‘Slowdown in the second half’, but BNK is getting stronger
Busan BNK Some created a stir at the beginning of the season by running the club’s most consecutive wins (6 consecutive wins). Transfer student Han Eom-ji successfully integrated into the team, and Ahn Hye-ji played the role of ‘field commander’ by recording an average of double-digit assists. Kim Han-byeol also showed great success as if entering playoff mode.
BNK competed for first place with Woori Bank and Samsung Life Insurance, and these three teams were classified as ‘Top 3’. BNK coach Jeongeun Park waved his hand whenever he heard that BNK was a strong team. Director Park Jeong-eun said, “It is a team that still needs to learn and grow. I think the players are figuring out how to play as a team. The players are gaining confidence,” he said, adding that there is still a long way to go.
In women’s basketball, the first half is over and the second half is now in progress. BNK is still at the top of the list. BNK is tied for second place (11 wins, 8 losses) with Yongin Samsung Life Insurance. In a situation where Samsung Life Insurance lost its main player, BNK has the upper hand in the ranking battle for second place.
However, in the second half, 먹튀검증 BNK is not able to show the performance as well as in the first half. In the second half of the 2 matches, they won 1 and lost 1. It was defeated by KB Stars by 1 point, and 1 win was also a difficult victory against Samsung Life Insurance, where the main player left.
This, too, is the process of advancing to a strong team. No matter how many points they are trailing, the power to pursue them and overcome the opponents are the requirements of a strong team. These forces will become the strength of the team and will make the team stronger. BNK created scenes that showed that these forces were developing, even if their performance was poor in the second half.
In the match against Samsung Life Insurance on the 16th, BNK overcame the opponent’s strong pursuit and won a new victory (72-71) by one point through Lee So-hee’s great performance. Lee So-hee scored 7 points in the last 4 minutes of the game. This must have been a nourishment for both Lee So-hee and the team.
The match against KB Stars on the 21st was also defeated by 1 point (61-62), but the pursuit process that BNK showed in the 4th quarter was impressive. BNK overturned the game, which had been up to 10 points at the beginning of the 4th quarter, through Lee So-hee’s 3-point shot and Kim Han-byeol’s goal.
Afterwards, they allowed a 4-point lead 55 seconds before the end of the game, but the players did not give up until the end. Han Umji put in a 3-point shot from a corner, and Jinan, who was sluggish, overturned the game again with a score under the goal. It was a game that allowed Kim Min-jung to shoot under the goal and lost, but it was a game that confirmed BNK’s potential.
After the match, BNK coach Jeongeun Park also applauded the team despite the loss. Manager Park Jeong-eun said, “In the past, when a team scored more than 10 points, it tended to collapse without strength. However, now the players showed a chasing without collapsing. Unlike the last round, it was impressive to see him try to finish.”
BNK, which has been doing well this season, is now gradually transforming into a strong team rather than a ‘shiny’ team. The road ahead is tough, but let’s see how far BNK’s journey this season will go. BNK will play against Shinhan Bank at home on the 27th.
