Kang Sang-jae has completely transformed.
Wonju DB Kang Sang-jae recorded a double-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Pro Basketball Suwon KT match held at Wonju Sports Complex on the 23rd. In addition to Kang Sang-jae, Lee Seon Albano (17 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists) played an active part in DB, winning 80-76.
Kang Sang-jae said, “I am fortunate to be able to run a winning streak. Didn’t (Kim) Jong-gyu come back after recovering? Now, all that remains is to show a better game.”
After acting coach Kim Joo-seong took over the baton, Kang Sang-jae has been playing a big role every day. When he was coach Lee Sang-beom, he averaged only 8.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 17 games, but after being replaced by acting manager Kim Joo-seong, he averaged 16.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 5 games. 스포츠토토
“There was a big change in the team in the new year. Many key players are currently out with injuries. Among the players who played the game, I was almost the best. (Kim Joo-seong) The acting manager also asked for a lot of responsibility. He seems to have improved his performance because he took responsibility for both offense and defense.” Sangjae Kang says:
The most notable thing about Kang Sang-jae’s record is the assist. After the command tower was changed to acting coach Kim Joo-seong, the average of three has risen vertically. He spent more time in possession of the ball, and it was a result of his excellent linker role on the perimeter.
Regarding this, Kang Sang-jae said, “Since (two) Kyung-min’s older brother fell out, most of them are young players, except for Albano. So, there is a shortage in terms of game management. The acting coach also ordered me to play the role of a middle leg while owning a lot of the ball. As I play with a lot of balls, my attack success rate goes up, and it seems to have a good effect in many ways.”
