In the first championship match of its founding, Busan BNK unfortunately finished runner-up.
BNK also lost in the 3rd game of the WKBL Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 season championship match (3 out of 5) against Woori Bank held at the Sajik Indoor Gymnasium in Busan on the 23rd, ending the season as runner-up.
BNK coach Park Jeong-eun said, “I am grateful to the players because they seem to have gone through a long journey well. While going through a lot of things, I knew what the players lacked, and I had an expensive experience,” he said. “The slogan to start the season was ‘step up’. It is a season in which each player has grown. It is a good experience that Ahn Hye-ji, Lee So-hee, and Han Um-ji took a long time to play and played their part. The players performed better than I thought. When you get stuck in the middle, there are also difficulties to solve. I think it will be a good foundation for preparing for the next season.” 스포츠토토
Coach Park was the first female coach to play a championship match. Manager Park said, “I played a lot of championship games as a player, but when I played the championship games as a leader, I felt that I was lacking. Next time I have a chance like this, I think I need to improve my skills with better tactics and less hard work for the players,” she pledged.
On this day, the BNK players lined up to congratulate the Woori Bank players on their victory. Director Park said, “I wanted to engrave in my eyes what the finale would look like while playing a good stage. Even though they were on the opposing team, I sincerely congratulated my teammates who had a hard time. I hope the players will see this and have a goal to stand there too.”
