‘Hwoong’s 31’ KCC scores season-high 117 points to beat Sono

Busan KCC, missing two key players, showed off its firepower and accelerated its march toward the sixth round of the playoffs.

KCC overcame a disadvantage of missing Song Kyo-chang and Choi Jun-yong to injury to defeat Goyang Sono 117-85 in the 2023-2024 Korean Basketball Association away game at Goyang Sono Arena on Friday.

KCC’s 117 points were its most this season. The previous season high was 116 points set by Ulsan Hyundai Mobis on Jan. 28 against 스포츠토토 Seoul Samsung.

Heo Woong scored 31 points, including five 3-pointers, while Ragan-ah added 26 points and Lee Seung-hyun had 20 points to lead the way.

KCC secured the win after losing four straight away games to stay in fifth place with a 24-20 record.

KCC was without key players Song Kyo-chang with a toe injury and Choi Jun-yong with a left wrist injury. However, KCC led 63-42 at halftime behind Ragan-ah, Heo Woong, and Lee Seung-hyun.

SONO held Chinanu Onaaku to four points in the first half and struggled with mid-range shots from Jeon Sung-hyun and Kim Ji-hoo.

In the third quarter, KCC’s long-range shooting came alive. After making six three-pointers in the first half, KCC hit six in the third quarter alone, with two from Heo Woong and one each from Lee Ho-hyun, Ragan-ah, Lee Seung-hyun, and Kwak Jung-hoon.

Down by 30 points, 94-64, entering the fourth quarter, KCC scored its largest lead of the season, 117-82, on a layup following a steal by Lee Joo-young with 20 seconds left in regulation.

Seoul SK eased into the East Asian Super League quarterfinals with a 105-76 home win over Ulsan Hyundai Mobis at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul.
