A lot was at stake in the confrontation between the two teams, who were tied for second place (14-10). The winning team was able to confirm their advance to the PO regardless of the remaining games. The will of the players to win was great. Shinhan Bank coach Gunadan said, “Samsung Life Insurance is the most difficult team to match up with” before the start of the game. It is not an easy opponent, so I want to win more.” Samsung Life coach Lim Geun-bae said, “I think it is one of the regular league games. How the players play is more important. I will pay more attention to the process,” he said.
The initial momentum of Samsung Life Insurance was scary. After a battle of giving and receiving points one by one, after 5 minutes of the first quarter, Lee Myung-gwan put in a winning number. Thanks to Lee Myung-gwan scoring 10 points, including two 3-pointers, in the first quarter alone, he was able to take the lead. Bae Hye-yoon also dominated under the goal and added 10 points. Against Shinhan Bank with Sonia Kim (19 points, 7 rebounds) and Jinyoung Kim (14 points, 7 rebounds), she properly maintained her height advantage.
Samsung Life, who started the second quarter with a 26-20 lead, was able to shake Shinhan Bank’s defense thanks to Lee Hae-ran (9 points) and Jo Soo-ah (13 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists). In 36-30, Bae Hye-yoon scored 6 points in succession in the paint zone, and soon after, Jo Soo-ah and Lee Myung-gwan added free throws to further widen the gap. In the 2nd quarter, Shinhan Bank’s field goal hit rate was 26.3% (19 attempts, 5 successes), and the first half ended with a 46-33 lead.
Samsung Life Insurance, which once flowed, showed off a more fierce attack. In the 3rd quarter, 58-46, Jo Soo-ah and Lee Hae-ran ran away with consecutive goals in the paint zone, and in 62-48, Kim Dan-bi (8 points, 6 rebounds) immediately after Jo Soo-ah’s 3-point shot succeeded in both free throws obtained by opponent fouls. Samsung Life Insurance, who added 5 points with one attack, widened the gap to 21 points (69-48) by adding Shin Iseul (8 points).
Samsung Life gave Bae Hye-yoon a break throughout the 4th quarter and worked hard to arrange his physical strength. As the height was lowered, Shinhan Bank’s pursuit at the end of the game swayed for a while, but Shin Dew Seul’s 3-pointer 1 minute and 13 seconds before the end, leading 80-69, actually broke the game. 메이저사이트
