Choi Sung-won, who scored 20 points in Daegu this season, “I’ve been shooting better lately”

Choi Sung-won (28, 184 cm) scored 20 points in Game 2 against Daegu, following up his Game 1 performance.

Anyang Jungkwanjang won 98-93 against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation in the second round of the 2023-2024 Jungkwanjang Pro Basketball at Daegu Gymnasium on Nov. 21.

After scoring 20 points and grabbing four rebounds with a 50 percent three-point shooting percentage (4-of-8) in the first round away game against KOGAS, Choi Sung-won contributed 20 points and 10 assists with a 60 percent three-point shooting percentage (6-of-10) in the second round to help his team win.

After the game, Choi expressed his disappointment with the victory, saying, “We started off well, but we made a lot of defensive mistakes in the middle of the game, so we had a high-scoring game, but we made too many mistakes than our opponent, so I think we need to reflect on that.”

Choi Sung-won, who was selected as the player of the match in the second round after the first round, said, “I don’t think there was anything that went well in Daegu, but I think it went well because my shooting has improved recently. I’m glad I did it with confidence,” he said, “It was worse because I was trying to be motivated. Every time I did, the manager and coach caught me. Thanks to them, I think I got through it,” he said of his 20 points.

Duvan Maxwell played his final game on the day after filling in for Omari Spellman during the seven-week injury absence.

“We took a picture together,” Choi said. I think the reason we were at the top of the table was because of Maxwell. I wanted to win his last game and send him off with a smile on my face, so I’m glad it happened,” he said, expressing his gratitude to Maxwell.

“I think our team will score more because Spellman is a scorer,” Choi said of Maxwell’s departure and Spellman’s arrival. We’ve always been criticized for our weakness in three-point shooting, but I think this will be complemented by Spellman’s arrival.”

With the win, Chung extended their winning streak to six games away from home.

“At first, we kept winning on the road, so I think we got stronger on the road. I apologize to the Anyang fans for not being able to win more at home. I hope they will continue to support us so that we can continue to win,” he said to the Anyang fans.
