Anyang Jeonggwanjang, which ranked third in this tournament, said, “New Taipei was a good team, but we were more focused at the end,” and added, “There are some regrets, but it feels good to win.”

Defending champion Cheong Kwan-Jang failed to get past SK in the semifinals of this tournament, but achieved a final victory by beating Taiwan's New Taipei Kings 78-76 in the third-place match that day and taking third place.

Regarding guard Park Ji-hoon, who scored 29 points, Coach Kim encouraged him, saying, “He is currently the team's ace, and he played a key role in today's victory as well.

If he improves his reading ability, he will be able to grow into a top-class player.

I think he will do well in the future.”
