In the 2020-2021 season, women’s professional basketball is flowing into the Yanggang system of KB and Woori Bank. With 9-10 games left per team, the two teams have already confirmed their advance to the semifinal playoffs (PO). Now, attention is focused on which of the two teams will win the regular league.

The fifth season of the season between KB and Woori Bank, which will be the watershed, will be held at the Cheongju Gymnasium, the home court of KB on the 21st. With 2 wins and 2 losses in the previous 4 matches, KB 1st (16 wins 4 losses) and Woori Bank 2nd place (15 wins 6 losses) ride 1.5 games, and if KB wins this day, they will run away by 2.5 games to solidify the lead. I can. However, if Woori Bank wins, it will be narrowed down to the 0.5-game gap and a fierce lead fight is expected to unfold.

Unfortunately, it is interesting to note that the protagonists who are leading the generation change of women’s basketball for both teams hold the key to the game. KB’s ace Park Ji-soo (23·196 cm) and Woori Bank’s rising star Park Ji-hyun (21·183 cm) are the main characters. Center Park Ji-soo is the best player in the league, ranking first in scoring, rebounding, and block shooting, and taking the lead in the overall contribution category. In addition, Park Ji-hyun, who has grown into the team’s signature after 3 years as a professional, is playing all-around activities such as 6th in scoring, 2nd in rebounds, and 1st in steel, taking advantage of the tall guard and traveling inside and out. Since these are the timbers that will lead the Korean women’s basketball for the next 10 years, there is high expectation that each team will compete with rivals and grow together.

The veterans of both teams who will support these young blood are also an important match. KB’s shooter Kang A-jeong (32·180 cm), who pops three stores at every important moment, supports Park Ji-soo. Woori Bank, who fell into Kim Jong-un’s injury, is determined to catch KB with Park Hye-jin (31·178 cm) and Kim Sonia (28·176 cm) forming a ‘triangular flight’ with Park Ji-hyun.
