The 2022-2023 season women’s professional basketball schedule ended as the joys and sorrows of Woori Bank, the ‘best ever’ and ‘best active’ KB Stars, were mixed.
After winning the regular league championship with 25 wins and 5 losses, Woori Bank also won 3 consecutive victories over BNK in the championship match (3 wins in 5 matches) and succeeded in winning the combined championship. At the same time, Woori Bank increased the record for winning the regular league (14 times), winning the championship (11 times), and winning the combined championship (10 times) by one each. Woori Bank coach Seong-woo Seong-woo (52), who has been in command of Woori Bank since the 2012-2013 season, ranked first in the championship game (18 wins) following the regular league (279 wins).
Recruiting Kim Dan-bi (33, forward), who played 15 seasons at Shinhan Bank alone, from the free agent (FA) market was a godsend for Woori Bank. Woori Bank finished second in the regular league last season after being pushed by KB Stars, and lost 3 times in a row to KB Stars in the championship match. Coach Wi, who was also a Shinhan Bank coach, decided that the national ace, Dan-bi Kim, was essential for the team to take off again, and succeeded in recruiting him after persistent persuasion.온라인바카라
Danbi Kim participated in all 30 regular league games, averaging 17.2 points (2nd), 8.8 rebounds (5th), 6.1 assists (2nd), 1.3 blocks (1st), and 1.5 steals (2nd). unfolded Kim Dan-bi, who won the regular league MVP for the first time in his professional debut, continued to play a big role in the semifinal playoffs and the championship game, even winning the championship MVP.
On the other hand, the ‘defending champion’ KB Stars failed to advance to the playoffs after 12 years due to the departure of team pillar Park Ji-soo (25, center). KB Stars confirmed first place in the regular league last season after 24 games, the lowest ever, and succeeded in winning the combined championship. Park Ji-soo was selected as the MVP in both the regular league and the championship game.
However, as Park Ji-soo was diagnosed with panic disorder before this season, KB Stars had a difficult start to the season. Park Ji-soo joined the team in the second half of the 3rd round, but KB Stars couldn’t help it, as he was ruled out for the season due to a finger injury after 9 games. KB Stars ended the season in 5th place with a record of 10 wins and 20 losses.
