The women’s professional basketball game is fluctuating greatly. Cheongju KB, where Park Ji-soo resurrected, is showing a terrifying rise and putting pressure on the top teams.
KB defeated Yongin Samsung Life Insurance 메이저사이트 by 88-67, 21 points in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball regular league home game held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 28th, and sprinted for 4 consecutive wins.
KB, who had 8 wins and 13 losses, remained in 5th place. However, the gap with Incheon Shinhan Bank (10-10) in 4th place narrowed to 2.5 games. The gap with 3rd place Samsung Life Insurance (11-10), which suffered 5 consecutive losses, was also narrowed to 3 games. 2nd place Busan BNK defeated Bucheon Hanawon Q 82-68 on the 29th and won 13 wins (8 losses), keeping the gap with KB at 5 games, but Samsung Life Insurance and Shinhan Bank had KB overturned enough in the remaining 9 games. has entered the visible sphere to challenge.
The revival of KB soon began with the revival of Park Ji-soo. Park Ji-soo, the pillar under the goal, recorded 24 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists against Samsung Life Insurance that day, and played a tremendous role close to a triple double. As Park Ji-soo revived, guard Heo Ye-eun’s pass became even sharper. Heo Ye-eun delivered 12 assists, tying his personal record for 10 points on this day.
Park Ji-soo is not simply tall. Not only is he overshadowed by his tall stature, but his passing sense is also excellent. Last season, when KB won the overall championship, Park Ji-soo not only ranked first in points and rebounds, but also showed off his all-round skills by ranking 5th overall in assists.
After Park Ji-su, who suffered from panic disorder during the first half of the year, returned, KB was able to use more space. Kang I-seul, the best shooter in the league, has a poor shot feeling, with a 3-point shot success rate of only 29.2% this season, but he did his part in scoring by posting an average of 14 points in the 4th round. In particular, the frequency of attacks using the screen provided by Park Ji-soo was frequent. In addition, Kim Min-jeong and Park Ji-soo’s space created by Ji-soo Park were well dug into and steadily scoring, and the team’s attack became more active as a whole. Considering Park Ji-soo, who is good at kickout passes that usually take out from under the goal to the outside, KB can exert greater power even if the team’s 3-point shot success rate, which is only 24.5%, rises even slightly.
The fact that KB and Park Ji-soo survived is not welcome news for teams aiming for the playoffs. KB with normal power is a power that is not strange even if they win all the remaining games. In the playoffs, 1st place and 4th place, 2nd place and 3rd place teams clash, and neither Asan Woori Bank nor BNK, who are currently in the 1st or 2nd place, would want the current KB to come up. KB’s last-minute rise is creating fresh tension in women’s professional basketball, where the rankings were solidifying.
