Korean Basketball League
Jeonju KCC Egis at Goyang Orion Orions
7:00 p.m. Friday, Goyang Stadium, Goyang, Gyeonggi
Clinching two wins in the finals after Wednesday’s game, the Goyang Orion Orions’ chance to bring KBL trophy home is becoming more probable.
Orions head coach Choo Il-seung’s plan to not just restrain Emmett but also contain other players from scoring has proven to be successful in the third game, as no one other than Emmett scored above 10 points. If Choo’s strategy stays on course in the fourth game of the series tonight, the Orions should not have much problem to claim yet another victory.
U-23 Friendly Match

8 p.m. Friday, Icheon City Stadium, Icheon, Gyeonggi
South Korea’s U-23 football team led by manager Shin Tae-yong is slated to play Algeria today in a friendly match in Icheon, Korea.
The two friendly matches against Algeria are deemed to be preparatory sessions before the Olympics. Although the team secured its spot, the games will be an opportunity for manager Shin to review the strengths and weaknesses of his squad.
