38-point explosion against Hyundai Mobis. Over 30 points in 3G in a row for the first time in 23 seasons “I also went up one level” to Lee Hyun-joong’s performance on the youth national team.

“In fact, he is a foreign player. Even if he blocks, he scores 30 points.”

This is the evaluation that Cho Dong-hyun, coach of professional basketball team Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, gave to Lee Jeong-hyeon (Sono), who has risen to the top guard this season.

As the enemy general assessed, Lee Jung-hyun exploded for 38 points in the home game (102-87 win) against Hyundai Mobis in the 2023-2024 Jeong Kwan-Jang Professional Basketball Regular League held at Goyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 22nd.

Following the game against Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu (35 points) on the 17th and the game against SK on the 19th (34 points), the team scored over 30 points in three consecutive games.

In professional basketball, this is the first time a domestic player has scored more than 30 points in three consecutive games since Cho Seong-won in the 2000-2001 season. 안전놀이터

Lee Jung-hyun, who scored 22.6 points in 42 games this season, became the first domestic player in 13 years to average more than 20 points. Even if Lee Jeong-hyun does not score a single point in Sono’s remaining two games, the 20-point barrier will be exceeded.

The last time was Moon Tae-young (22.04 points) in the 2010-2011 season. If we narrow the scope to those from the domestic player draft, it goes back to Bang Seong-yoon (22.09 points) in the 2007-2008 season.

Although he has grown to the point of rewriting the history of professional basketball, Lee Jeong-hyun wants to develop further.

Forward Lee Hyun-joong (Illawarra), a teammate during his time with the youth national team, recently gave Lee Jeong-hyun a lot of encouragement.

Lee Hyun-joong, who headed to the Australian professional basketball league with the goal of advancing to the National Basketball Association (NBA), is currently playing in the Japanese B-League for a while as the league schedule ends.

Lee Hyeon-joong, who made his Japan debut wearing the Osaka Evesa uniform on the 20th, showed off his skills at a higher level with the Japanese players and scored 24 points.

Lee Jeong-hyeon said, “I watched the edited video of that game. I thought the level was really different. They scored with an extremely high success rate through various attack routes. The level has changed.”

He added, “Of course, I was stimulated. I’m not saying I’m going to challenge overseas right now, but I think I’ll have to work hard and work my way up slowly, one level at a time (like Lee Hyun-joong).”

Instead of knocking on the door of a domestic university or KBL, Lee Hyun-joong entered Davidson University, a member of the National Collegiate Sports Association (NCAA), and was exposed to advanced basketball from an early age.

Lee Jeong-hyun is growing up in a different path than Lee Hyun-joong.

Under the intensive training of Goyang Sono coach Kim Seung-gi, he is dominating the domestic stage.

Sono’s foreign player Chinanu Onuaku also acknowledges Lee Jung-hyun’s skills. According to Director Kim’s expression, only Lee Jeong-hyun can be found.

If Lee Jeong-hyun is on the court, he looks for Lee Jeong-hyun and passes, but if Lee Jeong-hyun is not there, he rarely passes the ball to other domestic guards.

Onuaku also played in the NBA and also has experience in the Spanish league, which is considered the second highest level league after the United States.

Lee Jeong-hyeon said, “We trust each other. We have a lot of competitions during training and games, and we have the trust that it’s okay even if we make mistakes. I’m thankful that we always fight and protect each other under the goal.”

Onuaku recorded 27 points and 23 rebounds on this day, single-handedly defeating Hyundai Mobis’ Big Man Jin, who was held up by Gage Prim. 토토사이트 추천
