The competition for second place in the regular league of’Shinhan Bank SOL 2022~2023 Women’s Professional Basketball’ is fierce. Yongin Samsung Life Insurance, who stood at the forefront, took a step ahead in the fight for second place by adding a precious one win.
Samsung Life Insurance beat Cheongju KB Stars at Yongin Gymnasium on the 20th in the final 6th round home game of the regular league, with Kang Yu-rim (23 points, 3 3-point shots) and other key players leading the way, winning 70-59. 2nd place Samsung Life Insurance (16-11) widened the gap with 3rd place Incheon Shinhan Bank (15-12) by one game. 4th place Busan BNK Some (14 wins 12 losses) ran away by 1.5 games.
Samsung Life’s next schedule is an away game against BNK on the 24th. This match is expected to be a watershed in the competition for second place. BNK will meet Asan Woori Bank, who confirmed the regular season championship, on the 22nd. Only when Woori Bank is caught will they face off against Samsung Life Insurance by reducing the gap to one game.
If BNK defeats even Samsung Life after Woori Bank, it will virtually secure second place. This is because BNK is ahead of both Samsung Life Insurance and Shinhan Bank in terms of relative performance during the season. However, if Samsung Life grabs BNK and continues its winning streak, the second place is likely to go to Samsung Life. If BNK loses to Woori Bank and Samsung Life one after another, Samsung Life’s second place is certain. In this case, Samsung Life Insurance only needs to win 1 win and 1 loss in the remaining 2 games, including the match against Shinhan Bank on the 26th. In that case, Samsung Life Insurance and Shinhan Bank can finish the regular league at the same rate, but Samsung Life Insurance has the upper hand in their opponents. 바카라사이트
