Spellman, who overcame opponent checks, is being reborn as a complete foreign player.
Anyang KGC Omari Spellman (25, 203 cm) made a big success with 26 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists in the 5th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Wonju DB held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 9th. In addition to Spellman, Byun Jun-hyung and Oh Se-geun also played their part, KGC won 80-70 and ran for 6 consecutive wins.
Spellman said, “The schedule was tight because there were a lot of games recently. The players were very tired and tired, but I am happy that we won. Byun Jun-hyung played a great role, and Oh Se-geun held up well under the goal. Yang Hee-jong also스포츠토토 did his part. It is a victory that all team members achieved together.”
DB operated a triple post leading to Malcolm Thomas, Kim Jong-kyu, and Gam Sang-jae to maximize the advantage in height. Spellman struggled in the second quarter, but scored in the second half and led the team to victory. Rather than insisting on attacking under the goal, the main thing was to solve the game focusing on the outside shot, which is an advantage.
“It was the first lineup I saw. But we tried to focus on our basketball. Our strong point is the 3-point shot from the perimeter. And Byun Jun-hyung finishes well after breaking through. We harmonized well as a team, and playing our basketball was a factor in overcoming the triple post.” Spellman said.
Most of the teams facing KGC leave Spellman’s defense to a domestic player. This is because he prefers to use perimeter attacks rather than post-ups from under the goal. Spellman was once unable to play well against opponents, but recently he has been showing off his scoring ability regardless of matchup opponents. On this day as well, he overcame Kang Sang-jae’s defense and successfully attacked to his heart’s content.
In response, Spellman said, “I didn’t try to change my game plan. He played the game the same way as any player in front of him. Today (9th) also did not choose (Lenard) Freeman and Kang Sang-jae. I tried to solve it that way because I have strengths in 3-point shooting and perimeter attacks. Usually, when there is a mismatch with a domestic player, it goes under the goal, but I did not do that and tried to play my own.”
