Cheongju KB

On the 13th, KB neatly finished the semifinal playoffs (3 wins out of 5) against Bucheon Hana One Q, 4th place in the regular league, with 3 consecutive wins, and Woori Bank lost the first game against 3rd place Yongin Samsung Life Insurance, but played the next three games.

He swept and won a ticket to the championship match on the 16th.

The championship match, which consists of 3 wins out of 5, will be held every other day, starting with the first match at the Cheongju Gymnasium in North Chungcheong Province on the 24th.

KB and Woori Bank, which have recently established a ‘two-strong system’ in women’s basketball, met in the championship game for the fourth time in 10 years.

In the 2014-2015 and 2017-2018 seasons, Woori Bank won by defeating KB 3-1 and 3-0, respectively, and in the 2021-2022 season, Cheongju KB beat Woori Bank 3-0.

Even in the 2019-2020 season, when the regular league ended midway due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) and the championship match was not held, Woori Bank ranked first and KB ranked second, so there was a high possibility of meeting in the championship match.

At the end of the regular season, the momentum of the two teams was so overwhelming that Woori Bank had 21 wins and 6 losses, KB had 20 wins and 8 losses, and third place Hana One Q had 11 wins and 16 losses.

Asan Woori Bank

KB is the team where Park Ji-soo’s presence stands out the most.

Ji-Soo Park swept the Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards in rounds 1 to 5 out of all 6 rounds this season, and also dominated the All-Star MVP.

He also took first place in major personal record categories such as points, rebounds, and blocked shots.

Additionally, if Kang Yi-seul, who hit five 3-pointers in the third game of the playoffs, comes back to life, the possibility of reclaiming the overall championship crown after two years increases.

If Woori Bank’s ‘ace’ Kim Dan-bi’s performance is supported by Park Ji-hyun and Park Hye-jin, they can not only win the championship game for two consecutive years, but also avenge the 0-3 loss to KB in the championship game two years ago.

Also, since Woori Bank is the title sponsor this season, they will be more motivated to win the championship.

In the regular league this season, KB had the upper hand with 4 wins and 2 losses in 6 meetings.
