Women’s basketball Samsung Life, KB complete… One step ahead of the ‘fourth place avoidance’ competition
Women’s professional basketball Yongin Samsung Life Insurance defeated Cheongju KB and occupied an advantage in the competition to ‘avoid 4th place’.
Samsung Life defeated KB 70-59 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball regular league home game held at Yongin Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 20th.
Samsung Life Insurance (16-11) widened the gap with Incheon Shinhan Bank (15-12) in third place by one game.
It is one and a half games behind 4th place Busan BNK (14-12).
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, their power is similar enough to judge that each other is worth trying, so the aspect of ‘avoiding fourth place’ unfolds between these three teams.
With this victory, Samsung Life Insurance is more likely to finish the season with higher grades than fourth place.
If Samsung Life Insurance wins all three remaining regular league games, it will be 19-11, but even if BNK, currently ranked 4th, wins all subsequent matches, it will only end at 18-12.
The problem is that unlike Samsung Life Insurance, BNK has to play against Woori Bank on the 22nd, so the schedule is difficult.
BNK has lost 5 matches to Woori Bank this season.
Meanwhile, KB (9 wins), who failed to reach the playoffs in 12 years, suffered their 19th loss of the season.
Samsung Life faced the second half with a 36-20 lead thanks to Kang Yoo-rim, who scored 14 points in the first half alone.
The gap widened in the middle of the third quarter.
Samsung Life Insurance, who made a 20-point lead with Lee Hae-ran’s goal, scored the 50th point with Kang Yoo-rim’s third 3-point shot 2 minutes and 45 seconds before the end of the quarter. 온라인바카라
KB, who tried to counterattack, put Shim Seong-young and Huh Ye-eun at the same time and put pressure on the entire court.
In the attack, the team’s main gun Kang Iseul also scored 9 points, and KB succeeded in making a single-digit score difference one minute before the end.
However, 26 seconds before the end, Park Hye-mi of Samsung Life Insurance closed the game with a 3-point wedge from the corner.
Kang Yoo-rim took the lead in the victory by posting 23 points, the highest among both teams, and Lee Hae-ran also added 15 points and 8 rebounds.
