There was a change at the KBL leadership position after last games. Round 40 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Anyang KGC (30-15). They were edged by tenth ranked Sonic Boom KT (14-30) 69-66 on Sunday night. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Sonic Boom KT outrebounded Anyang KGC 44-32 including 18 on the offensive glass. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Leon Williams (203-86, college: Ohio) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points and 18 rebounds and international point guard Jae-Do Lee (180-91) who added 10 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists during the contest. At the losing side American center David Simon (208-82, college: IPFW) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Sonic Boom KT maintains tenth position with 14-30 record. Anyang KGC at the other side still keeps top place with 15 games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Samsung Th. who have the same record. Anyang KGC will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest and make it back to the top of the standings. Sonic Boom KT will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked ET Land Elephants in Inchon.
Leading Samsung Thunders (30-15) recorded its fifteenth loss in Seoul. Hosts were defeated by ninth ranked KCC Egis (15-30) 95-85. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Samsung Thunders. The winners were led by American forward Andre Emmett (196-82, college: Texas Tech) who scored that evening 33 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Kyo-Chang Song supported him with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. Even a double-double of 34 points (!!!) and 11 rebounds by the former international forward Ricardo Ratliffe (203-89, college: Missouri) did not help to save the game for Samsung Thunders. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. KCC Egis maintains ninth position with 15-30 record. Samsung Thunders at the other side still keep top place with 15 games lost. They share the position with Anyang KGC. KCC Egis will play against higher ranked Dongbu Promy (#4) in Wonju in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Samsung Thunders will have a break next round.
