Park Shinjah Cup semifinals become an international event…

The semifinals of the 2023 Park Shinja Cup, which has become an international women’s basketball tournament, have been organized as a ‘Korea-Japan game’.

In particular, the teams that dominated Korea and Japan last season will compete for the final spot.

Asan Woori Bank, the winner of the 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball season, lost 68-74 to Australia’s Bendigo Spirit in the fourth game of Group A at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 31st.

After defeating Japanese powerhouse Toyota Antelopes 93-90 in the opening game, Woori Bank showed its dominance as the strongest team in Korea with wins over Samsung Life in Yongin (76-67) and Shinhan Bank in Incheon (85-58), but the final group game was a bitter pill to swallow.

Woori Bank finished the group with a 3-1 record and retained the top spot in Group A. Toyota swept Samsung Sinsung to move to 3-1 alongside Woori, but fell to second place due to their inferior head-to-head record.

Woori Bank will play the semifinal against Group B runner-up Eneos Sunflowers at 11 a.m. on March 2. Eneos has won the Japan W-League for 11 consecutive years.

Bendigo (2-2) finished fourth in Group A and will play Bucheon Hana OneQ (1-3), who finished fourth in Group B, in the seventh place match.

Woori Bank was heavily outrebounded in this game.

While Woori grabbed 33 rebounds, their opponents grabbed 53.

In particular, they gave 19 rebounds, including 11 offensive rebounds, to 6-foot-9 Alicia Frohling. Frohling also made 13 free throws and scored 26 points.

For Woori Bank, Park Ji-hyun contributed 26 points and 10 rebounds, while Noh Hyun-ji added 15 points, including five 3-pointers, but the team was limited to six and five points from starters Kim Dan-bi and Yoo Seung-hee, who played 38 minutes each.

Cheongju KB, who are looking to win the title in the new season with Korean women’s basketball’s “Dae Dae Bo” Park Ji-soo, thrashed the Philippine National Team 91-66.

KB, who won all four of their group games, will face Group B’s second-place Toyota in the quarterfinals next month at 2 p.m. on March 2.

The last-place Philippine National Team, which has lost all four of its games, will play the ninth-place game against Group A’s last-place Samsung Life (4 losses).

In this game, KB dominated the Filipinos in the paint. KB grabbed 45 rebounds, while their opponents only managed 27.

Park Ji-soo scored 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds while playing only 14 minutes.

Gunner Kang Isul scored 13 points, including three 3-pointers, while Kim Ye-jin added 14 points. Yeom Yoon-ah (12 points) and Lee Yoon-mi (11 points) also scored in double figures.

Toyota, last season’s Japan W-League runner-up, snapped Samsung Life’s four-game losing streak with an 89-76 victory.

For Samsung Life, Yoo Seung-hee exploded for a game-high 29 points, including five 3-pointers, while Lee Hye-ran did her part with 19 points and nine rebounds, but they couldn’t get past Toyota.

They couldn’t stop guard Mai Yamamoto, who scored 28 points on eight 3-pointers.

Center Kadisha Juna Umezawa also contributed 18 points and eight rebounds, and Samsung Life dominated under the basket.

Eneos defeated Hana OneQ 82-62.
