Ronde Hollis Jefferson from KBL eventually came out on top in the Philippines.
Jefferson’s team, 스포츠토토TNT Tropang Giga, won 97-93 in Game 6 of the 2023 PBA (Philippine Professional Basketball) Governor’s Cup Final against Barangai Hinebra on the 21st (Korean time), achieving a combined championship with a total of 4 wins and 2 losses in the series. .
TNT proudly took first place in the regular season of the Governors Cup. Based on the scoring power that became stronger after Jefferson was recruited, Justin Brownley stopped Hinebra’s three-pit, which he endured, and eventually achieved his first Governor’s Cup victory.
Jefferson recorded 29 points, 14 rebounds and 6 assists in all 48 minutes. The final MVP was Mikey Williams, who dominated the clutch, but Jefferson, who was not pushed at all in the matchup with Brownlee, also had a high contribution.
In particular, Jefferson even got a free throw after a crucial defensive rebound at the end of the game, when Brownlee’s mid-range jumper hit the rim at the end of the game, leading 95-93. In the end, he succeeded in both free throws and finished the victory.
Jefferson’s 2023 was eventful. He headed to Jeonju KCC with the brilliant title of being from the NBA, but was eventually kicked out due to the sabotage controversy in February. He signed a contract with TNT right away, and from the moment he joined, he showed his best skills and led TNT’s solo play. And his club won their first Governors Cup. It was also the first win in Jefferson’s professional career.
