Women’s professional basketball Busan BNK, which stood at the forefront of the attack with Kim Si-on scoring 3 points and 4 shots, defeated Bucheon Hana 1Q for a 3-game losing streak.
BNK defeated Hana 1Q 82-68 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball regular league home game held at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 29th.
BNK, which had a streak of victories following the previous game against Shinhan Bank in Incheon (79-62 wins), kept second place with 13 wins and 8 losses.
The gap with Yongin Samsung 메이저놀이터 Life Insurance (11-10), which was competing for second place in the early and middle of the season, widened to two games.
On the other hand, Hana 1 Q (2 wins, 19 losses), the lowest ranked player who suffered 3 consecutive losses, is less likely to escape from the bottom.
After Park Ji-soo, the ‘pillar’ of Korean women’s basketball, returned, the 5th place Cheongju KB (8 wins, 13 losses), which continued the upward trend, also took place in 6 games.
In BNK, Kim Si-on, who scored 3 points at each critical moment, recorded the most points with 20 points for both teams.
It is also the most goals scored in a single game in his career. Kim Si-on’s previous record was 16 points from the Samsung Life Insurance match at the end of November last year.
BNK’s proud under-the-goal duo Kim Han-byul and Jin-an played their part with 16 points and 8 rebounds and 11 points and 11 rebounds, respectively.
Lee So-hee, who is in charge of the outer gun, also contributed to the fight under the goal by collecting 12 points and 10 rebounds that day.
In Hana One Q, Yang In-young scored 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Jung Ye-rim scored 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Shin Ji-hyun, the team’s main gun, also recorded 12 points and 8 assists, but the field goal success rate was disappointing.
Shin Ji-hyun, who threw 5 3 points and missed 4, threw 18 shots in and out, only 4 were successful.
With Yang In-yeong, who posted 9 points and 5 rebounds, Hana 1 Q led 22-13 in the first quarter, raising expectations for an early victory.
In the second quarter, when Jin An and Kim Han-byeol intensively attacked the bottom of the goal, Jeong Ye-rim and Shin Ji-hyeon’s three-pointers broke out and kept a narrow lead of 37-35.
However, the balance of the game gradually began to shift towards BNK due to Kim Si-on’s performance, who scored 12 points in the 3rd quarter alone, and Lee So-hee scored 3 points just before the end of the quarter, widening the gap to 7 points for BNK.
Since then, Hana 1Q, unable to find a way to attack, has noticeably weakened its pursuit, and Hana 1Q brought key players such as Shin Ji-hyun and Yang In-young to the bench about a minute before the end of the game, virtually raising the white flag
