Bae Hye-yoon (182cm, F) couldn’t laugh at the end.
Yongin Samsung Life Insurance lost to Incheon Shinhan Bank 73-77 in the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball regular league held at Incheon Dowon Gymnasium on the 26th. With 16 wins and 13 losses, Shinhan Bank tied for third place. Shinhan Bank recorded 4 wins and 2 losses in head-to-head matches.
The color that Samsung Life pursued from the off-season is ‘fast and aggressive basketball’. From the Park Shin-Ja Cup and practice matches, he showed explosive energy levels and overwhelming air-to-defense conversion speed. This is a possible color because Samsung Life Insurance has many young players available.
Also, the importance of the fast break in modern basketball has increased. The range of fast attacks has widened, and the number of options derived from quick attacks has also increased. It means that there are more options to kill opponents. For this reason, Samsung Life Insurance, like other clubs, added details to their fast-breaking training.
But set offenses are still important. Also, even if the importance of speed has increased, not all attacks can be performed quickly. That’s why we need a control tower or scorer who can take responsibility for set offenses. Bae Hye-yoon (182cm, F)’s presence is an absolute reason for Samsung Life Insurance.
But she, Bae Hye-yoon, worked hard on her treatment and rehabilitation throughout her off-season. This is because her Achilles tendinitis and pain in her knee plagued her Bae Hye-yoon. The reason Hyeyoon Bae watched her juniors play outside her court.

However, he did not play a big role in the match against Busan BNK Some, where the fight for second place took place two days ago. If they can’t do their part in the Shinhan Bank match, Samsung Life can fall to fourth place. If that happens, Samsung Life Insurance meets Woori Bank from the start.
So both Samsung Life Insurance and Bae Hye-yoon considered the Shinhan Bank War important. Samsung Life coach Lim Geun-bae also tried to include Bae Hye-yoon in the starting lineup. However, Bae Hye-yoon’s knee was not good. For that reason, Danbi Kim (175cm, F) replaced Hyeyoon Bae.
Samsung Life Insurance rose without Bae Hye-yoon. However, she gave the chase flow to Shinhan Bank. Samsung Life coach Lim Geun-bae put in Bae Hye-yoon 3 minutes and 46 seconds into the game.
Bae Hye-yoon seemed to be conscious of her uneasy knees. However, when Samsung Life needed a goal, Bae Hye-yoon stepped in. She boosted her momentum by scoring on a footback following partaking in an offensive rebound and scoring under the goal following a break through the baseline.

The spin move fadeaway following the post-up was also powerful. With a goal scored 4 minutes and 37 seconds before the end of the third quarter, Shinhan Bank induced the first timeout in the second half.
