Hyundai Mobis collapses after Prim’s exit.

KCC lost 82-91 to leading DB, 'Lagona 23 points', defeated Cheong Kwan-jang with 81-75... Heo Woong 9 assists.

Professional basketball Wonju DB took the lead by defeating Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, which suffered from consecutive bad news such as Park Moo-bin leaving the court due to injury and Gage Prim being sent off.

DB defeated Hyundai Mobis 91-82 in the 2023-2024 CheongKwanJang Professional Basketball regular league away game held at Ulsan Dongcheon Gymnasium on the 2nd.

DB, with 29 wins and 9 losses, widened the gap with second place Changwon LG (24 wins, 13 losses) to four and a half games, further increasing its chances of winning the regular season.

On the other hand, 6th place Hyundai Mobis (19 wins, 18 losses) had its 3-game winning streak cut off.

Hyundai Mobis faced bad news when rookie Park Moo-bin, who was revitalizing the offense with aggressive breakthroughs, felt back pain and left the court about 3 minutes before the end of the second quarter.

Still, Hyundai Mobis, who reorganized their line with Miguel Andre Okzon at the center, competed on equal terms with DB, trailing by one point until the middle of the third quarter.

However, the flow of the game was shaken when Prim, who was called a technical foul while protesting the referee about 4 minutes before the end of the third quarter when the team was down 54-55, received another technical foul while protesting about a minute later.

After Prim left the court with an excited expression, Hyundai Mobis, whose mood had calmed down, quickly collapsed.

Hyundai Mobis, who was dragged by a double-digit score by allowing 15 points in about 3 minutes until the end of the 3rd quarter, was unable to overcome this gap in the 4th quarter and gave up the game.

In DB, foreign player Didric Lawson led the way to victory with 30 points and 15 rebounds.

Center Kim Jong-gyu also did his part with 22 points and 5 rebounds, while Kang Sang-jae and Lee Seon Albano added 13 and 11 points.

For Hyundai Mobis, Kebe Aluma played hard with 25 points and 17 rebounds.

Busan KCC defeated Anyang Jeonggwanjang 81-75 at home.

KCC (20 wins, 15 losses), ranked 5th with 3 consecutive wins, trailed Suwon KT and Seoul SK (23 wins, 13 losses), tied for 3rd place, by 2 and a half games, raising expectations for a full-fledged jump to the top ranking at the end of the season.

On the other hand, Cheong Kwan-Jang, who suffered three consecutive losses, slipped to a tie for 8th place along with Goyang Sono (13 wins, 24 losses).

In KCC, La Gun-ah, who consistently attempted 2-on-2 attacks with guards such as Heo Woong and Calvin Jeffrey Epistola, was recorded as the team's highest scorer with 23 points.

While leading forward Choi Jun-yong left the team due to an injury at the end of the second quarter, Song Kyo-chang and Lee Seung-hyeon played the third and fourth quarters without rest, minimizing the gap in height.

Heo Woong, who is in charge of the outside defense, scored only 4 points in this game, but saved his teammates by providing 9 assists.

At CheongKwanJang, Seongwon Choi scored 26 points, including 4 3-pointers, but it was not enough to overcome KCC.
