BNK’s goal is 2nd place. However, due to recent sluggishness, it gave up second place.
Busan BNK Some lost 73-78 to Yongin Samsung Life Insurance in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball regular league held at Yongin Indoor Gymnasium on the 8th.
BNK succeeded in advancing to the playoffs for the first time since its foundation last season. At that time, Kim Han-byeol (178cm, F) held the center, and Ahn Hye-ji (164cm, G) and Lee So-hee (170cm, G) also grew up a notch.
This season, Han Eom-ji (180cm, F) was recruited to advance to the playoffs. In addition, Jinan (181cm, C) also melted into the team.
Although they faced Asan Woori Bank in the first game of the season and suffered a crushing loss, from then on, the team, centered on Kim Han-byul, did their best to advance to the playoffs. As a result, BNK maintains a top-tier fight. Although the gap with Woori Bank in first place was large, it continued to fight for second place with Samsung Life Insurance.
There was also an opportunity to widen the gap. In the 4th round, Samsung Life’s main guards were injured and fell into a 5-game losing streak. However, BNK did not make good use of that period. This is because the players caught the flu and could not maintain their normal condition. In the 4th round, it was only 3 wins and 2 losses. And in the 5th round, he met Shinhan Bank and lost. With the loss of the game, the gap with Samsung Life narrowed to 0.5 games.
That’s how BNK had an important match with Samsung Life Insurance in the 5th round. If the match is lost, the second place is handed over.
The 2nd place at BNK was even more special. Like other teams, BNK was stronger at home. They have a record of 8 wins and 3 losses at home. On the other hand, away from home, the record is 5 wins and 7 losses. In particular, BNK is more important because it is the only one that uses Gyeongsang Province as its home.
Recognizing this, BNK coach Park Jeong-eun said, “As with all teams, our team has a better energy level, especially when playing at home. These are the players who have a lot of excitement. So I think it would be better to finish second and win a lot of home games. I think it’s essential to get rid of the disappointment in last year’s playoffs.”
It was an important match to defend the 2nd place, but BNK also lost the match that day.
At the beginning of the first quarter, Lee So-hee took the lead and took the mood. The streak made it 6-2. However, it was reversed by giving 7 points in a row to the opponent.
