Wonju DB’s chances of advancing to the playoffs (PO) are gradually disappearing.
DB, led by acting coach Kim Joo-seong, suffered a 66-84 defeat against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in the regular league of the ‘2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball’ held at Wonju Sports Complex on the 12th. On this day, veteran guard Park Chan-hee struggled with 12 assists, but lost with a big difference in 3-point shots (2 DB, 9 Mobis).
DB, who suffered two consecutive losses to Goyang Carrot (91-96 loss) and Jeonju KCC (64-84 loss), recorded three consecutive losses with this loss, maintaining 8th place with 17 wins and 30 losses. With 7 games remaining in the regular league, there is still a possibility for DB to advance to the PO. However, it is difficult to overturn as the game gap with 6th place KCC, which is the marginal line for entering the PO, is wide by 4.5 games. 메이저놀이터
If Carrot, who is in 5th place, fails to pay the remaining 1 billion won in special dues to KBL by the 31st, the right to advance to the PO will be forfeited, and the 7th place team can advance to the PO. There are currently 3 games left. Rather, it is being chased by 9th place Daegu Korea Gas Corporation by 0.5 games.
DB rose to second place with 6 wins and 3 losses in the first round, raising the possibility of spring basketball (the 2019-2020 season ended in first place in the regular league due to Corona 19) after 5 years since the 2017-2018 season. However, after suffering from various bad factors such as injuries, it was very difficult to advance to the PO this season as well.
