“How can you win if you easily score a lot? OK. Go in and do it!”
The first match of the women’s professional basketball that came back after the All-Star break ended with Asan Woori Bank’s thrilling reversal. Woori Bank overturned the score that had earned up to 15 points in the first half of the game and won 64-61 in the match against Shinhan Bank Incheon held at Incheon Dowon Gymnasium on the 14th and started the second half pleasantly.
Shinhan Bank, who was defeated by Woori Bank by 31 points and 25 points, respectively, in the 2nd and 3rd round confrontation, took the lead early on this day with a completely different appearance. From the first quarter, seven outer cannons exploded, and Woori Bank was distracted by a three-point shot without mercy. The end of the first quarter is 28-16.
In women’s professional basketball, if you get a big lead from the first quarter, a game that doesn’t turn over will continue. It is because the team that precedes the team is excited to run away, and the team that has been pushed away is in a hurry to follow, and it easily collapses.
Shinhan Bank, who had an excitement in the first quarter, fled to 31-16 with Han Chaejin’s three branches immediately after the second quarter began. In the situation where Woori Bank fell 22-35 amidst the scoring points given and received, the ‘Magic Operation Time’ of Director Sang-woo was summoned.
Director Wee, who eagerly called Sonia Kim’s name, said, “Listen. It could be a bad day today, but what’s not going on right now is that if you catch the ball, you don’t look at the rim. I keep trying to give it to me,” he delivered a soft and concise message. Manager Wi, who followed the instructions for the operation, said that it was a game that might not be possible for the players, but let’s try at least as much as we can.
What was the result of Operation Time, which instilled confidence in the players who were under the mood?
Park Ji-hyun Middle shot 24-35. Sonia Kim scored under the goal 26-35. Sonia Kim again scored 28-35. Sonia Kim scored another 30-35 goal.
The atmosphere of Shinhan Bank, which missed the chance to run away, and Woori Bank, caught up with the difference in scores that seemed to be overwhelming, quickly changed. Afterwards, Woori Bank strongly pressed Shinhan Bank, and three stores of Park Hye-jin and Choi Eun-sil, winners of the day, finished the second quarter with 38-40.
Woori Bank in the mood eventually reversed to 47-46 with 3 minutes and 59 seconds left at the end of the third quarter. After that, Woori Bank did not give the lead and took the victory as it was.
The game, where the atmosphere completely changed in one operation time, showed why Woori Bank is a strong team. Even the enemy coach Sang-il Sang-il said, “If it’s like a team, it will collapse in the first half, but Woori Bank is a strong team.” I have no regrets today,” he admitted to the opponent’s ability.
Manager Wee praised the players, saying, “I was surprised by the opponent’s three points.” “Even in the absence of Kim Jong-un, the players did a better job of jumping one step further.”
