This is a special order that was dropped in the early stages of the 2023-2024 Jeong Kwan-Jang professional basketball regular league. Seoul SK foreign center Jamil Warney’s performance is just as fierce. SK is on an undefeated streak of three consecutive wins in the first half of the season, thanks to Warney’s all-out performance.
SK played against CheongKwanJang on the 21st and KT on the 22nd, followed by a victory against Goyang Sono on the 24th. 90-79, it was a comfortable victory.
Warney is leading the early sprint of the SK League. Warney boasts an average of 34.0 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 3.7 assists through three games this season. The field goal success rate is 61.3%. He also scored 30 points, 17 rebounds, and 5 assists against Sono.
Warney, who has only played for SK since the 2019-2020 season, was selected as the Best Foreign Player (MVP) in all seasons except for one season in the 2020-2021 season. What makes Warney’s presence under the goal even brighter this season is Oh Se-geun, another center that SK recruited from the previous season’s winning team, CheongKwanJang. When the opposing defenders focus on marking Warney, who moves forward, Oh Se-geun follows and disperses him here and there.
Warney met with reporters after the Sono game and said, “Last season, the defense was focused on Kim Sun-hyung and me, so it took a lot of stamina. With Oh Se-geun joining this season, his stamina can be conserved. “Because Oh Se-geun plays so smartly, I think his hands and feet will get better as time goes by,” he said.
The teams facing SK are doing their best to block Warny. It is an attempt to minimize scoring power through modified defensive tactics. In the game on the 24th, Sono coach Kim Seung-gi noticed Warney’s tendency to control the game by catching the ball at the central three-point line and made changes to the defense. When Warney headed toward the bottom of the goal, active players such as Choi Hyun-min and Ahn Jeong-hoon quickly formed a double team to catch up토토사이트, lowering the accuracy of the floater shot.
Coach Kim expressed regret after the game, saying, “The ‘trap defense’ against Warnie was okay, but we still gave him 30 points.” SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “If the opponent plays defense like this, I think we should use Kim Sun-hyung and Oh Se-geun 2-on-2 instead of Warney’s attack option.”
Jeong Kwan-jang and KT, who met Warney on the 21st and 22nd, also used the ‘sagging defense’ tactic of focusing on preventing penetration instead of giving up defending outside shots. Katy coach Song Young-jin assigned tall players, including Paris Bass, to Warney, but Warney took his time, scoring close to 30 points with only two-point shots. Even though he knows, he can’t stop it, which is what Warney is like right now.
