In the history of women’s professional basketball,

the probability of advancing to the championship game for a team that won both the first and second games in a PO of 3 wins out of 5 games is ‘100%’ (8 out of 8).

Hana 1Q ranked 4th in the regular league this season and advanced to the PO for the first time since the team was founded in 2012,

but was driven to the brink and is aiming for a counterattack at Bucheon Gymnasium, its home stadium, on the 13th.

With 7 minutes and 19 seconds left in the second quarter of a close game,

KB faced a huge variable: the injury of ‘pillar’ Park Ji-soo.

Ji-Soo Park, who made the score 22-20 with a finish under the goal following an offensive rebound,

complained of pain in her right ankle after landing uneasily.

Jisoo Park could not play the remaining time in the first half, but KB took control of the game.

At 22-22, they scored 12 points in a row, starting with Kim Ye-jin’s 3-pointer,

and ran away to 34-22 4 minutes and 14 seconds before the end of the second quarter.

Heo Ye-eun roamed the length and breadth of the court regardless of scoring,

assisting, or stealing, and Yun-ah Yeom provided steady support.

Afterwards, Hana One Q finished the first half by trailing 29-34 thanks to the fighting spirit of veteran Kim Jong-un,

who scored 7 points alone, and in the early part of the second half,

Shin Ji-hyun and Kim Jong-un’s successive outside shots exploded to trail the team at 37-38.

However, Park Ji-soo, who returned without any major problems,

steadily scored points under the goal, and KB, whose frustrating outside defense began to open up,

ran away with a 52-42 lead at the end of the third quarter.

Hana One Q was unable to provide an opportunity for a significant turnaround after Kim Jong-un,

who was struggling with 17 points and 6 rebounds, the most points in the team on this day,

retired with 5 fouls with 5 minutes and 30 seconds left in the 4th quarter.

Following the first game (17 points, 15 rebounds),

Park Ji-soo recorded a double-double with 17 points and 22 rebounds,

and also made a great performance by providing 5 assists.

Kim Min-jung added 10 points and Heo Ye-eun added 8 points.
