Daryl Monroe, a foreign player who has played and demonstrated leadership since 2021 at Anyang Jeonggwanjang in professional basketball, will leave the team.
“Today is the last day with the honorary captain Monroe,” Jeong said on the 19th through a social network service. “I am truly grateful to Monroe for sharing good memories as the main player of the team for three seasons.”
Chung will play a home game against Samsung in Seoul at 7 p.m. at Anyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi Province. Chung plans to set up a place where Monroe and her fans meet for the last time after the game.
Monroe, who joined Jeonggwanjang in 2021, has been loved by club fans for her unique smart play and veteran leadership.
However, he was out of power last month when he complained of pain in his hamstring.
Monroe stepped back on the court through an away game in the East Asian Super League on Tuesday, but she also showed up in front of fans at the All-Star game in professional basketball held on Sunday. She wore a referee’s uniform instead of a uniform and blew the whistle for about a minute to make people laugh.
Monroe, who was expected to return immediately and give the team a boost, was injured again during team training the day after the All-Star Game.
In a related development, Kim Sang-sik, head coach of the Chungcheong Provincial Government, said ahead of the 2023-2024 away game against Goyang Sono, a professional basketball team in Chungcheong Province, at Goyang Gymnasium on Wednesday, “I want to wait for you if I can. However, there is no guarantee that I will be back properly in a month,” adding, “I think we should make an important decision for the sake of Korean players.”
Coach Kim has been worried since the beginning of this season as foreign player Omari Spelman, who won the championship game last season, failed to take care of his body and was sluggish amid various injuries.
Last month, Robert Carter was brought in to fill Spellman’s vacancy for now, but this time, as Monroe was injured, Chung rarely had full strength.
Chung, who rose to second place with nine wins and four losses at the beginning of the season, also fell to ninth place (11 wins and 21 losses). 스포츠토토
