In the fierce battle for second place, BNK coach Park Jeong-eun showed a nervous look, saying that she would prepare carefully.
Busan BNK, led by coach Park Jung-eun, lost 52-76 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball regular league home game against Asan Woori Bank at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 13th. BNK fell into a 4-game losing streak at home, and the gap with Incheon Shinhan Bank in 3rd place increased to 1 game.
After the game, coach Park Jeong-eun said, “Today (the 13th) is also a game today, but the atmosphere shouldn’t continue, and I told (to the team) what went well in the beginning of the game. Now we have to focus on the game rather than looking back and regretting it, so I tried to set the mood for (the players),” he said after the game. 토토사이트
BNK finished the second quarter with a 34-42, 8-point lead. However, the pendulum of the game tilted in the third quarter. BNK, who recorded a 24% field goal success rate in the 3rd quarter, could not stop Woori Bank, who was in a good mood by scoring 21 points.
Regarding this, coach Park Jeong-eun said, “I went through two expeditions last week, and I think there was fatigue from playing until the second overtime. So I rotated it, and as I rotated it, a lot of mistakes came out where my hands and feet didn’t match. In the first half, the players did a good job of what they had prepared, but in the second half, there were many fouls and it became physically difficult, so I think I was shaken. Woori Bank did not miss this and attacked well,” he explained the reason for the sudden collapse of BNK in the third quarter.
In a fierce battle for second place, BNK will play home games in Changwon and Ulsan. Regarding meeting Incheon Shinhan Bank and Yongin Samsung Life Insurance, who are fighting for second place in Changwon and Ulsan, coach Park said, “The schedule was like that, so we couldn’t take advantage of the home advantage, but the players thought it was home (in a new stadium). I don’t want you to think like that. It’s burdensome to have the game held, but I think that if I meet the fans in Changwon and Ulsan, the fan base will become wider, and I will play hard, considering it my home.”
Before the next game, Shinhan Bank on the 19th, BNK’s ace Kim Han-byul will return. Director Park Jeong-eun, who was able to let go of her worries with Kim Han-byul’s return, said, “There is a sense of weight that Kim Han-byul is coming back. In the meantime, if the concentration on Jinan is dispersed, the key is how quickly to return the part prepared in the offseason in the 6th round,” he said. “I will prepare carefully. The moment you think of 4th place, you can think that the playoffs are the limit, so I am looking at a higher place than 4th place, and my goal is to step up from last year. If you lose more than 1 in 6 rounds, it will be dangerous, so I will do it carefully.”
