Cheongju KB, a women's professional basketball team, completely defeated Incheon Shinhan Bank and took the sole lead with 5 consecutive wins.

KB defeated Shinhan Bank 77-53 in the home game of the Woori Bank Woori WON 2023-2024 Women's Professional Basketball Regular League held at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 30th.

KB, which tied for first place (6 wins, 1 loss) three days ago after suffering its first loss of the season to Asan Woori Bank, which was on a 6-game winning streak since the opening, continued its momentum and became the sole leader (7 wins, 1 loss) with 5 consecutive wins.

On the other hand, Shinhan Bank has not won a single game since the start of this season and fell into a 7-game losing streak, tying the club's record for the most consecutive losses, and ranked 6th, the lowest.

KB dominated the game 29-10 from the first quarter with strong defensive focus and superior rebounding.

In attack, Park Ji-su and Kang I-seul scored 8 points each, and Kim Min-jung scored 7 points, including a 3-pointer just before the end of the first quarter.

KB, which widened the gap, led 37-14 with 4 minutes and 5 seconds left in the second quarter, brought in rookie Ko Hyun-ji, who was selected first overall in this season's draft, and gave her a chance to make her professional debut.

Ko Hyun-ji is the daughter of Cho Moon-ju, a former national women's basketball team player who played for Kookmin Bank, a corporate team during her days as a player.

At the end of the first half, Ko Hyun-ji made her professional debut with a 3-pointer, making it 48-18 and giving KB a 30-point lead.

With 6 minutes and 2 seconds left in the third quarter, Kang Yi-seul's outside gun hit, widening the gap to as many as 40 points (64-24), and the game was decided early on.

Kang I-seul scored 20 points, the most for both teams, including 5 3-point shots, and Park Ji-soo scored 17 points and 8 rebounds in only 16 minutes.

In her debut game, Ko Hyun-ji added 6 points and recorded a rebound, a steal, and a blocked shot.

KB was significantly ahead of Shinhan Bank (29% field goals, 30 rebounds, 12 assists) in most indicators, including a 43% field goal success rate, 43 rebounds, and 21 assists.

At Shinhan Bank, Lee Da-yeon, who scored 10 points, was the only double-digit scorer. 스포츠토토맨
