Park Ji-soo was selected for victory with approval and defeat with defeat.
Cheongju KB Stars won 62-55 against Shinhan Bank Incheon in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball regular league held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 19th.
KB started the game in a good mood. Kim So-dam’s consecutive goals came out. There, the players scored evenly. Park Ji-soo also recorded 4 points, 1 rebound and 1 block shot, running for 4 minutes and 19 seconds. Like that, KB finished the first quarter with a score of 15-11.
Even after that, KB maintained its flow. The score at the end of the third quarter was 45-30. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, there was a crisis as Sonia Kim and So-Jung Byeon conceded consecutive runs, but Park Ji-soo’s consecutive goals broke the flow. In addition, Kang Iseul’s performance was added, and KB succeeded in winning the first consecutive season.
KB coach Kim Wan-soo, whom I met after the game, said, “I didn’t expect this much, but it is (Park) Ji-soo. He didn’t play a lot of time, but he put it in the right place well,” he started the interview.
He continued, “I tried to reduce Sonia Kim’s score before the game, but she did well. And he tried to control his 3-point shot, which is half-and-half. Some he blocked well, some he allowed a lot of offensive rebounds, so he got eaten. Still, Jisoo made it look like Jisoo, and (Kang) Dewseul and (Kim) Minjeong held the center. It was a difficult game, but we played an expected game.”
On this day, KB attempted 19 three-point shots, only two were successful. However, he defeated his opponent by winning the paint zone fight. Regarding this, coach Kim said, “In the meantime, if I didn’t go in, I lost. But now, the index scores even from inside. In the future, the inside will be my strength, but I think I need to think more about the outside issues.”
Lastly, when I asked coach Kim about Park Ji-soo’s break training plan, he said, “(Jisoo) will improve his physical strength and body during the break period. Basketball is important, but this comes first. After that, I will match the offense and defense with the team. Looking at the situation, I will adjust the playing time.”
Meanwhile, Shinhan Bank gave the opponent an atmosphere from the first quarter. I grabbed a lot of offensive rebounds, but I couldn’t connect them to goals. Ace Sonia Kim tried 6 shots and missed them all. It was Shinhan Bank that set the mood from the first quarter.안전놀이터
Kim Ah-reum scored 6 points in the 2nd quarter, but allowed the opponent 16 points and the score gap widened further. And in the third quarter, the team only scored 7 points, making the score 30-45.
Sonia Kim, who had been quiet in the 4th quarter, revived and led the chase, but could not control Park Ji-soo. Until the end, he continued the pursuit with an outside shot, but it was not enough.
Gunadan Shinhan Bank coach, who we met after the game, said, “It was clear that (Park) Ji-soo came back, so KB was also in a mood. is also exponential. On the contrary, we also missed a lot of easy shots. And the shot didn’t go in too much. It’s all the same anyway, but I hope the players do it more boldly. It’s a pity that it collapsed easily from the beginning,” he said, overall reviewing the game.
Shinhan Bank center Kim Tae-yeon was sent off in the fourth quarter for five fouls. In response, coach Koo said, “Taeyeon couldn’t hold out until the end and went out with 5 fouls. It wouldn’t have been easy for Taeyeon either. (Laughter) Taeyeon is the only center in our team. To do it with KB, I had to fight for the center, but that part was disappointing.”
