“Today (27th), we cannot win even if we are told to play the game again. BNK did so well.”
Incheon Shinhan Bank lost 62-79 in an away game against Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball Busan BNK held at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 27th. Shinhan Bank, which was on a three-game winning streak, was hit by BNK and recorded 10-10, finishing the fourth round in 4th place.
If Shinhan Bank had won that day, it could have tied for second place with BNK and Yongin Samsung Life Insurance. The opponent record with BNK is also tied at 2 wins and 2 losses, and the gap with 5th place Cheongju KB widens further. A 4-game winning streak continues to the upward trend. After the 5th round, I lost everything that could give me a significant advantage in the ranking competition with this defeat.
Shinhan Bank coach Gunadan said after the defeat that day, “We lost overwhelmingly on the rebound. Jinan (11), Han Eom-ji (12), and Kim Han-byeol (7) took 30 rebounds. We had the team grab 30 rebounds. That means (BNK) had a lot of attacks. (Winning) is not easy,” he said. “This is the reality. We don’t have much to do if we lose the rebound fight. I am aware of this and am working on (complementing) this season, but as a manager, I have to say something about this. I came to my first BNK (away match) and thought, of course, that the shot would not go in, and if the shot did not go in, I thought it was a rebound fight, so today (27th) I can’t win even if I ask them to play the game again. BNK did very well,” he said, citing poor rebound as a loss.
In the third quarter, which started 27-40, they caught up with 44-50, narrowing the score gap to 48-56.
Regarding the contents of the 3rd quarter, coach Kunadan said, “If Kim Han-byeol comes out of the rotation, we can take some rhythm. When Kim Han-byul comes in, it’s not an excuse, but it’s one of the hardest parts because we’re playing basketball without a center. Kim Han-byeol, Bae Hye-yoon, and Park Ji-soo are the strongest big man in the league. It would be nice if he could come out with a good body and prepare well for the next game.” 안전놀이터
Shinhan Bank took a 17-14 lead in the first quarter, but gave up the flow of the game by conceding a run after an error in the second quarter. Mistakes were more at 14-11.
Coach Gunadan said, “This is the part we are trying to catch from the beginning of this season. There are parts where each other’s hands and feet still don’t fit. So there are a lot of mistakes. BNK prepared the defense well. While blocking our players’ strengths, the shooting success rate dropped, and we used a mixture of local defense and interpersonal defense.” Byun So-jeong is still lacking in the fight. It wasn’t easy for us to rotate, and because of that, we made a lot of mistakes.”
