’14 point loss + garbage game’ KB, the 3rd quarter that still saw hope
KB players showed good performance in the 3rd quarter. In particular, Yoonmi Lee, Jisu Yang, and Seoyi Um, who were chosen as the team’s future, were the main characters.
Cheongju KB Stars met Asan Woori Bank in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball regular league held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 25th and lost 56-70.
KB was the best team in the league last season. Park Ji-soo (196cm, C), a sure ace, recruited Kang I-seul (180cm, F), and showed an overwhelming appearance from the regular league to the championship match.
But this season was a bit different. It is because of the residual injuries of the players and Park Ji-soo not playing many games due to injury. In the 9 games Park Ji-soo played, he recorded 6 wins and 3 losses, but recorded 3 wins and 15 losses in the remaining games. As a result, they failed to qualify for the playoffs before the season was over.
Not only Park Ji-soo but Yeom Yoon-ah (177cm, G) were also ruled out for the season due to injuries. It was KB that was preparing for the next season as it had already failed to advance to the playoffs. Then, KB coach Kim Wan-soo began to pay attention to the young players in the team. Heo Ye-eun (165cm, G), as well as Yang Ji-su (174cm, F), Lee Yoon-mi (172cm, G), and Um Seo-i (175cm, F), who are performing well this season, will receive more opportunities.
KB played an equal game with Woori Bank in the first quarter. Even though the team scored only 10 points, it was because they gave only 14 points to the opponent.
However, in the second quarter, Woori Bank’s offense began to revive. Woori Bank allowed 4 3-pointers. It was pushed from the beginning of the quarter and went to the end of the second quarter. The defense was disappointing, but the offense was even more disappointing. Only 4 points in the first 5 minutes of the quarter. Then the score gap widened rapidly. Even in the second half of the second quarter, KB only scored 3 points. They started the second quarter at 10-14, but finished the second quarter at 17-36.
Even so, KB players did not give up. In particular, Eom Seo-i, Lee Yun-mi, and Yang Ji-soo did not spare their bodies.
Um Seo-i recorded an offensive rebound at 2:42 and scored a free throw. After that, he took a rebound that did not spare his body, which led to Kang Iseul’s 3-point shot. Then the atmosphere of KB came alive.
Yang Ji-soo added a mid-range score through a handoff play with Um Seo-i. Afterwards, Yang Ji-soo even scored a free throw. In particular, he added vitality to the team by not being pushed back in physical fights with opponents, including the rebound fight.
After that, Yoonmi Lee took on the role of a solver for the team. During the 3-point shot process, he induced the opponent’s foul and succeeded in 2 out of 3 free throws obtained. Afterwards, he received Heo Ye-eun’s ball and added a quick three-point shot. It didn’t stop there and added a 3-point shot 1 minute and 6 seconds before the end of the quarter. It was Lee Yoon-mi who scored 10 points in the third quarter alone. 바카라사이트
