Director Kim Seung-gi showed affection for Lee Jung-hyun.

Goyang Carrot met Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season game held at Goyang Gymnasium on the 27th and lost 83-88.

Lee Jung-hyun (187cm, G) has averaged 9.7 points, 2.7 assists and 2.6 rebounds since his debut season. He got sharper in the playoffs for the first time. He played 6 games and averaged 15 points and 2 rebounds. He recorded a field goal success rate of 53%, a three-point shot success rate of 43%, and a free throw success rate of 88%, showing the aspect of a ‘strong heart’ uncharacteristic of a rookie.

That’s why this season of Lee Jung-Hyun gathered more expectations. In addition, Lee Jung-hyun has a new coach this season. He met director Kim Seung-gi, who raised Byun Jun-hyung (187cm, G) and others. There were many times when I was criticized rather than praised, but I grew steadily under coach Kim. As a result, he averaged 14.8 points, 4.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds for the season.

Lee Jung-hyun’s team, Carrot, was expected to be in the lower ranks, but with Seong-Hyun Jeon (188cm, F), Didric Lawson (202cm, F), and Jung-Hyun Lee, they made a sensation and succeeded in advancing to the playoffs.

Recently, Lee Jung-hyun’s performance has become more important. The reason is that Jeon Seong-hyeon (188cm, F) has a cochlear problem and there is a possibility that he will not be able to play in the playoffs beyond the rest of the regular season. In the recent two games without Jeon Seong-hyeon, Lee Jung-hyun scored 23 and 19 points.

Director Kim also said, “There is no (former) Seonghyeon and (Han) Hobin. Now (Lee) Jung Hyun has to do more. I hope he can grow further through this opportunity.”

And in today’s game, Lee Jung-hyun had to lead the team’s attack without Jeon Seong-hyun. Although he lost the game, he recorded 24 points and 6 assists, threatening his opponent to the end.

Carrot was able to set the mood from the beginning of the first quarter. Because Lawson led the attack. Lee Jung-hyun scored two points, but Lawson’s performance led the team to 11-4. However, Carrot failed to score after 3 minutes and 28 seconds. The player who broke the flow was Lee Jung-hyun. He scored a breakthrough in the 11-14 situation. Later, in a team foul situation, he raised a free throw and added a basket count, scoring 7 points in a row. Thanks to Lee Jung-hyun’s performance, the score from 11-14 became 18-14.카지노

But after that, Lee Jung-hyun was somewhat quiet. He had only 1 of 5 shots attempted going to the rim in the second quarter. He added 4 points and 2 assists in the 3rd quarter, but Carrot did not catch the mood. In the second half of the third quarter, it was important to allow the opponent to score three fast runs.

Lee Jung-hyun led the team’s offense by doing his best until the end of the 4th quarter. In particular, he made the opponent nervous by scoring a quick transition 48 seconds before the end of the game and a free throw 21 seconds before the end of the game. However, the score difference that had already been made was large, and I could not overturn it and unfortunately lost the game.

Lee Jung-hyun, who continues to be active, is selected as a candidate for the Strong Skill Development Award. However, coach Kim said, “Jung Hyun-yi should aim for the best 5, MVP in the future. It would be nice if he won the skill development award, but I hope he will aim for something bigger.” As manager Kim said, Lee Jung-hyun is growing into the best guard in the league.
