(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Lee Eui-jin = Seoul Samsung, once known as a ‘basketball powerhouse’, lost to rival SK, also based in Seoul, and fell into the deep swamp of ’19 consecutive away losses’ along with 8 consecutive losses this season.

This is the longest losing streak in away games in professional basketball history.

Samsung lost 75-82 to SK in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball Regular League away game held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 20th.

As a result, Samsung suffered the stigma of being the team that lost the most away games in a row in the history of professional basketball, which was launched in 1997.

Daegu Dongyang in 1998-1999, SK in 2003, and Samsung in 2021-2022 recorded 18 consecutive away games. Samsung, launched under coach Eun Hee-seok, started losing in December last year and eventually became the team with the most consecutive losses.

Samsung (2 wins, 10 losses), which suffered 8 consecutive losses this season, ranked 9th, slightly ahead of Daegu Korea Gas Corporation (1 win, 10 losses), which ranked last.

On the other hand, SK, which has won 9 consecutive games at home since February of this year, rose to a tie for 3rd place with Changwon LG (7 wins, 4 losses).

SK extended its winning streak against Samsung and Seoul rivals to seven games.

Samsung took a 27-20 lead in the first quarter, led by Kofi Coburn, who succeeded in all four shots under the goal.

However, in the second quarter, when Oh Se-geun (6 points) and Jamil Warney (7 points) showed strength, the score in the first half was pushed to 43-45, and in the third quarter, Coburn was tied down by the help defense of Warney and Choi Boo-kyung, making it difficult to attack. Couldn’t find it.

At the start of the 4th quarter, Samsung gave up an easy layup to Oh Jae-hyeon due to a defensive mistake, but then all three attacks came to nothing, and Choi Won-hyuk scored 3 points in a fast break situation, leading Samsung to a double-digit lead.

Coburn then committed an offensive foul on Song Chang-yong, and five minutes before the end of the game, Lee Won-seok missed Lee Jeong-hyun’s pass and a number of mistakes were made, gradually losing momentum in the chase.

At the end of the game, SK, with coach Jeon Hee-cheol using the team’s best lineup of Kim Sun-hyung, Ahn Young-jun, Heo Il-young, Oh Se-geun and Warney, maintained the victory by effectively suppressing Coburn’s under-the-goal strategy.

It was painful for Samsung to record only 2 steals while making 11 errors.

On the other hand, SK stole the opponent’s ball 8 times.

Warney exploded with 31 points and 16 rebounds, winning a complete victory over the 210cm tall center Coburn. Coburn had 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Oh Se-geun also supported Warney from inside and outside with 15 points and 8 rebounds.
