Coach Kim Wan-soo attributed the victory to the players.
Cheongju KB Stars, led by coach Kim Wan-soo, won the match against Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball Busan BNK Sum held at the Cheongju Gymnasium on the 11th and won 64-62 after a bloody battle that went to the second overtime. With this victory, KB continued its hopes for the playoffs.
Coach Kim 메이저놀이터Wan-soo said, “It was a very difficult game. I went to extension 5 times this season and went to 2nd extension 3 times. Still, I was ahead of the previous games, but I always played a game that was disappointing, but in this game, the players mentally endured well and did well,” he said of his victory feeling.
It was Kang Isul’s one-man show. He recorded 32 points, 22 rebounds and 2 steals, and led the team’s attack by creating a score of 30-20, and even succeeded in a dramatic buzzer-beater winning shot that ended the game. In particular, the 22 rebounds recorded the most rebounds in a single game in his personal career, surpassing the 13 rebounds recorded at the Samsung Life in Yongin on December 6, 2020.
Director Kim Wan-soo said, “Especially (Kang) Seul-yi did a really good job. Personally, I like the fact that he is overall responsible for the tough stuff like rebounding rather than scoring. I want to praise you so much.”
He continued, “Isn’t Dew Lee having many strengths? He’s available outside me, so he took the number 4 role from the last game and he seems to be performing well. He can’t keep writing, but he will try from time to time. Seul Lee also readily accepted the role of number 4.”
KB continued its hopes of advancing to the playoffs by winning the game that day. We need to win all of our remaining 5 matches. Regarding this, coach Kim Wan-soo said, “I will do my best for the rest of the game. The players did not give up either. Rather, it seems that I have become psychologically comfortable. I plan to focus on each and every one from now on.”
