The 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball Ulsan Hyundai Mobis and Jeonju KCC’s 4th round confrontation held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 20th. A stranger was sitting on the KCC bench. It was Calvin Jeffrey Epistola (26, 180cm), a Filipino guard newly joined through the Asia Quarter System.
Epistola, who was recruited to solve the lack of a point guard in KCC, has been training only individually since July of last year. Therefore, it was expected that it would take some time before his debut. KCC held two practice games with Yonsei University on the 17th and 18th, during the All-Star Game break, to enhance Epistola’s game sense. And at an earlier time than expected, he was named in the 12-man entry.
Before the game against Hyundai Mobis, KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin said, “I was asked to join the entry, but I am trying to test it. The pros and cons are clear, so you have to look at the situation. And you have to come into contact with Korean basketball,” he said.
Epistola, who started the game from the bench, made his first appearance in the middle of the second quarter. However, he did not show much presence as if he was not in perfect condition yet. He attempted one field goal in 3 minutes and 33 seconds, then retired to the bench again.
At the end of the 4th quarter, when KCC’s defeat deepened, coach Jeon Chang-jin put in the Epistola again. After grabbing an offensive rebound, Epistola succeeded in scoring and reported the first goal on the KBL stage. Although the match has already tilted towards Hyundai Mobis, he also assisted the scoring of Lone University Hollis Jefferson and Jeon Jun-beom.
On this day, Epistola ran for 6 minutes and 53 seconds, recording 2 points, 1 rebound and 2 assists. Although he did not have enough time to show his ability due to his short playing time, it seemed that he still needed to improve his physical condition.
헤라카지노 After the game, coach Jeon Chang-jin left a short word about Epistola, saying, “It is still difficult to evaluate.”
Epistola, who had a short KBL debut match. Will he be able to quickly adapt to the team and resolve the absence of a point guard and help KCC rise to the top? First of all, recovery of condition seems to be the most important.
