KCC comes from behind to beat KT in the fourth quarter…one step closer to punching a ticket to the Top 6

Busan KCC took a step closer to qualifying for the sixth round of the playoffs with a win over Suwon KT, a team that has struggled this season.

KCC pulled off a fourth-quarter comeback to defeat KT 101-94 in a regular-season home game of the 2023-2024 Jungkwanjang Professional Basketball League at Busan Sajik Gymnasium 온라인카지노 on Feb. 2.

Led by Choi Jun-yong’s 26 points and Heo Woong’s 22 points, KCC won for the first time against KT this season after three straight losses. The victory also marked their first win against their former club this season.

With 23 wins and 19 losses, fifth-ranked KCC widened its gap to 6.5 games over seventh-ranked Daegu KOGAS (18-27), further boosting its chances of making the playoffs.

Trailing 68-77 after three quarters, KCC launched a blitzkrieg in the fourth quarter to pull off the upset. Choi Jun-yong scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and Heo Woong scored 13 points to lead the comeback.

KT cut the deficit to eight points in the final minute, but KCC’s Ragan-ah (16 points, 14 rebounds) sealed the victory with 51 seconds left in regulation when he scored on an offensive rebound and made two free throws to make it 101-92.

KT’s momentum took a hit with the one loss after a seven-game winning streak.

Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, who are battling KCC for fifth and sixth place, were swept by last-place Seoul Samsung. The Hyundai Mobis fell to Samsung 77-92 on the road at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium.

The 24-21 loss dropped them to sixth place and kept them six games back of seventh-place KOGAS.

Samsung, led by Kofi Coburn (30 points, 17 rebounds), jumped out to a comfortable 20-point halftime lead.

Hyundai Mobis cut the deficit to 73-82 with just over four minutes left in the fourth quarter, but the margin was too much to overcome.

Leader Wonju DB held on for a hard-fought 75-74 victory over KOGAS at home at Wonju General Gymnasium.

KOGAS closed to within one point, 74-75, with 1:16 left in the fourth quarter on a three-pointer by Samjosef Belangel (29 points) and a two-pointer by Duvan Maxwell (10 points).

DB threatened to pull away after a Dedrick Lawson (22 points) turnover on the ensuing possession. However, Kim Jong-kyu (12 points) blocked a two-point shot by Park Bong-jin of KOGAS with three seconds left to secure the win.

DB won its fourth straight game and remained at the top of the standings.
