Monroe, who dominated the 4th quarter, showed strong confidence.
Anyang KGC Darryl Monroe (37, 196.6cm) played an active role with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in the 6th game of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship against Seoul SK held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 5th. KGC, which was supported by Oh Se-geun and Byun Jun-hyung along with Monroe, drove the series to the final 7th game by overcoming a 15-point inferiority and creating a reverse electrode.
After the match, Munro said, “It was a huge win. Until the third quarter, the will of SK players to win was stronger. After I entered the 4th quarter, I tried to be more active. That became a momentum change. The players also played with more confidence. He said that he could go home before the game, so he had to do it with his mental strength. It doesn’t matter who scores the most. He emphasized that winning is the most important thing.”
KGC, who had a tight confrontation with SK until the first half, struggled in the second half. The attack stagnated as the 3-point shot failed, and in the meantime, Jamil Warney and Choi Bu-kyung under the goal gave up a lot of runs. At one point in the third quarter, they trailed by 15 points and put it on the verge of crisis.
But KGC had Monroe. Monroe took the ball from the top and started attacking, and he scored himself. He led KGC’s comeback by concentrating on 10 points, including one 3-point shot, in the 4th quarter alone. He also had 5 rebounds and did not neglect defense and dirty work. With Monroe at the center of the team, KGC won a thrilling come-from-behind victory.
“It was effective to try to move actively. I told the players to pay close attention to their spacing and that if they were in this area, they would definitely have a chance. I told the guards to stay calm. Then you can do well through passing enough. He kept telling me that regional defense can be easily broken.” Monroe said.
On this day, KGC was somewhat sluggish with 13 points and 4 rebounds by Omari Spellman, a foreign player with 1 option. But because of Monroe, he got the victory. Even in the last game 7, if one of Spellman and Monroe explodes, it can be enough to aim for the championship.크크크벳
“Every time Spellman and I play, we become a completely different team,” Monroe said. Your opponent will have a hard time blocking it. Spellman and I have different styles. Everyone wants to do it in their own style. He expressed his confidence, saying, “I will be more afraid from the opponent’s point of view, and that led to today’s performance.”
