Professional basketball Seoul SK won a 2-point victory over Daegu Korea Gas Corporation 118-116 at the end of the third overtime on the 28th.

‘Miracle of 0.3 seconds’ came out. 0.3 seconds before the end of the second overtime, which was trailing 109-111, a free throw was awarded due to an opponent foul. In the process of competing for a rebound, KOGAS Jeong Hyo-geun pushed Jamil Warney. SK won after Warney calmly made two free throws to tie the game and went into the third overtime.

A similar situation occurred the next day. Leading Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation lost 74-76 in a game against Korea Gas Corporation on the 29th, but got two free throws due to an opponent foul with 0.8 seconds left at the end of the 4th quarter. Devon Scott of Korea Gas Corporation hit Daryl Monroe of KGC, who was jumping to shoot the last shot in a situation where players were crowded under the goal. Monroe made both free throws and the game went to overtime and KGC won 87-85. 스포츠토토

A foul declaration in professional basketball is often controversial if it can affect the outcome of a close match. During a close fight, especially when the game is about to end, the referee is bound to be more cautious about calling fouls. For this reason, there were very few cases where a foul was declared with less than one second left, unless the action was so obvious that a ‘slow screen’ was not needed. It is very unusual that such a ‘buzzer beater class foul’ was declared for two consecutive days.

Coincidentally, KOGAS was the loser in both of these matches. From the point of view of Korea Gas Corporation, which is looking to enter the top 6 from 9th place, it is a wasteful game enough to hit the ground. After the defeat on the 29th, Korea Gas Corporation coach Yoo Do-hoon expressed strong regret about the decision. It’s unusual enough to say “it’s the first time I’ve played basketball in several decades.” However, both fouls had only a difference in ‘degree’, but the act of contacting the opponent was captured. Whether it’s 0.8 seconds or 0.3 seconds, it’s before the end of the game, so a foul is a foul. KBL also concluded with sincerity despite the reconfirmation results.

Coincidentally, the winners of these two matches are both top teams. KGC is 1st and SK is 4th, a team that is leading the competition for the round of 6 this season. It was a strong team that showed concentration until the end and won a come-from-behind victory in overtime. It is fundamental to concentrate unconditionally until the final whistle blows.

A game of less than one second is highly likely to appear again in the future. Having caught the decisive foul that determined the game for two days in a row, it seems that KBL will continue to maintain consistency with a ‘hawk’s eye’ decision. The reason why there is noise even after making the right decision is because it is also a matter of trust that has been built up.
