Moon Seong-gon said of Kim Seon-hyeong, “He uses a change dribble that changes left and right directions. He has a good rhythm. He doesn’t want to be fooled by his unique rhythm. When I was strongly screened, Omari Spellman and (Oh) Segeun hyung talked to me well, so I was able to escape.”
The offense was sluggish with 4 points as they concentrated all their energy on the defense. Oh Se-geun emphasized Moon Seong-gon’s defense, saying, “(Moon) Seong-gon is fine even if he doesn’t shoot. I was able to win because he defended so well in the front line.” 안전놀이터
Even SK head coach Jeon Hee-chul, the enemy general, admitted, “He is very active and is good at defending to get out of the screen. I want to praise him. He is a player of the opposing team, but I have to talk about it.”
Moon Seong-gon said, “When I have to block the opponent’s ace, I always block it by saying let’s die together. Rather than me blocking it well, I was able to defend well because Se-geun hyung and Spellman came to help.”
