“I will make the other person afraid of us.”

Shinhan Bank, which has won three games of the season, predicted a counterattack in the second half.

Incheon Shinhan Bank S-Bird won 43-35 in the fourth round match against Yongin Samsung Life Bloomings in the regular league of Woori Bank’s Woori WON 2023-2024 women’s professional basketball league at Yongin Gymnasium on the 15th.

Shinhan Bank won with Kim So-na (12 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists), Lee Kyung-eun (8 points, 3 rebounds), Jinyoung Kim (8 points, 8 rebounds), and Kim Tae-yeon (6 points, 7 rebounds).

“The players fought well. While preparing for the break, I think the defense against Keana Smith and Bae Hye-yoon worked well. It was hard in the rebound fight, but I think winning was the factor that led to the victory,” Shinhan Bank coach Gunadan said.

“I think it’s hard to be virtually perfect in basketball. It’s important not to make mistakes in the next play by making mistakes. Still, overall, what we prepared in the game went well. I tried to make the opponent confused about our defense, but I think those things went well,” he added.

On the day, Kim committed four fouls in the second quarter, putting him in danger of being sent off for five fouls. However, he played without fouls in the third and fourth quarters, playing a major role in his team’s victory.

“I thought players needed confidence. If players are going to be sent off for five fouls, they say it’s better to be bold and get sent off. Don’t be intimidated from the beginning. Still, Taeyeon held on for seven minutes. That’s why I think we endured well to the end and it was good that we practiced without Kim Taeyeon. It is fortunate that we played a game that we could win even if we did not score a shot. I want to say thank you to all the players,” he said.

Shinhan Bank scored only four points in the fourth quarter, but secured a stable lead by tying Samsung Life Insurance with eight points to secure the victory.

“I think it’s more important that the opponent team scored eight points than we scored four points. We were leading by 12 points anyway. It’s okay because we did those things to keep it. We virtually rotated seven players, but Ji-young (Kim) took some rest today because she was not in good condition. That’s why the team didn’t attack because the players lacked physical strength. However, it’s okay because the players focused on defense even if they lacked physical strength. Still, I don’t think fans will like it.”

Shinhan Bank had three wins and 14 wins in this season. It overtook BNK, ranking fifth, by a half-game, heralding a counterattack in the second half of the season.

“I want the other team to be afraid of us. I want them to think that if we lose to that team, we will be in big trouble, not because we are good at basketball. We do well every year and cannot grow every year. There are seasons like this and that, but we don’t want to show our tail. Now, we have 13 games left, and I think we can have a good game if we fight without giving in and being afraid of any other team. More important is how we fight than the difference between the 5th place. I will fight every game without thinking about ranking.”
