Kang Sang-jae (30, 200cm, forward) contributed to the winning streak by recording his second double-double of the season.
Kang Sang-jae recorded a double-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists, including two 3-point shots, while playing for 32 minutes and 40 seconds, the most in the team, in the 2022-23 SKT A. Pro Basketball Suwon KT match at Wonju Sports Complex on the 23rd.
The DB where Kang Sang-jae played an active role was Lee Seon Albano (17 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists), Lenard Freeman (14 points, 8 rebounds), and Dewan Hernandez (11 points, 3 rebounds). After a close match with 80-76, he won a thrilling victory by 4 points and succeeded in winning 2 consecutive wins for the first time since the acting Kim Joo-seong system.
Kang Sang-jae, who was included in the starting lineup and started the game, broke through to the base line starting at 45 degrees to the left, where there was space inside the KT defense inside the first minute, and made a layup without difficulty, announcing a cheerful start.
Kang Sang-jae, who announced that he was in a fresh condition despite the congestion in his right eye, continued to score at every juncture regardless of the inside and outside, helping DB to maintain the lead.
He threw 6 3-pointers and scored 2, scored through various attack routes such as breakthrough and jumper, and contributed to the victory by producing the second most points after Albano, who operated 17 points. Although his field goal success rate was somewhat lacking at 36.8%, he added to the role of providing chances to his teammates due to active attacking.
In addition, he took a lot of activity in defense and filled the void of Kim Jong-gyu, whose playing time was limited due to injury. In particular, he put a lot of effort into the rebound fight.
He was the only player on the team to kick double-digit rebounds and contributed to the fight for air supremacy, which was trailing 40-44. Among them, 5 offensive rebounds were ‘those things’ that can indirectly confirm his mentality that has changed since the acting Kim regime.
Kang Sang-jae is one of the players representing the golden generation. Kang Sang-jae, who graduated from Korea University, was promising as a tall forward, but in the 2016 rookie draft, after Choi Jun-yong (Seoul SK) and Lee Jong-hyun (Goyang Carrot), he was selected by Incheon Etland (now Daegu Korea Gas Corporation) and debuted in KBL. .
The first rounder of the draft at the time, entering his 30s, is still active. Choi Seong-mo (Suwon KT), Park Ji-hoon (Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation), Kim Jin-yu (Goyang Carrot), excluding Cheon Ki-beom (4th, Fukushima Firebons), Kim Chul-wook (8th, Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation), and Han Jun-young (9th, Jeonju KCC). ), etc., are playing an active role like Altoran, going back and forth between the main and backup.
Choi Jun-yong is the core of Seoul SK, and Lee Jong-hyun is continuing his presence as a backup center in Goyang Carrot. 스포츠토토
Kang Sang-jae has continued his career so far, not showing as much as expected since his joining.
In the 2018-19 season, he produced an average double-digit score (11.8 points), but it was a number full of shortcomings. And two years ago, Kang Sang-jae joined DB through a 2-to-1 trade. Kang Sang-jae, who returned from Sangmu, recorded 9.3 points and 6.2 rebounds in 38 games last season. The rebound was a career high number.
However, due to the existence of Kim Jong-kyu, something lacking could not be erased. This season was no different. He got past the third round without having a huge presence. The team also seldom performed as expected due to injuries to key players.
As a result, former head coach Lee Sang-beom decided to resign voluntarily, and now, with Kim Joo-seong acting as manager, Kang Sang-jae is producing an average of 16.8 points and stands tall as a key scorer. DB recorded 3 wins and 2 losses in the last 5 games played under the acting system of Kim, and Kang Sang-jae is showing the most different change from before and acting as a signal for a rebound.
He was evaluated as an attractive player. Entering his own 6th season, he is replacing the question marks that surrounded him with his exclamation marks. He is reborn as a key player along with Lee Seon Albano, who is signaling a perfect adaptation to the KBL by playing over 32 minutes on average.
Kang Sang-jae’s explosion is like a sweet rain to DB, whose performance is fluctuating due to Doo Kyung-min’s injury and Kim Jong-gyu’s chronic injury. Concentration and fighting spirit. It seems to be another weapon added to his refined skills.
