Woori Bank has only two steps left to win the regular league. Coach Seong-Woo Seong-Woo stressed the need to improve performance in the remaining regular season games for the playoffs.
Asan Woori Bank, led by coach Wi Sung-woo, won 69-59 in a face-to-face confrontation with Cheongju KB Stars in the 5th round of the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball Regular League held at Asan Yi Sun-shin Gymnasium on the 5th. With this victory, Woori Bank succeeded in escaping from two consecutive losses, leaving only two wins to win the regular league championship.
Coach Seong-woo Seong-woo said, “It was definitely not worse than the previous game. I felt a little out of line in the second half, but the first quarter was quite good. Regardless of the score, the movement of the players was very good.”
“There may be many reasons why I was a little disappointed in the second half, but it seems that the players are loosening up because they are winning. And since the players are old, it seems to be revealed in that part.”
In an interview before the match, coach Seong-Woo Lee said that he was looking forward to Ji-Hyun Park’s awakening. As if in response, Park Ji-hyun dominated the court with 24 points and 16 rebounds. The 16 rebounds are the most rebounds recorded by Park Ji-hyun this season. This is Park Ji-hyun, who showed more tenacity and fighting spirit for victory than ever before.
Director Wi Seong-woo said, “I hope (Park) Ji-hyun will continue to do this without forgetting this sense. I was surprised that he even defended the rotation that I had never thought of on the court. He did really well. I think that if Ji-Hyun gives a little more sense and does it, he will become more comfortable in the game. Strangely, if you just praise him, he’s not as bad as a ghost, so I shouldn’t praise him (laughs)” and praised him sparingly.
Woori Bank has only two wins left before winning the regular league. Depending on the results of the remaining matches of second place Busan BNK Sum, it may be further 먹튀검증 reduced. Woori Bank is a team that aims not only to win the regular league but also to win the playoffs. In order to achieve good results in the playoffs, all players, not just the main players, need to perform.
Manager Wi Seong-woo said, “(Na) Yoon Jeong-i has strengths in offense, but there are regrets in defense. (Go) Ara is tall, but it can put strain on her knees, so she said, “I have to distribute my stamina.” Chances are bound to fly. I think it’s the difference between putting it in or not putting it in,” he said, emphasizing the role of the two players in the playoffs.
He continued, “If we finish in first place and advance to the playoffs is confirmed, all the players have to do their part. The playoffs are a short-term game, and since there are consecutive games, it is not a situation where you can practice.”
In the end, he said, “There are two wins left before winning, but basically, I think I don’t have to practice, focusing on improving my performance rather than winning,” he said, reaffirming his determination for the remaining games.
