Lee Jung-hyun, who was in his second year, also recorded 22 points and 7 assists, and rookie Ahn Jung-wook also made a big success by posting 13 points, including 4 3 points.

The scoreboards of both teams, which had been tense as if looking in a mirror, were overturned in the fourth minute of the third quarter. In Carrot, Seong-Hyun Jeon scored 5 points in a row at the start of the second half, and Jung-Hyeon Lee also scored the 6th 3 points, quickly taking a 61-50, 11-point lead. Carrot’s bombardment continued afterwards. Jeon Seong-hyun added two 3-point shots in a row, widening Carrot’s lead to 18 points.
The 21 3 points Carrot scored on this day is a record tied for 3rd in the 3-point success category in a single game in professional basketball careers. In March of last year, Changwon LG recorded the same 21 points in a match against Jeonju KCC 메이저놀이터. The first place is 28 records recorded by Incheon Etland (currently Daegu Korea Gas Corporation) in Wonju TG Sambo (current Wonju DB) match in 2004, and the second place is 24 records recorded by Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in LG match on the same day. However, at the time, the two records were the records of 22 and 21 3-pointers, respectively, by Mungyeong-eun, current head of the KBL game headquarters, and former national coach Woo Ji-won, to win the 3-pointer title. Considering the circumstances, Carrot’s record of 21 deserves to be evaluated as an all-time high.
