Pro basketball Suwon kt defeated Goyang Orion with the perfect performance of veteran transfer student Kim Dong-wook and advanced to the semifinals of the cup competition.

KT defeated Orion 85-69 in the second leg of Group B of the 2021 MG Saemaeul Geumgo KBL Cup held at Sangju Gymnasium in Gyeongbuk on the 16th.

In the first match, kt, which won the Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation 101-65, took first place in the group with two wins and advanced to the quarterfinals.

KT will compete with Seoul SK, 1st in Group A, to advance to the final at 4 pm on the 17th.

Orion, who won the cup by winning all four matches last year, did not advance to the tournament.

Kim Dong-wook, who changed into a kt uniform ahead of this season, led the team to victory by scoring the most 15 points among both teams, including three and three. Kim Dong-wook also recorded three assists.

On this day, Kim Dong-wook’s face never left a smile.

With both foreign players, caddy Laren and Mike Myers, kt played an early game with an advantage over Orion, which made a roster with only domestic players.

Orion, who was behind by more than 10 points, narrowed the gap as the domestic twin towers of Lee Seung-hyun and Lee Jong-hyun started functioning properly in the second quarter.

Lee Jong-hyun led the counterattack by scoring 11 points and two rebounds in the first half.

At the end of the second quarter, Orion made a comeback by tying Lee Dae-seong’s four free throws and Choi Hyun-min’s three stores, and finished the first half with a 41-35 lead.

Orion’s counterattack did not end there.

At the start of the third quarter, kt caught up with Kim Young-hwan’s three points and Heo Hoon’s two free throws, 40-41, 1 point difference.

Here, Kim Young-hwan put two free throws to make it 42-41.

Taking the lead again, kt caused an opponent’s turnover with an aggressive defense and mass-produced goals with a quick attack.

At the last minute, Myers put in an exciting one-handed dunk to finish the third quarter with kt leading 63-50.

In the 4th quarter, whenever Orion tightened the reins of pursuit, Kim Dong-wook scored and cut the pace.

Kim Dong-wook made a foreboding of KT’s victory by scoring three points to make 77-60 with about four minutes left.
