There were no regrets from last season. Women’s professional basketball (WKBL) Asan Woori Bank continued to dominate the first round this season and reigned supreme.
Woori Bank defeated Busan BNK 76-52 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball round 5 away game held at the Sajik Indoor Gymnasium in Busan on the 13th.
With this victory, Woori Bank, who recorded 21 wins and 4 losses (0.840 win rate) for the season, loses all remaining games and the ranking will not change even if second place Yongin Samsung Life wins. With this, Woori Bank achieved its 14th regular league title in its career.
Woori Bank, which had an absolute advantage by winning 4 matches against BNK until the 4th round, continued the trend on this day as well. In particular, as the second half progressed, Woori Bank continued to widen the score gap by showing back. Woori Bank, which overcame BNK’s pursuit, lifted the championship trophy in Busan.
In the late 2000s, Woori Bank inherited the baton from Shinhan Bank in Incheon and established a dynasty in women’s professional basketball. After the appointment of coach Sung-Woo Lee, Woori Bank won the combined championship for 6 consecutive seasons from the 2012-2013 season. However, since then, Woori Bank has not been able to achieve a consolidated championship since the 2019-2020 season, when the season ended early due to Corona 19.
In particular, in the 2020-2021 season, even after winning the regular season, he had the disgrace of being eliminated after being reverse-sweeped by Yongin Samsung Life in fourth place in the playoffs. Coach Wi also recalled that time after winning the regular league this year.
The desperate Woori Bank recruited Kim Dan-bi (33), the best forward in women’s basketball, as a free agent ahead of this season. As the national team was recruited, expectations for an increase in power were circulating.
And as soon as the 2022-2023 season began, Woori Bank started hitting. Except for the Samsung Life Insurance match (74-85 loss) on November 12 last year, they ran without knowing defeat. Woori Bank finished the first half with an overwhelming record of 16 wins and 1 loss (0.941 win rate).
Woori Bank, which continued its momentum after the All-Star Game, won the match against BNK on January 14th, 68-56, and achieved the team’s 14th consecutive win in 6 years and 10 months. In February, they recorded their first consecutive loss of the season, but Woori Bank’s momentum was not rough, and eventually brought them supremacy in the regular league. 스포츠토토
