“There are players who will return.”

Incheon Shinhan Bank Lee Kyung-eun contributed to the team’s 43-35 victory by recording eight points, three rebounds, and one assist in the match against Woori Bank’s Woori WON 2023-2024 Women’s Professional Basketball Yongin Samsung Life Insurance at Yongin Gymnasium on the 15th.

“First of all, I’m glad that I won the first game of the second half of the year. I think I need to increase the number of wins,” Lee said after the game.

The game was a low-scoring game. Even if the two teams’ scores were added together, it did not reach 80 points. However, it is a meaningful win for Shinhan. The biggest point was that it tied the opponent team to 35 points. Coach Gunathan’s rotation defense, which he had prepared focusing on Kim Tae-yeon, hit the mark.

Lee Kyung-eun said, “Big man plays a big role in basketball, so Tae-yeon’s standing alone helped a lot. I think I won the rebound fight because I endured it. I’ve already stabilized psychologically and made a big difference in gaining confidence.”

In addition, the rebounding team had a 45-25 advantage. Its offensive rebound was 14-5. “The coach emphasized a lot of rebounds while preparing for the game against Samsung Life Insurance during the break. We also knew it was important and we knew if we didn’t do it, we couldn’t win,” Lee said.

Shinhan Bank has secured three wins in this season as well as its first win in the second half of the season. Captain Lee Kyung-eun also worked hard to secure a valuable win in the game. She also expressed how much pressure she felt as a captain. Han Chae-jin retired and her team fell to sixth place, which gave her huge influence. However, Lee did not lose confidence.

“I think it was really hard in the beginning. I was not in a position to balance myself as Chae-jin was absent and the injured kept coming out. I needed to give confidence to young players, but I felt sorry for those things as I kept losing. However, I think I can show good performances in the second half of the year because there are players who will return.”
