Professional basketball team Wonju DB has been on a roll since the start of the season .The DB won 90-79 away from home against the Ulsan Hyundai Mobis at Dongcheon Gymnasium in Ulsan on Friday. The game was expected to be a straightforward victory, with Hyundai Mobis leading 50-31 in the second quarter, but DB fought back in the second half to win by 11 points. Ahead of the 2023-2024 season, DB was coached by Kim Joo-sung, who was an iconic figure in Korean basketball during his playing days.

Averaging 30.3 points (2nd), 9.7 rebounds (5th), and 4.8 assists (6th), Lawson is quickly becoming the best foreign player this season. Last season, he averaged 18.7 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 3.3 assists while playing for Sono’s predecessor Carot. In addition, the likes of captain Kang Sang-jae and national team member Kim Jong-kyu have added height and speed to the power of the former DB Acid.
SPOTV commentator Lee Sang-yoon said, “The performance of Lawson, Kim Jong-kyu, and Kang Sang-jae is of course good, but senior players such as Park Chan-hee have also created a team atmosphere where their bodies fly when they come out on the court.” “The sixth men such as Min-su, Choi Seung-wook, and Kim Young-hyun also work hard and raise the team’s atmosphere,” he said. The upcoming schedule is also favorable. The team will play six home games in a row, starting with Samsung on the 7th and ending with Samsung Electronics on the 18th. “We need to manage the physical fitness of Lawson and Lee Sun Albano, who tend to play a lot of minutes,” said Lee Sang-yoon, advising that the team should utilize newly acquired Jeff Widdie or Doo Kyung-min, who 카지노사이트 will return from injury, to solve the long-term race.
