Jameel Warney (199cm, C) scored his own points when it was important.
Seoul SK defeated Ulsan Hyundai Mobis 73-68 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 7th. Winning streak after losing streak. With 22 wins and 16 losses, it chased Hyundai Mobis (23 wins and 16 losses) in third place by half a game.
SK won the combined championship in the 2021-2022 season. Including the KBL Cup, the prelude to the 2021-2022 season, SK achieved a treble.
The leadership and detailed preparations of SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol played a big role. While maintaining the existing strength of the fast attack, the burden of attack, which was focused on a specific player, was dispersed with ‘Motion Offense’.
The change made by the coach was great, but the players’ abilities also played a big role. In particular, 1 option foreign player Jamil Warney found the majesty of the 2019-2020 season. In the 2021-2022 season, he played an average of 31 minutes and 44 seconds in 45 games in the regular league, with 22.1 points, 12.5 rebounds (attack 4.0), 3.1 assists and 1.1 steals, making SK ranked first in the regular league.
From the quarter-final playoffs, they showed greater power. With 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds (attack 4.3) and 3.7 assists in 32 minutes and 55 seconds per game, he defeated his opponent Goyang Orion (now Goyang Carrot). Even in the championship match, 22.6 points, 11.8 rebounds (attack 3.2) and 3.0 assists for an average of 35 minutes and 43 seconds in 5 games. It has established itself as the number one contributor to SK’s unified victory.
Ahn Young-joon (195cm, F), who was one of the main players of the team, went to the military after the 2021-2022 season, but SK is still strong. It’s big that Warnie endures. 23.2 points, 11.1 rebounds (3.2 offense), 2.8 assists, 1.1 blocked shots and 1.1 steals for an average of 31 minutes and 50 seconds in 37 games.
However, Gage Prim (205cm, C), whom Warney will meet in the match against Hyundai Mobis, is a formidable opponent. In particular, Prim’s power is an option that is hard to block even though you know it. Warnie must overcome Prim in a different style. He has to face Prim with his main specialty, flexible movements and sophisticated fingertip senses.
Unlike Prim, Warney is a flexible player. He can read the game a little more. His range of activities is also wider than Prim’s. So, he pulled Prim out of the 3-point line and passed sharp passes to Choi Seong-won (184cm, G) and Oh Jae-hyeon (185cm, G), who dug in without the ball. 바카라사이트
After confusing Prim with a pass, it started a 1v1. Scored near the rim with a post-up or scored with a step-back jumper. In the first quarter, he recorded 4 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 blocked shot. SK also took the early lead with 24-21.
Warney retired to the bench 1 minute 26 seconds before the end of the first quarter. He rested for quite some time. This is because Leon Williams (196cm, F) eased Warney’s burden by continuously participating in rebounding and attacking. Even without Warney, SK was able to lead by 6 points (29-23).
In addition, Prim committed the third foul 4 minutes and 48 seconds before the end of the third quarter. It was a boon for Warney. Warney, however, did not attack blindly. On the other side of Kim Seon-hyeong (187cm, G) and Choi Jun-yong (200cm, F), the defense drew attention. So, Kim Seon-hyung or Choi Jun-yong could attack a little easier. The reason for the synergistic effect of Kim Seon-hyung, Choi Jun-yong, and Warney.
