Seoul SK, who played their first home game in a month, defeated Seoul Samsung and won three games in a row, moving up to a tie for third place. An income as valuable as victory is the resurrection of Oh Se-geun (36).
Oh Se-geun played 25 minutes and 41 seconds in the 2023-24 Jeong Kwan-Jang Professional Basketball home game against Samsung held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 20th and made a great performance with 15 points and 8 rebounds.
In the first quarter of this day, SK fell behind by 12 points as its defense was breached by Samsung’s strong attack, but it counterattacked with Oh Se-geun and Jamil Warney (31 points, 16 rebounds, 7 assists) at the center and achieved a thrilling comeback victory.
Oh Se-geun, who left Anyang Cheonggwanjang and transferred to SK at the end of last season, has only scored in single digits in 9 consecutive games since the season opened. It was an unfamiliar appearance considering that since his professional debut in the 2011-12 season, he has scored double-digit scores in every season except for the 2013-14 season (average 9.5 points).
However, Oh Se-geun rebounded by scoring double-digit scores for two consecutive games following the Suwon KT game on the 18th (20 points).
SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol expressed satisfaction, saying, “Oh Se-geun was faultless in everything, including court balance, defensive position, and vision for reading the game, but the only problem was his shooting balance. As he is a good shooting player, I believed that his shooting sense would definitely return.”
After the game, Oh Se-geun expressed confidence, saying, “I personally experienced ups and downs, but my condition has been improving since the last KT match. Now I can continue to show a good performance.”
Regarding the decline in shooting accuracy at the beginning of the season, it was said to be an adaptation issue. Oh Se-geun said, “There is bound to be a difference in play between my previous team (Cheong Kwan-jang) and SK. I have to continue to adapt to the new team. I am practicing a lot despite the tight schedule. I am currently developing a sense of shooting. 3 “From the second half of the round, my shooting feel and physical condition will improve,” he said.
On this day, the match against Samsung was the second home game since Se-Jun Oh’s transfer. It has been 29 days since the SK team played at home against KT on October 22nd.
Coach Jeon said, “It was really nice to play at home for the first time in a while. The cheers and applause from the home fans when we turned the tables was thrilling.”
Oh Se-geun also expressed his gratitude to the 4,108 spectators in attendance that day, saying, “I felt really comfortable playing at home after playing 8 consecutive away games. I was able to have a good game thanks to the energy of the fans.”
SK narrowed the gap with leader Wonju DB (12 wins, 1 loss) to 4 games. The gap can be reduced if we win the match against DB on the 24th.
Oh Se-geun said, “In the first match of the season (76-106 loss), it was largely due to the tight schedule. We were too far behind in the height battle. This time, we will show a different appearance (compared to the last game) as our physical condition gradually improves at home. “I made up my mind.
