Women’s professional basketball Busan BNK is getting stronger ahead of ‘Spring Basketball’.
BNK defeated Shinhan Bank, Woori Bank, and Samsung Life Insurance, who were confirmed to advance to the semifinal playoffs, in turn and won three consecutive wins, occupying the most advantageous position in the competition for second place at the end of the season.
BNK defeated Yongin Samsung Life Insurance 77-57 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball regular league game held at Ulsan Dongchun Gymnasium on the 24th.
The match was held at the home stadium of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, a men’s professional basketball team, for the first time instead of Busan Sajik Gymnasium, the home of BNK, with the intention of reaching more fans by encompassing the Gyeongnam region.
In front of Ulsan fans, BNK tied for second place (16 wins, 12 losses) by holding back Samsung Life Insurance, which was in second place alone.
Among the two teams with two games left side by side, BNK has the advantage.
In women’s professional basketball, when the number of wins and odds ratio is the same, the opponent’s record is taken into account to determine the final ranking, and BNK led Samsung Life Insurance this season with 4 wins and 2 losses.
BNK widened the gap with 4th place Incheon Shinhan Bank (15 wins, 13 losses) by one game, taking a step forward in the fight to ‘avoid 4th place’.
In women’s basketball, 1st and 4th, 2nd and 3rd place play a 2-win 3 playoff, and 4th place is burdened with facing Asan Woori Bank, who confirmed the regular league championship.
On the contrary, if the opponent in the quarterfinals is not Woori Bank, the power is similar enough to judge that each other is worth trying, so the aspect of ‘avoiding fourth place’ unfolds between these three teams.
BNK, which had been in 4th place until the 18th, rose at the last minute by defeating all PO teams from Shinhan Bank on the 19th (73-61 wins) and Woori Bank on the 22nd (72-60) to Samsung Life Insurance. 메이저사이트

Entering the third quarter, Jin An and Kim Han-byeol maintained their lead by focusing on the bottom of the goal, but Samsung Life narrowed the gap to single digits with Shin Iseul’s 3 points 8 minutes before the end of the quarter.
However, BNK also counterattacked with Kim Si-on’s 3 points and ran away with a 15-point lead 3 minutes before the end of the quarter.
In the beginning of the 4th quarter, Samsung Life Insurance lost momentum in pursuit as Kim Dan-bi and Park Hye-mi missed the opportunity to shoot under the goal.
On the other hand, BNK widened the gap to 69-49 six minutes before the end with Han Eom-ji and Jin An calmly scoring.
In BNK, Jinan scored the most points with 19 points, and 5 players, Lee So-hee, Ahn Hye-ji (13 points), Kim Han-byeol (12 points), and Han Um-ji (10 points), were evenly active with double-digit points.
