LG is sparring.

온라인카지노Changwon LG played a scrimmage against the University of Santo Tomas (UST) in the Philippines at LG Champions Park in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do on February 2. The result was an 80-49 victory.

LG set up a base camp in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do since July 31. During the two weeks in Icheon, the team will play eight practice games before traveling to Changwon for one week and then back to Icheon for two weeks. The second Icheon training camp will also feature eight practice matches.

However, there was a concern. There are no domestic big men. With foreign players joining the team in September, LG will have to play without a center before then. They could create new combinations, but they would have to play limited basketball. LG officials and head coach Cho Sang-hyun were also worried about that.

Lee Jae-do (180 cm, G), Lee Seung-woo (193 cm, F), Kim Jun-hyung (201 cm, F), Yang Hong-seok (195 cm, F), and Jung Hee-jae (196 cm, F) were included in the starting lineup. The lineup relies on Lee Jae-do, Yang Hong-seok, and Jung Hee-jae to anchor the frontcourt.

Yang Hong-seok and Jung Hee-jae seemed to have adjusted to UST’s modified zone defense. The two players on the right wing hit back-to-back three-pointers. After the three-pointers, LG ended the first quarter with a 22-7 lead.

Lee Kwan-hee (191 cm, G), Justin Gutang (188 cm, F), Jung In-duk (196 cm, F), Lim Dong-seop (198 cm, F), and Park Jun-hyung (195 cm, F) started the second quarter. A completely different lineup from the first quarter. At the beginning of the second quarter, LG couldn’t adjust to UST’s modified zone defense and quick offense. LG trailed 24-14 just two and a half minutes into the second quarter.

However, LG’s consistent shooting paid off. First, Lim Dong-seop hit a three from the right corner after a fast break, and then Lee Kwan-hee hit a three from the left corner with 3:49 left in the game and an extra free throw. LG went up 34-15 with 3:40 left in the second quarter.

At times, the team struggled against UST’s fast and powerful offense. However, they countered UST with quick passes, concise moves, and accurate finishing. The score was 45-23 at halftime.

In the third quarter, Han Sang-hyuk (182 cm, G) was added to the existing players, including Yang Hong-seok, Lee Seung-woo, Jung Hee-jae, and Jung In-duk. Yang Hong-seok scored back-to-back three-pointers to further increase UST’s lead. It was 51-23 in the first minute of the third quarter.

The height of UST’s foreign players posed a threat to LG. However, LG overcame it well with help defense and trap defense. The good shooting and concise movement were still there. They finished the third quarter with a score of 66-39.

Lee Jae-do, Lee Kwan-hee, Gutang, Lim Dong-seop, and Kim Jun-hyung started the fourth quarter. A combination of three ball handlers and two long shooters. It’s a lineup that can play to its strengths of speed and spacing, but is unstable when it comes to distribution.
