KB Park Ji-soo (23, photo), a women’s professional basketball team, is the signboard of the team and more than the greats of Korean women’s basketball. This is because it is a large center with international competitiveness with excellent athletic ability and height of 196cm. He was nominated as 5th in the second round in the 2018 Women’s Professional Basketball (WNBA) New Draft, and played two seasons at Las Vegas Aces for two seasons before Corona 19.
The domestic WKBL stage went on to pacify with the debut. Following the rookie king in the 2016-2017 season, in the 2018-2019 season, KB led the first unified championship, sweeping away the best player (MVP) in the regular season and championship match. However, there were times when we suffered a slump due to the opponent’s concentration checks and excessive criticism from some fans, but there is no disagreement that he is a player who will lead Korean women’s basketball for the next 10 years, no matter what. In particular, the power of Park Ji-soo in the 2020-2021 season, played without foreign players, is even more enormous. As of the 16th, it is leading the way in three categories: 23.37 points on average, 14.63 rebounds, and 68 block 2s.
Park Ji-soo has set another milestone in WKBL. Park Ji-soo recorded a’double double’ with 26 points and 18 rebounds, the most in the team at the home game against Samsung Life at the Cheongju Gymnasium on the 17th. With this, Park Ji-soo continued’Double Double’ for 23 consecutive games by adding 3 games of last season to all 20 games of this season. This is the new record for double doubles in the most consecutive matches over 22 games set by Shinhan Bank Travesa Gent in 2005. Park Ji-soo added two blocks to this, recording the ninth and youngest personal life of 300 blocks as a bonus.
KB removed Samsung Life’s relentless follow-up with the performances of Park Ji-soo, Kim Min-jeong (12 points) and Kang A-jeong (11 points) to 72-67. KB, which has already confirmed the advancement to the playoffs in which the quarterfinals are competing, secured the lead by widening the gap with Woori Bank, the second place by one game, with 16 wins and 4 losses with this victory. Samsung Life, who lost that day, held the fourth place with a 10-10 loss. Samsung Life was ahead of the company by four points with 64-60 points until three minutes after the end of the fourth quarter, but in the end, it could not overcome the height of KB that preceded Park Ji-soo.
