Shinhan Bank has worked again. It was a series of victories against the solid ‘River 1’ Woori Bank. Director Gunadan couldn’t hide the laughter that flowed throughout the interview after the game.
Shinhan Bank in Incheon, led by coach Kunadan, won 74-72 in the 5th round of the 5th round of the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball Asan Woori Bank held at Dowon Gymnasium in Incheon on the 30th. With this victory, Shinhan Bank became the only team to win twice against Woori Bank this season.
It was not a favorable condition for victory. Shinhan Bank’s power was not perfect. In particular, Yoo Seung-hee’s gap was large. On the other hand, at Woori Bank, Park Hye-jin and Choi Lee-sam, the main players of the team, returned. Coach Koo, as if conscious of this, also interviewed before the game, saying, “There were too many difficulties in preparing for the game.”
However, the game turned out quite differently than expected. In particular, Sonia Kim (25P, 12R)’s skills were in full bloom in the matchup with her parents’ team. He already made a double-double (22P 11R) in the 3rd quarter, and 6.7 seconds before the end of the game, he led the team’s reverse basket count. 토토사이트
Coach Koo said, “The players fought so well, and the shot went well. We put in a lot of effort to win at least one home game. In fact, our players did very well against the national team lineup. I was very angry even in the winning game, but today, for the first time, I am not angry,” he praised the players’ progress.
There were also crises during the game. Shinhan Bank, which had never given its opponent a chance to win until the third quarter, allowed a turnaround in the fourth quarter. This was similar to the 4th round face-to-face match, which widened the score gap at the beginning of the game, but won a sweaty victory.
Coach Koo said, “The opponent did very well. Especially Go Ara did really well. Because the opponent’s ability is good, we can’t block everything (with our own strength). It was a good thing to block Park Ji-hyun with 8 points.” He cited the opponent’s performance as the cause of the repeated game flow.
When asked that he seems to have found a solution to defeat Woori Bank, Koo showed humility. He said, “I was lucky to win. At the beginning of the season, they said they would make a team like ‘Energy Drink’, but this day was a match where the synergy effect of the players was true to that word. It is important that there are more matches like this,” he replied.
Coach Koo said, “After winning against Woori Bank in the 4th round, he said, ‘This is the first and last victory for Woori Bank.’ Wouldn’t it?” He left the interview room with a big smile.
