Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, which faced powerhouse Busan KCC in its first game of the season-opening KBL Cup competition, was left deeply disappointed with a loss amid an injury to its center.
Against KCC in the first game of the Group B preliminary round of the ‘2023 MG New Village Bank KBL Cup’ at Wolmyeong Gymnasium in Gunsan on the 9th, GAS was down by double-digit points early on and eventually lost 78-98.
After dropping the first quarter 13-29 against KCC, the favorites, GASCO had an even second quarter and even better third quarter, but ultimately couldn’t overcome the deficit.
Faced with the difficulty of reaching the final round due to the nature of the cup competition, where only the group winner advances to the quarterfinals, Gazprom suffered more than a defeat when the team’s number one foreign player, Isaiah Hicks, went down with an injury at the start of the game.카지노
Hicks, who left the court with ankle pain, will undergo a full medical examination in Daegu amid fears that he could tear his Achilles tendon and leave the team without even playing a regular season game.
Coach Kang Hyuk, who has been preparing for the season amidst criticism of his team’s weakness in terms of strength, said, “We had a lot of preparation, but we couldn’t play well after Hicks’ injury.
As a member of the three-team Group B, Gasworks will look to keep their hopes of advancing to the quarterfinals alive with their first win in their final group match against Changwon LG on November 11 at 2pm.
