Commentator Lee Gyu-seop, who relayed the 3rd overtime, recalled the great bloody battle during the 5th overtime during his active career.

The 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Seoul SK and Daegu Korea Gas Corporation’s 4th round confrontation held at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium on the 28th. SK won 118-116 after a close match that went to the third overtime. This match was the 7th overtime game in KBL history.

As the game went into third overtime, there was one game that came to mind. It was a confrontation between Seoul Samsung and Wonju Dongbu (now Wonju DB) at Jamsil Gymnasium on January 21, 2009. This day’s game remains the first and last 5th overtime fight in KBL. The duration of the game is 3 hours and 17 minutes. It is the longest time in KBL history. After a bloody battle, Dongbu won 135-132.

At the site of the head-to-head confrontation between SK and KOGAS, there was a person who personally experienced the 5th extended bloody battle in 2009. It was Lee Kyu-seop, a commentator at SPOTV. Commentator Lee Kyu-seop, who belonged to Samsung, recorded 17 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal in 45 minutes and 45 seconds.

Commentator Lee Kyu-seop, whom we met after the game, said, “At that time, honestly, I wanted a decision to be made quickly, whether we win or the opponent wins. Because it was the 5th extension, I was so hectic that director Ahn Jun-ho was confused by the 3rd extension. In the 5th overtime, I half wanted to win and half wanted to finish the game. At the time, I remember that both Lee Sang-min and former coach Lee Sang-min were sent off for five fouls. So, even considering that it was the 5th extension, the playing time was not that long,” he recalled at the time. 메이저사이트

It was, of course, the first time for commentator Lee Gyu-seop, who started commentating this season, to broadcast the 3rd extension. The professional commentary was well received by the fans, but there were also small mistakes as if tired of the 3rd overtime game. Gas Corporation was confused with Ginseng Corporation, and the referee’s kickball signal was misunderstood as a foul.

“It was difficult to explain. It was hard on the body, but fun on the eyes. My throat was not in good condition due to a cold, but it seems that everything was good except for my throat condition (laughs). The concentration of the players shown in the second overtime was astounding. Kim Seon-hyung’s 47 points was a performance that was difficult for a domestic player to show. However, I am worried that I will be able to play tomorrow (29th) because the main players such as Lee Dae-seong, Lee Dae-heon, Jamil Warney, and Choi Jun-yong have a lot of playing time.” Commentator Kyu-seop Lee said:

As it was a close match throughout the game, there was no choice but to have a lot of playing time for SK and Gas Corporation’s main players. Lee Dae-seong digested the most time of 51 minutes and 51 seconds among both teams, followed by Choi Jun-yong (50 minutes and 14 seconds), Warney (49 minutes and 30 seconds), and Jeong Hyo-geun (49 minutes and 3 seconds). SK and Gas Corporation both have back-to-back games scheduled for the 29th, so they need to be extra careful about injuries.

Commentator Lee Gyu-seop said, “Up to the second overtime, it’s okay, but from the third overtime, both teams have to worry about injuries. There were almost no substitutions during overtime as both teams wanted to win. As your stamina decreases, stability in the landing motion decreases. And because your legs move one beat later than you think, injuries can come. It is fortunate that today (28th) ended in the 3rd overtime, but if it continued to the 4th overtime, the injury might have occurred. There was definitely a blow to the players to that extent,” he said.
