2 seconds before the end of the game. The ball from Cheongju KB Kim Min-jung, who was digging under the goal, was sucked into the rim. A thrilling come-from-behind goal by 1 point. It was practically a buzzer beater.
Thanks to Kim Min-jung’s winning shot, KB blew the whistle for two consecutive victories in the second half and pressed 4th place Incheon Shinhan Bank with a 3.5 game gap. Park Ji-soo, the “returned pillar,” is returning to her true form with 15 points and 13 rebounds, while Kang I-seul, who made a thrilling 3-point shot in the All-Star Game, is recovering the team balance with 14 points. When the pillars returned, the regional defense also shone and locked the opponent’s flow. KB started a counterattack.
KB won the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball regular league Busan BNK game held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 20th with a score of 62-61 (10-16 19-13 18-8 15-24). Two seconds before the end of the game, Kim Min-jung (10 points, 5 rebounds) recklessly penetrated under the goal and scored the winning goal. KB, who won the 6th win (13th loss) of the season, announced that it was reorganizing the front line. Shinhan Bank, which took the lead Woori Bank, presented (?) a reason not to let go of the tension.
The early flow was caught by BNK. Leading 16-10 in the first quarter. However, from the second quarter, when KB restored the inner and outer ensemble of Park Ji-soo and Kang I-seul, they were put on the defensive. KB, who finished the first half with a tie score of 29-29, switched to regional defense in the third quarter to block the flow of BNK. Only 8 runs were allowed in the 3rd quarter, but the local defense, which allowed only one goal to the opponent in 6 minutes, was outstanding.
In women’s basketball, even a 10-point lead is likely to catch up in an instant. As if they were sure of victory, KB’s defense loosened up, and BNK didn’t miss it. BNK, driven from the beginning of the 4th quarter, Lee So-hee (19 points) put in a series of 3-pointers to break down the regional defense, and Kim Han-byeol and Lee So-hee scored under the goal to turn the score over to 51-49.
KB, whose foot was on fire, was chased by 55-54, but Kang Iseul tried to lead the flow with a 3-pointer 2 minutes and 29 seconds before the end of the game. A close match unfolded one by one, and Park Ji-soo caught the ball from the front of the arc, and Kim Min-jung, who had been digging under the goal, received the pass from the ‘pillar’ and fired the final shot.
