Lee Kyung-eun (174cm, G) was quiet and efficient.
Incheon Shinhan Bank defeated Bucheon Hanawon Q 85-72 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball regular league held at the Bucheon Indoor Gymnasium on the 6th. Achieved 3 wins in a row. With 13 wins and 10 losses, he tied for third place with Yongin Samsung Life Insurance.
Shinhan Bank has reached the playoffs for two consecutive seasons from the 2020-2021 season. It was an achievement that exceeded everyone’s expectations. This is because both seasons were listed as ‘playoff elimination candidates’ or ‘lowest candidate’ before the opening.
Former coach Chung Sang-il created the frame of ‘strong defense’ and ‘fast basketball’ well, and coach Guna Dan added details. It was also great that Kim Dan-bi (180cm, F), who was the ace, held the center well.
Shinhan Bank’s lineup by position was also not bad. Especially the guard line was like that. Lee Kyung-eun, who was the captain and the oldest guard in the 2020-2021 season, showed a veteran-like performance. Shinhan Bank’s aggressive style was maximized through skillful game management.
Also, Lee Kyeong-eun was somewhat free from knee pain in the last two seasons. In all regular league games (30 games) in the 2020-2021 season, he recorded 8.0 points, 2.8 assists and 2.4 rebounds in an average of 24 minutes and 34 seconds, and in the 2021-2022 regular league season, he scored 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.8 in an average of 21 minutes and 15 seconds in 23 games. Worked great as an assistant.
However, Shinhan Bank underwent major changes after the end of the 2021-2022 season. Danbi Kim (180cm, F), who was released as an ace and free agent, moved to Asan Woori Bank. Because the player who held the center left the team, the power loss suffered by Shinhan Bank was great. In addition, Han Eom-ji (180cm, F), who is tall and has a shooting distance, also wore the Busan BNK Some uniform.
Lee Kyung-eun’s role has become more important. He had to show his presence as a veteran. Specifically, creating a synergistic effect between existing players and newly joined players. Lee Kyung-eun focused on tying the team together. Here, the winning point was added.
Unlike usual, Shinhan Bank put in Kim Tae-yeon (189cm, C). It was to strengthen the height. Lee Kyung-eun knew this too. So he left the ball to the forward line or Kim Tae-yeon. I waited for a shooting opportunity on the other side of the forward line and Kim Tae-yeon.
However, Kim Tae-yeon could not show great strength. Gunadan Shinhan Bank coach called Kim Tae-yeon to the bench 4 minutes and 27 seconds into the game. Lee Kyung-eun’s strategy had to change. Lee Kyung-eun was aggressive. He reported his first goal as a dribble jumper, and after the first goal, he induced a turnover of Hana 1Q. He scored easily. He led the come-from-behind game with 4 consecutive points. Shinhan Bank finished the first quarter with a score of 15-13.
Shinhan Bank raised the tempo even more. Attack development speed increased. Outside resources gained confidence in it. Lee Kyung-eun was one of them. It wasn’t 3 points on a fast attack, but 3 points after a quick ball development. It was enough to shake the Hana One Q. In addition, he opened up a way for his teammates with 4 assists in the 2nd quarter alone.
But there was an element of anxiety. The point is that Lee Kyung-eun committed the third foul 55.1 seconds before the end of the second quarter. The threads of Shinhan Bank’s attack were also mixed. The first half ended 37-32, but the content and process of the game were not very good.
Shinhan Bank had to overcome those points in the third quarter. It was the same with Lee Kyung-eun. He scored a meaningful goal in 2 minutes and 7 seconds from the start of the 3rd quarter. Successful shot from well away from the 3-point line. Shinhan Bank, which was chased 41-39, maintained a 5-point gap with Hana 1Q at 44-39. 토토사이트
Lee Kyung-eun stepped down to the bench, but Lee Hye-mi (170cm, G) performed more than expected. She consistently hit the 3-point shot and dribble jumper, and even got a foul free throw in a loose ball fight. 6 points in the 3rd quarter only. Lee Kyung-eun was able to rest comfortably. Shinhan Bank finished the third quarter with a score of 60-51.
However, Lee Kyung-eun committed her fourth foul 3 minutes and 4 seconds into the fourth quarter. It was a crisis. Nevertheless, Lee Kyung-eun remained calm. In particular, in 3 minutes and 51 seconds from the start of the 4th quarter, he scored a 3-point run to 69-59. He also induced a second time-out in the second half of coach Do-Wan Kim’s Hana One Q.
After Lee Kyung-eun’s 3 points, Shinhan Bank took a breather. dominated until the end. Lee Kyung-eun recorded 13 points, 7 assists, 2 rebounds and 1 steal in 24 minutes and 48 seconds. The field goal success rate is about 71% (2 points: 2/3, 3 points: 3/4). He quietly demonstrated his own effectiveness. That’s why Kyungeun Lee’s performance against Hana 1Q was scary.
