Kim Min-jung (181cm, F)’s invisible contribution was quite large.
Cheongju KB Stars defeated Bucheon Hanawon Q 85-76 in Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 14th. Win the first game after the All-Star break. With 5 wins and 13 losses, it narrowed the gap with Incheon Shinhan Bank (8 wins and 9 losses) in 4th place by 3.5 games.
KB Stars’ one-two punch was Park Ji-soo (196cm, C) and Kang Iseul (180cm, F) from the 2021-2022 season. KB Stars’ offensive and defensive movements are mainly focused on the two players, and the team facing KB Stars focuses a lot on the two players’ offensive and defensive movements.
KB Stars coach Kim Wan-soo, who took the baton from the 2021-2022 season, tried to reduce his dependence on the one-two punch. He emphasized organic movements and motivated bench members. It was because one-two punch held the center, but resources needed to create a synergistic effect with one-two punch.
The representative player is Kim Min-jung. Kim Min-jung is the player who uses Park Ji-soo’s cooperative defense the best. He moves a lot on the opposite side of Park Ji-soo, but scores points with precise timing. A tough player for opponents.
However, Park Ji-soo left in August 2022 due to symptoms of panic disorder. The burden on the rest of the players increased. Performance may also decrease. In particular, the ability of players with good movement without the ball could sink.
Kim Min-jeong had a strong possibility. However, Kim Min-jung was more aggressive. Aside from his traditional off-the-ball movement, he also showed off his one-on-one ability in and around the basket. I carried KB Stars without Park Ji-soo with Kang I-seul.
And Park Ji-soo is back. Park Ji-soo’s body is not perfect, but Kim Min-jung’s strength can be great. Even if Park Ji-soo is not 100% body, it is because the opponent’s defense can look at Park Ji-soo.
Also, Kim Min-jung had to help Park Ji-soo, who was not 100%. I had to create a synergistic effect with Park Ji-soo with more active and active movements. For KB Stars to rebound, Kim Min-jung’s aggressive movements are a must.
In addition, coach Kim Do-wan of Hana One Q said before the game, “(Park) Ji-soo is back. Jisoo’s score in the paint zone must be prevented, but (Kang) Seuli’s 3 points must also be blocked. I have a lot to do.” 카지노사이트
When Hana One Q focused on Park Ji-soo and Kang I-seul, Kim Min-jung had to shake them. Kim Min-jung knew what to do. He did a variety of options, including defensive rotations and offensive rebounds, kick-out passes from jumpers and corners that took advantage of mismatches, and hand-offs. Nevertheless, KB Stars finished the first quarter 26-29. Because the outer defense was not good.
Kim Min-jung was influenced by the flow of the team. Because of KB Stars’ poor offensive atmosphere, Kim Min-jung’s silent movements were not effective. KB Stars called Kim Min-jung to the bench 2 minutes and 6 seconds into the 2nd quarter.
Kim Min-jung, who took a break, focused more on movements without the ball. On the other side of Park Ji-soo, he thought more about movement. He also had good camouflage action. He seemed to penetrate under the rim, but slipped into the corner and made a jumper. It bothered Hana One Q.
Kim Min-jung did an important job in 5 minutes and 5 seconds from the start of the 3rd quarter. He made a runaway score by inducing a foul free throw following a movement without the ball. Kim Min-jung’s free throw was more meaningful as she drove Yang In-yeong (184cm, F), the key big man of Hana 1Q, into 5 fouls.
Kim Min-jung led the foul with a breakthrough motion even 44.6 seconds before the end of the third quarter. Hana 1 Q’s 5th foul in the 3rd quarter. Kim Min-jung stood at the free throw line. Standing on the free throw line, Kim Min-jung succeeded in both free throws. KB Stars had an advantage (63-53) by a double-digit score for the first time since the start of the game.
Hana 1 Q counterattacked with a 3-2 regional defense in the 4th quarter, but Kim Min-jung completely blocked Hana 1 Q’s counterattack. After dominating the high post with a momentary move, he finished off his teammate’s pass with a mid-range jumper. Hana 1 Q broke the foundation of defense.
It was also judged that Park Ji-soo’s struggle under the goal was not easy. Kim Min-jung had a high frequency of going under the rim. He also has a wide defensive range that goes beyond the perimeter and under the goal. He showed active movement until the end. Such active movement became the hidden approval for KB Stars to escape losing streak.
