Asan Woori Bank coach Wi Sang-woo is not concerned about the results of the referee briefing session requested by Cheongju KB to the Women’s Korea Basketball League (WKBL) for the third game of the women’s professional basketball championship game (3 wins out of 5). He said no.

Coach Wi Sung-woo met with reporters ahead of the 4th round of the Woori Bank Woori WON 2023-2024 Women’s Professional Basketball Championship held at the Yi Sun-sin Gymnasium in Asan, South Chungcheong Province on the 30th and said about the results of WKBL’s referee briefing session, “KB is in a desperate situation. Personally, “I don’t care,” he said resolutely.

In the third game of the championship game on the 28th, KB, which led by 16 points in the second quarter against Woori Bank but lost 57-62 due to a comeback in the second half, requested a referee briefing session related to this game.

As WKBL announced that out of a total of 22 items that KB raised objections to, there was 1 misjudgment and 11 unknowns, the possibility was raised that the results of the referee briefing session could be a variable in the referee’s whistle in Game 4.

Coach Sangwoo Wi said, “I think we can do that. As a coach, you have to do whatever it takes to win,” but added, “I’m worried that the players might falter.”

He continued, “In order to win, we have to overcome those things. I hope the players will keep their mentality as they have done well in the playoffs (PO) so far.”

With some changes made in blocking KB ace Park Ji-su, ace Kim Dan-bi’s shoulders also became heavier.

Coach Wi said, “We need to check the referee’s standards well in the beginning,” and “But Danbi is an experienced player, so he called us this morning and said he had no choice but to adjust depending on the severity of the foul called. (Regarding Park Ji-soo’s defense) One or two details. “We talked about it,” he said.

Meanwhile, KB coach Kim Wan-soo, who is on the brink with 1 win and 2 losses, explained that he requested a referee briefing session because of the psychological issues of the players.

Coach Kim emphasized, “The purpose is not to slander the opponent,” and then added, “The psychological aspect of the players (related to the game) is more at play, and it was to provide a sense of stability.”

He added, “I was standing on the edge of a cliff, and I thought there shouldn’t be any regrets. I wanted to resolve that. I’m not asking you to change the call, and I’m not asking you to feel relieved.”

Coach Kim said to the players, “I told them to focus on what they are good at, doing the same physical fighting and being more confident in offense and defense.” 고스톱
