South Korea’s women’s basketball team had Park Ji Soo (25-KB).
South Korea struggled early against North Korea in the women’s basketball bronze medal match at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium in Hangzhou, China, on Friday.
North Korea took a 21-15 lead in the first quarter, led by 205-centimeter center Park Jin-ah, born in 2003, and the game remained close after South Korea pulled away in the second quarter.
But it was 40-33 at halftime. This was thanks to Park Ji-soo, who had 19 points and six rebounds in the first half alone.
With Park’s presence in the game, South Korea was able to pull away in the third quarter when Kim Dan-bi (Woori Bank) exploded on offense and eventually won the bronze medal with a 93-63 victory.
Park Ji-soo totaled 25 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists for a 온라인카지노 “triple-double” performance that helped South Korea win the bronze medal.
After the game, Park said, “I knew it was going to be a tough game. It was difficult in the beginning, but it feels good to have a big win at the end,” Park smiled.
“The atmosphere was a bit chaotic in the first half, and everyone seemed to be nervous, but I wasn’t nervous at all,” he said, adding, “I thought I should be more aggressive to keep the center firmly in place.”
“When we first met North Korea, it was difficult because we didn’t have any videos and didn’t know what kind of play they like to do,” Park added, “but once we got to know them and their strengths, I think it was easier to play.
North Korea, who we faced in the group stage and bronze medal match, had played with us five years ago at the Jakarta-Palembang Games.
Some of the players from that team were included in both the North and South Korean squads. Park Ji-soo is one of them.
“When I came here on the first day, I greeted the North Korean athletes when I met them at the athletes’ village, but they didn’t seem to be able to greet me. I saw them smiling from behind, but I felt that they couldn’t greet us,” Park said.
“We were one team then, and now we’re the other team, but there’s not much difference. At first, I was happy to see him, but then I thought he was an opponent like China or Japan, so I didn’t feel much,” he added. 슬롯
