LG defeated Seoul SK 76-67 and rose to third place in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball regular league away game held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 15th.

On this day, Yu Yu-sang scored 15 points, including 4 3-pointers, and also grabbed 5 rebounds, giving a perfect performance.

LG coach Cho Sang-hyun gave a favorable review of Yoo Sang-sang, who is mentioned as a candidate for the Rookie of the Year Award, saying, “To me, he is a player who is always lacking,” but added, “He should definitely receive (the award).

He has high invisible contributions such as defensive ability.”

Coach Cho said, “Today, I am entrusting the defense of the opponent’s key players, such as blocking Heo Il-young (SK),” and added, “Rookies Moon Jeong-hyun (KT, 1st place) and Park Moo-bin (Hyundai Mobis, 2nd place) are also good players, but they are ranked 3rd.

“The person I selected, Yugi-sang, is doing an amazing job.

I think I chose him really well,” he said with a smile.

When asked, ‘Who is the player with the best shot in LG?’, Coach Cho joked by picking himself, and said, “It depends on the condition of the day, but Lee Kwan-hee, Lee Jae-do, and Yoo Yu-sang are also good.”

LG, which rose to third place even without foreign player Assem Marey, who is suffering from a knee injury, is now taking a break due to the 2025 International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asia Cup qualifiers.

Coach Cho said, “Yang Hong-seok is joining the national team, so he will be absent from the team.

We plan to give veteran players such as Lee Jae-do enough rest,” and added, “The best thing is how Marey comes back.

“We will get back in touch with Marey through the practice games we have scheduled,” he said.

Regarding the reason for the victory against SK on this day, Coach Cho said, “The other players performed well in a situation where the team was in crisis, and we achieved the result.”

“We were able to win because Yoo Ki-sang, Justin Gutang, and Yang Hong-seok played basketball,” he analyzed.
