Kim Jong-un becomes 2nd in career scoring… Women’s Basketball Hana WonQ, Busan Seo BNK ring in…

Women’s professional basketball team Bucheon Hana OneQ suffered a heartbreaking home loss to Busan BNK in the first ‘basketball doubleheader’ to be held in Korea.

Hana WonQ defeated BNK 63-54 in an away game of the Woori Bank Woori WON 2023-2024 Women’s Professional Basketball League regular season at Sajik Gymnasium in Busan on the 25th to claim their second win of the season (5 losses).

The game was the first of a doubleheader organized by the men’s and women’s professional basketball programs.

About an hour later, at 5 p.m., Busan-based men’s team Busan KCC will face Daegu Korea Gas Corporation at the same venue.

“We want to win the first game (of the doubleheader) so that KCC can play with excitement,” Park said before the game, but BNK struggled from the start.

Trailing 14-17 after one quarter, BNK scored just nine points in the second quarter.

After reaching 19 points with 6:27 left in the quarter, BNK went more than five minutes without scoring.

With Kim Han-byul, BNK’s leading scorer, out with an injury, Jin-an was stuck behind the opponent’s forward line of Yang In-young and Kim Eun-jeong and was unable to do her job.

Whenever point guard Ahn Hye-ji, whose shooting ability has been cited as a weakness, got the ball, Hana OneQ’s players played aggressive sagging defense, leaving no space under the basket for Jinan to operate.

Jinan pulled away in the third quarter with a 12-point run, but the lead grew to 15 points with just over five minutes left in the game, further tilting the game in Hana OneQ’s favor.

With two wins and five losses, fifth-ranked Hana OneQ did not move up to fourth place. However, they are having a smoother start to the season than last season, when they lost 16 times before picking up two wins.

On the other hand, BNK (2-4), which reached the championship game last season, lost its third straight game to fall further behind leaders Asan Woori Bank (6) and Cheongju KB (5-1).

The team struggled mightily from the perimeter, shooting 17 three-pointers and making none of them.

Hana OneQ’s “returning veteran” Kim Jong-kyu scored 14 points on the night to move past BNK’s Byun Yeon-ha (7,863 points) into second place on the all-time regular-season scoring list in the women’s professional basketball league (7,874 points). The top spot in that category belongs to former national team coach Chung Sun-min (8,140 points).

Drafted by Hana OneQ’s predecessor Shinsegae with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 rookie draft, Kim played for only one team until 2017. After playing for Woori Bank until last season, Kim returned to his parent team ahead of this season. 메이저 토토사이트
