The Sono’s new bus made traveling easier for the players and contributed to their victory.
Goyang Sono traveled to Daegu on Tuesday afternoon for their 2023-2024 regular season game against Daegu Korea Gas Corporation at Daegu Gymnasium. It is an arduous road of well over 300 kilometers from Goyang to Daegu, but this trip was made easier by the arrival of a new team bus.
Sono spent 300 million won to purchase the Woosung bus to help the team travel. The 28-seater bus was converted into a 25-seater, and Sono invested heavily in the team bus, adding footrests for the players’ comfort.토토사이트
Did the club’s investment pay off? In their first away game with the new bus, SONO hit 17 three-pointers in a comfortable 100-90 victory over Gasworks.
“I love the bus,” said Sono coach Kim Seung-ki, “and the environment is great. The chairman cares a lot and makes it easy for us to play basketball. I just have to do my job. It’s my job to organize the players, and it’s my job to develop them. It’s not about winning, it’s about leading the team in the future.”
Lee Jung-hyun, who had 23 points, four rebounds, and seven assists on the day, laughed and said, “The bus had a lot to do with the victory.”
“The bus is a lot different from the previous bus. The buses for the past two seasons were similar, but now the seats are wider and there are additional footrests, so you can stretch your legs.” “Because of the long travel time, my legs swell a lot when I get off and go on an expedition. This time, when I came down from Daegu, I used the footrest for the first time, and it was very comfortable. I want to ride it often,” he joked.
Meanwhile, after the match with Gasworks, Sono traveled back to Goyang on a new bus to play a home game against Busan KCC at the Goyang Sono Arena on the 12th.
