Incheon Shinhan Bank won 77-73 in a home game against Yongin Samsung Life Insurance in the 6th round of the regular league of ‘Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball’ on the 26th. With only one game left, Shinhan Bank tied with Samsung Life Insurance with 16 wins and 13 losses. Shinhan Bank, which is behind with 2 wins and 4 losses in the season, should hope that Samsung Life Insurance will lose after winning the final game안전놀이터. Only then can it finish third and avoid a confrontation with Asan Woori Bank, the regular league champion, in the semifinal playoffs (PO). Although it is at a disadvantage as it is impossible to reach third place on its own, the victory at Samsung Life Insurance against Shinhan Bank was significant in many ways.
Shinhan Bank had a hard time solving the game that day. Even though Samsung Life ace Bae Hye-yoon did not start, he gave up the early atmosphere and was dragged. They trailed 54-62 by the third quarter. However, in the 4th quarter, he showed off his power to overturn the game with his terrifying concentration. On the 23rd, I did not repeat the incident of helplessly collapsing at Hana 1Q in Bucheon by 20 points, and I wrote a comeback drama with a back mind.
Shinhan Bank had a big task to solve this season. It was about having to overcome the departure of a solid ace. Kim Dan-bi, who played an ace for a long time at Shinhan Bank, left for Woori Bank last summer after receiving the qualification as a free agent (FA). Several people had to share the responsibility of the ace, who held the center of the team on both offense and defense. Perhaps in the aftermath of that, Shinhan Bank showed extreme ups and downs in its performance during this season. It showed improvement over and over again in the game, but it also collapsed unexpectedly like in the match against Hana One Q.
Fortunately, Shinhan Bank players showed their tenacity in what could have been the most important game in the regular league this season. Sonia Kim, Jinyoung Kim, Kyungeun Lee, and Gooseul were not plays that depended on one person, but several players were equally active and won a valuable victory. There is no clear ace, but attention is focusing on whether Shinhan Bank players, who are seeking harmony, will show formidable competitiveness in PO.
