First showdown after the Avando debacle—Sono wins over Lee Jeong-hyun for chairman of the board

Goyang Sono defeated Anyang Jungkwanjang in a close game as the team fought back in light of Lens Abando’s injury.

Sono defeated Jeonggwanjang 93-86 in a home game of the 2023-2024 Korean Professional Basketball League regular season at 온라인카지노 Goyang Gymnasium on Sunday.

Abando, a Filipino player for Jeong Kwanjang, was seriously injured at the same stadium on March 28. While airborne, Chinanu Onuaku’s forearm knocked Abando off-center and onto the floor, where he was diagnosed with two broken vertebrae in his back, a sprained wrist ligament, a concussion, and a full four-week recovery.

While Onuaku was fined 3 million won by the KBL for the incident, Abando said he never received a direct apology and even threatened to sue.

The first time he met with Sono after this incident, Chung showed his fighting spirit on and off the court. When Onuaku missed two free throws and committed an offensive foul at the end of the second quarter, Chung’s fans on one side of the gym erupted in cheers.

Leading 46-45 at halftime, Jung Kwan Giang was unable to pull away from Sono’s fierce defense and went into the fourth quarter down 65-63. And in the fourth quarter, Lee exploded. Lee, who had 21 points and eight assists in the third quarter, was on fire in the fourth. He led the offense with six points and two assists in the first five minutes of the quarter, and then Onuaku found Robert Carter for an under-the-basket layup with just over three minutes to play to make it 81-79.

Onuaku scored the next two baskets to break the momentum of Chungkwanjang’s late comeback attempt centered on Robert Carter. Onuaku, who scored 12 points in the fourth quarter alone, finished with 22 points, 15 rebounds and six assists. Lee Jung-hyun also had a solid game with 32 points and 12 assists.

Unable to overcome the injury absence of foreign player Darryl Monroe, the Sono (11-21) dropped to eighth place with their third straight loss. On the other hand, Sono (11W20L), which started the second half of the season on a high note by grabbing its first game after the All-Star break, moved up to seventh place.

Meanwhile, leader Wonju DB extended its winning streak to three games with an 87-84 victory over Busan KCC on the road. At 26-6, DB extended its lead over second-place Seoul SK (22-9) to 3.5 games. Meanwhile, fifth-ranked KCC (16-13), which has been able to make the most of the injury absence of star forward Song Kyo-chang, saw its winning streak halted at three games.
