Reporter Lee Eui-jin = Professional basketball player Goyang Carrot laughed for the first time in the 4th ‘Kim Seung-gi · Jeon Seong-hyun Derby’ with Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation.
Kim Jin-yu, who is less than 190 cm tall, recorded his first double-double in his personal career, including 17 rebounds, and became the number one contributor to ‘Surrender’.
Carrot defeated Ginseng Corporation 85-65 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball home game held at Goyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 21st.

Carrot, who gave up rounds 1 and 2, seemed to be winning in the 3rd round, but lost 3 times in a row due to Park Ji-hoon’s dramatic final score right before the end.
Carrot (18-15), who won the first match in the fourth match, has won five in a row. The ranking remained at number 5.

Jeon Seong-hyun scored 7 points, including 1 3, and Omari Spellman took a narrow lead over Ginseng Corporation, 21-19 in the 1st quarter, with 9 points and 7 rebounds.
3 minutes and 30 seconds before the end of the first half, Jeon Seong-hyun overcame Oh Se-geun’s close defense and scored the third 3 points, and even before the end, he hit a shot from the corner, leading Carrot to a 41-32 lead.
Carrot, who threw as many as 24 3s in the first half, continued to attack from the outskirts in the second half.
In the middle of the third quarter, Kim Kang-sun hit two 3-pointers from the corner in 20 seconds, widening the gap to 14 points.

On this day, Carrot threw 46 3s and made 17 of them. This is the season’s best in 3-point attempts.
In terms of history, in December 2018, March 2019, and March 2022, it tied for 7th with Ginseng Corporation.
The first and second teams in this category are Incheon Etland (now Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, 56) and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis (53), which set a record on March 7, 2004.
These two games were the result of a ‘skid’ in which current KBL game head coach Mungyeong-eun and former national team coach Woo Ji-won drove 22 and 21 3-stores, respectively, amidst the opponent’s ‘consideration’.
Seoul SK defeated Suwon kt 76-73 in the away game.
SK, which became 18-14, tied for 3rd place with Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, and kt (14-18) maintained 7th place.
From the first half, SK played its own fast basketball, drawing out the opponent’s mistakes with active pressure.
SK, who recorded 8 steals in the first half, drew 10 errors from kt and led 51-40 until the 2nd quarter.
Kim Seon-hyeong, who ran through the opponent’s court with Oh Jae-hyeon, opened the score gap to double digits with a quick dunk two minutes before the end of the first half. 안전놀이터
