After winning the Korean Professional Basketball Association title in the 2022-23 season, KGC will start the new season by competing in the William Jones Cup. Despite the departure of leading scorers Oh Se-geun and Moon Sung-gon, the team is looking to add new faces to its roster.
New foreign player Duvon Maxwell had a double-double with 22 points and 15 rebounds, while Park Ji-hoon showed his versatility with nine points, 12 assists, and three steals. Brian Griffin and Jun-Won Chung added 10 points apiece. Newcomer Jung Hyo-geun also had a solid game with nine points and five rebounds.
Initially, the Jones Cup was scheduled to feature the Korean National Basketball Team. However, due to the Olympic qualifiers in Paris, last season’s KBL champions KGC were given the opportunity.
KGC and Taiwan’s national A and B teams will be joined by Qatar, Japan, the Philippines, Iran, the UAE, and the United States. KGC will play the second game against Iran on the 14th. The tournament will be played as a pool league.
