‘Don’t look beyond the 2nd place’ BNK, Han Chae-jin, the oldest player, defeated Shinhan Bank
BNK finished the 4th round holding the sole 2nd place.
Busan BNK won 79-62 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball Incheon Shinhan Bank home game held at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 27th. BNK, who finished the 4th round with 12 wins and 8 losses, kept the sole 2nd place. Shinhan Bank was unable to continue the upward trend of three consecutive wins, and suffered its 10th defeat (10 wins), missing the opportunity to rise to a tie for second place and remaining in fourth place.
Before the match, both teams were desperate for victory. Of course, no team thinks of defeat before the game starts. Both BNK and Shinhan Bank gave meaning to the match.
Park Jeong-eun, coach of BNK, said, “Round 4 is the last game for us, and round 5 is also important. Among them, the players know that the match with Shinhan Bank is important.”
BNK will have 3 home matches starting with the game on this day. Among them, Shinhan Bank is the opponent for 2 matches. If you win both games against Shinhan Bank, you will expand your ride to 3 games and secure an opponent’s superiority (4 wins, 1 loss) and lead by 3.5 games. It is a very advantageous step in the race to advance to the playoffs.
Gunadan Shinhan Bank coach said, “Han Chae-jin will set a record. So, with a unified mind, we told them to run and win the game today (27th). Kim Jin-young also said he wanted to win after coming here (BNK).”
Han Chae-jin stepped on the court in the game that day and set the record for the oldest participation (38 years, 319 days). Tina Thompson (38 years, 314 days) and Heo Yun-ja (38 years, 313 days) ranked first and second in the previous record.
Han Chae-jin’s all-time record needed a win to add more meaning. In addition, Shinhan Bank can escape even a little more from the pursuit of 5th place Cheongju KB, which will pursue hotly.
BNK started the game uneasy, giving Han Chae-jin a 3-point shot 10 seconds into the game. Although it turned around with a goal following an offensive rebound, the first quarter ended with 14-17 due to Shinhan Bank’s organized play. 메이저사이트
BNK completely changed the flow in the second quarter. They scored 15 points in 5 minutes and 10 seconds in the second quarter and gave only 3 points to Shinhan Bank, leading 29-20. BNK, which was shaken for a moment by conceding consecutive runs to Byeon So-jung, finished the first half with a 40-27, 13-point advantage thanks to Han Eom-ji and Kim Han-byeol’s scoring.
Coach Jeong-eun Park said before the game that day, “Except for Chae-jin Han, Kyung-eun Lee, and Sonia Kim, (Shinhan Bank players) have little experience, so they are not very different from us. We are a little younger and can play basketball physically, and Sonia Kim and Jinyoung Kim have a lot of fouls, so if we use that part, we can bring out the bench players.”
Until the middle of the second quarter, Shinhan Bank had twice as many fouls as BNK, but after the middle of the second quarter, BNK poured out fouls. Following Ahn Hye-ji, Lee So-hee committed three fouls in the first half. BNK led by 13 points until the first half, but went into the second half with the anxiety factor of a foul trouble by a key player. Shinhan Bank could change the flow of the economy depending on how well it utilized it.
Ahn Hye-ji was caught with 4 fouls with 6 minutes and 45 seconds left in the third quarter. After bringing Ahn Hye-ji to the bench, the double-digit score narrowed to 6 points (50-44). BNK reintroduced Ahn Hye-ji. The defense was also changed to regional defense. Lee So-hee’s 3-point shot took a breather, but the 4th quarter was greeted with a 56-48, 8-point difference.
At the start of the 4th quarter, BNK escaped with a double-digit score difference with Jin An and Ahn Hye-ji scoring consecutively, but Han Chae-jin and Lee Kyung-eun gave up equally. With 6 minutes and 27 seconds left, Lee So-hee also committed a fourth foul.
BNK, who had won by 1 point in the previous two games, showed their concentration. Jinan, Kim Hanbyeol and Ahn Hyeji scored consecutively. With 3 minutes and 51 seconds left, they had a 70-56, 14-point advantage. BNK, who allowed Kim Jin-young to make a 3-point shot, increased the score gap to 75-59 by adding Jin-an’s consecutive goals. The game is virtually over.
