What was more important to Shinhan Bank was winning rather than performance.
Incheon Shinhan Bank won a 70-69 come-from-behind match against Cheongju KB Stars in the 5th round of Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball held at Incheon Dowon Gymnasium on the 9th. Shinhan Bank, which had four consecutive victories, had a season record of 14 wins and 10 losses. It was tied for second place with Yongin Samsung Life Insurance.
Shinhan Bank was looking forward to competing for second place beyond advancing to the playoffs. It was thanks to the fact that the 4th round was finished with 3 wins and 2 losses, and in the 5th round, it was thanks to the three consecutive wins before the game.
Shinhan Bank’s rotation experiment has also stabilized to some extent. Sonia Kim (177cm, F) was firmly established as the ace, and Kim Jin-young (176cm, F) – Lee Kyung-eun (173cm, G) – Kim Ah-reum (174cm, F) – Han Chae-jin (174cm, F) supported her.
Stable performance naturally followed. Low elongation was offset by higher energy levels. The organic attack flow was also impressive.
However, it was difficult to find momentum in the 5th round in this match. It was not easy to cope with the attack of KB Stars with Kang Iseul (180cm, F) and Kim Min-jeong (180cm, F) at the fore.
In the 2022-2023 season, he was unable to get ahead in the rebound fight even while facing KB Stars, who had the lowest average rebound. He also gave away a lot of offensive rebounds. The secret of Shinhan Bank’s recent good performance was not shown at all.
Shinhan Bank did not record more rebounds than KB Stars in a single quarter until the third quarter. In addition to hitting Yatoo’s sluggish performance, they also failed to show competitiveness against KB Stars’ second unit. By the third quarter, the score was 8 points.
The turnaround began in the 4th quarter. Shinhan Bank players’ feet, which were heavy throughout the game, seemed to be walking on clouds. 스포츠토토
Shinhan Bank constantly swayed KB Stars with its high energy level. Kang Iseul and Kim Min-jung’s yatu attempts were also blocked.
Until the third quarter, Sonia Kim’s performance, which was somewhat disappointing, continued. Sonia Kim exploded with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the 4th quarter alone.
Even so, Shinhan Bank’s time was insufficient. This is because Kim Min-jung scored a run away by 7 points 1 minute 49 seconds before the end of the game. Shinhan Bank could not get out of the loop of 7 points until 55 seconds before the end of the game.
However, the eyes of Shinhan Bank players were alive. He pursued offensive rebounds and induced KB Stars turnover with strong pressure defense. Sonia Kim and Kyung-eun Lee gradually reduced the score difference.
