Ahn Jung-wook played 34 minutes and 26 seconds in his debut game. It is the first time in 10 years that a domestic player selected in the draft played more than 34 minutes in his debut game.
Goyang Carrot won 106-84 with 21 3-pointers in a home game against Seoul SK held at Goyang Gymnasium on the 17th.
Jeon Seong-hyun (26 points, 6 3-point shots, 7 assists), 메이저놀이터 Lee Jung-hyun (22 points, 6 3-point shots, 4 rebounds, 7 assists), and Didric Lawson (22 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists) stood out, and Ahn Jung-wook, who first appeared on a professional court, made a 3-point shot. He scored 4 (13 points) and played a surprising role.
Ahn Jung-wook wore a Carrot uniform with the 14th pick in the rookie draft held last September.
Ahn Jung-wook, who had little presence until his junior year at Sungkyunkwan University, showed off his scoring ability by recording 14.7 points in an average of 34 minutes and 44 seconds in this year’s college basketball league.
By his senior year in college, he was attempting a 3-pointer, but was not allowed to throw it. This is because the 3-point shot success rate was 10.5% (2/19) based on the college league and MBC times.
By his senior year, his confidence and a lot of practice brought his 3-point shooting percentage to the 30% level. He shot 30.8% (16/52) in the collegiate league and 35.3% (6/17) in the MBC doubles.
Ahn Jung-wook, who devoted himself to 3-point shooting practice even after joining Carrot, succeeded in making 4 3-point shots in his debut game.
The rookie players nominated in the draft made 4+ 3-pointers in their debut game: Cho Sang-hyun (4, 27 points), Kim Young-soo (4, 14 points), Doo Kyung-min (4, 18 points), Kim Ji-hoo (5, 15 points), which is the 5th overall.
Among Ahn Jung-wook’s records, what stands out more than his four 3-pointers is his playing time of 34 minutes and 26 seconds.
It is not uncommon for new players selected in the recent draft to play more than 30 minutes in their debut game.
Of course, it often came out when rookies spent the offseason preparing for the season opener after being drafted. However, since the 2012-2013 season, when you can debut immediately after the draft holding period has changed, there is only one case where you have played for more than 34 minutes like Ahn Jung-wook beyond 30 minutes.
Kim Jong-beom, who was a member of Orion, played 41 minutes and 12 seconds in a head-to-head match against Changwon LG held at the Goyang Gymnasium on December 12, 2012. The game was a close match that went to the second overtime. Four of the Orion players have been on the court for more than 40 minutes, and one of them is Kim Jong-beom.
Kim Jong-beom recorded 11 points, 3 rebounds and 4 steals in his debut game.
For your reference, one of the foreign players who was a member of Orion at the time, Leon Williams, was a member of SK in the game 10 years later. Even if the playing time was reduced from 40 minutes 14 seconds to 9 minutes 40 seconds, it is possible to know how long Williams has been living in the KBL.
Kim Jong-bum’s time of 41 minutes and 12 seconds is the only record that exceeded 40 minutes among players selected in the rookie draft. However, if you expand the scope, another name will come out. Moon Kyung-eun holds the record for the longest playing time in his debut game at 41 minutes and 27 seconds, and Moon Tae-young also played 41 minutes and 5 seconds from his debut game.
