Shinhan Bank returned to a 50% win rate. However, coach Gunadan emphasized that Shinhan Bank needs to change their mindset in order to become a strong team.
Incheon Shinhan Bank Sbird won 73-58 in the 3rd round of the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball Bucheon Hanawon Q held at Incheon Dowon Gymnasium on the 15th.
With this victory, Shinhan Bank recorded a season record of 7 wins and 7 losses, returning to a 50% win rate.
However, it was not a very satisfying performance. It was because Hana 1 Q had to leave due to injuries, including ace Shin Ji-hyeon, Yang In-young, and Kim Mi-yeon. Before the game, coach Kim Do-wan of Hanawon Q said, “It’s a really tough game with a lot of injuries. I hope this game will be an opportunity for young players to grow.”
Therefore, ahead of the game, coach Gunadan gave the team a special mission. It was to stick to the basics.
Coach Koo explained, “I told the players to stick to the basics. If I couldn’t keep the basics, I would drop them.”
However, for a long time after the game started, 안전놀이터 Shinhan Bank was dragged around by Hana One Q. At the start of the first quarter, he suffered from a serious emptiness, allowing Hana One Q a double-digit lead, and finished the first half behind 33-37.
In the second half, they succeeded in chasing and won a come-from-behind victory, but it was a difficult match for Shinhan Bank to feel satisfied.
After the game, coach Gunadan openly pointed out the players’ mental problems. His explanation was that in order to become a strong team, you shouldn’t show your hard work only when you are in a hurry.
Coach Koo said, “It was a game that made no sense to win after doing 9 turnovers from the beginning. Our players have a long way to go to become a mentally strong team. There are many things to correct in the mind. It is only then that the focus is on what the weak teams are doing,” he said.
He lamented, “Basic skills are not good at all. Passing is not good. Each pass is basic, but it did not work properly. Chest pass, bounce pass and catching are also not good, but I can not play the game. Everything is lacking.” .
Director Gunadan’s point is a point that Shinhan Bank must keep in mind in order to rebound higher. Shinhan Bank is currently 2.5 games behind No. 2 Samsung Life Insurance and 2 games behind No. 3 BNK. It’s not a huge difference, but it’s not a gap to be taken lightly either. In order to catch up with them, you have to win in the end against them. To do so, Shinhan Bank itself must become stronger.
Can coach Guna Dan’s public reprimand be a medicine for Shinhan Bank’s players? Shinhan Bank will play the last match of the 3rd round against KB on the 19th.
