The Goyang Sono Skingunners lost 78-98 to the Seoul Samsung Thunder in the 2023-2024 regular season of the Korean Basketball League on Sunday at Jamsil Gymnasium.
The Sono, who joined the KBL as a new team this season, have the resources of Lee Jung-hyun and Jeon Sung-hyun, but there are gaps in their overall roster. The absence of Dedrick Lawson, who was supposed to be a mainstay, has left a gap in the lineup. Coach Kim Seung-ki 바카라사이트 is also worried about this aspect.
In his post-match interview, Kim said, “It’s going to be a difficult season. I apologize to the fans, but please understand that we had a tough start. But we will persevere until the end and get the first win. It’s true that we don’t have a full roster, but I ask the fans to understand this,” he said, expressing his feelings about today’s match.
The winner of the Lee Jung-hyun Derby was Jung-hyun of Taeguk and Lee Jung-hyun of Samsung. Jung-hyun Jae and Sono’s Lee Jung-hyun scored 20 points, but were unable to lead their teams to victory.
On Jeong, he said, “He scored a lot of points today. But there are a lot of things he needs to work on. But I think it will happen at some point, and it’s true that there are some things that don’t work. We need to sort it out quickly.”
However, Sonoda is still without a win since its inception.
In response, Kim said, “I think I need to think about it soberly and play my role as a coach so that we can end the losing streak as soon as possible. Honestly, it’s true that this season will be the toughest season in basketball. However, I will persevere until the end, and I will get the first win as soon as possible.”
