Professional basketball Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation won the largest PO victory in the ‘Kim Seung-gi Series’, which was concluded in the semifinal playoffs (PO).
Ginseng Corporation defeated Goyang Carrot, led by coach Kim Seung-gi, 99-43 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball Semifinal PO (3 wins in 5 games) home game held at Anyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 13th.
Coach Kim, who commanded Ginseng Corporation last season, and Jeon Seong-hyun, who was the main player, joined Carrot, so the match between the two teams has been called the ‘Kim Seung-gi Derby’.
In the semifinal PO, where up to 5 games are played, the ‘Kim Seung-gi Series’ was established beyond the derby.
Carrot (28-26), ranked 5th in the regular season, beat 4th place Ulsan Hyundai Mobis (34-20) with 3 wins and 2 losses in the round of 6 PO.
Fans’ attention was also focused on the fact that a ‘bad relationship’ continued, such as coach Kim receiving a ‘warning’ discipline from KBL for remarks criticizing former Ginseng Corporation manager Jeon Sam-sik during the regular season.
The one who laughed first was Ginseng Corporation, who finished the regular league in first place (37 wins and 17 losses) and challenged to win the championship for the first time in two seasons after the 2020-2021 season.
Ginseng Corporation won a ‘perfect victory’ by tying the opponent with the lowest score in PO history while posting the highest score difference in PO history.
The probability that the winning team in the first leg of the semifinal PO reached the championship match was 78% (39 out of 50).
The probability of the top team in the regular league advancing to the championship match was also 72% (36 out of 50), and like this time, in the match between 1st and 5th place, the 1st place team laughed in all 11 times.
Ginseng Corporation showed the potential to win the ‘Wire to Wire’ championship, keeping the lead from the beginning of the regular league to the end.
Ginseng Corporation, led by Omari Spellman, who scored 10 points, overwhelmed the team 27-9 from the first quarter.
Carrot, who had been led by 24 points 2 minutes before the end of the 2nd quarter, ended the first half with a difficult score of 25-52 as Didric Lawson scored 4 points in a row.
Ginseng Corporation scored the 60th point early with Spellman’s free throw score about 7 minutes before the end of the 3rd quarter and seized the victory.
Immediately after, Bae Byeong-jun scored 3 points and Han Seung-hee succeeded in a mid-range shot to make the difference 37 points, and just before the end of the quarter, Spellman’s 3 points led to a 48-point lead. 메이저놀이터
In the fourth quarter, Ginseng Corporation widened the gap further.
Ginseng Corporation, which ran away with Park Ji-hoon’s score 5 minutes before the end of the game, 92-37, eventually won a perfect victory by 56 points by gradually increasing the score difference.
Prior to this game, the victory with the largest score difference in PO was on April 25, 2021, between Incheon Electronic Land (now Daegu Gas Corporation) and Jeonju KCC. At that time, E-Land defeated KCC 112-67.
Carrot left an infamous record of breaking the lowest score in PO history.
The previous record was 50 points scored by Ulsan Mobis (now Hyundai Mobis) against Wonju Dongbu (now DB) in March 2012. At that time, Mobis lost 50-70.
Carrot threw a whopping 50 3s on the day, but missed 43. The success rate was only 14%.
On the other hand, Ginseng Corp. won 51 rebounds, almost twice as many as carrots (26), overwhelming the opponent from the bottom of the goal and showing off firepower from the outskirts with a 59% 3-point success rate.
