Yongin Samsung Life Insurance took a deep breath. ‘Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball’ entered the 5th round of the regular league and won two valuable wins in a row. On the 2nd, it defeated Asan Woori Bank, the leader, and on the 4th, it also defeated the lowest ranked Bucheon Hana One Q.
Samsung Life Insurance, who won 2 consecutive wins in the away game, broke away from 4 consecutive losses since the start of the second half and marked 3rd place with 13 wins and 10 losses. If the losing streak had been prolonged, it would have been impossible to guarantee not only 3rd place, but even 4th place, but it rebounded from a desperate crisis. If you add 3 wins out of the remaining 7 games, you will be able to confirm your 먹튀검증 advance to the playoffs (PO) on your own. The more defeats of rival 5th place Cheongju KB Stars increase, the higher the chances of Samsung Life Insurance advancing into PO.
In the second half, Samsung Life suffered from a power vacuum due to injuries to key players. In the last game of the first half, guards Lee Joo-yeon and Kiana Smith injured their knees at the same time and were judged to be out of the season.
The aftermath was evident. Shin I-seul and Jo Soo-ah, who were put in as substitute resources for Lee Joo-yeon and Smith, needed time to overcome the sudden increase in playing time and mental burden. Bae Hye-yoon, who should be centered in ball and defense, was greatly pushed back in games where he could not play. Looking back on the process of 4 consecutive losses, it did not seem easy for Samsung Life Insurance to secure grades within the 4th place, which is the last line for entering the PO in the remaining schedule.
Fortunately, as the game went on, he gradually improved, defeating Woori Bank, the ‘absolute first round’, and then defeating Hana 1 Q, gaining a foothold to get back on the right track. In particular, Shin Iseul hit an average of 2.5 3-pointers in the last 2 games and played an all-weather performance of 8.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Jo Soo-ah also recorded high contributions in both offense and defense, averaging 13.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 3.0 steals in two games. As Shin Iseul and Jo Soo-ah exerted their strength, the advantage of a team with a strong forward team was revived, and the fear of misfire in the PO was greatly reduced.
