The wind of generational change is blowing gently in women’s basketball. Among the young players who showed good form in the first half, who will continue their momentum in the second half?

Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s professional basketball turned a turning point. On the 8th, the Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball All-Star Festival also ended successfully, and the six clubs started preparing for the second half.

One of the keywords in the first half of last year was the rapid progress of young players. Young players from many clubs have gone beyond being supportive of the team and have played a role as a starter or key member. The development and growth of these young players is one of the things that delight fans this season.

First of all, Kang Yu-rim of Yongin Samsung Life Insurance is being mentioned as a MIP candidate for this season early on. Kang Yoo-rim, who not only scored her goals ahead of this season, but also revealed her determination to create her own goals.

Kang Yoo-rim recorded 42.6% of the 3-point shot success rate and is ranked second among players who have played more than 15 games. Her success count also ranks second in the league, putting in an average of 1.8 per game. The field goal rate is also 47.3%. Her name is nowhere near the top of the shooting index.

Asan Woori Bank’s Park Ji-hyeon and Busan BNK’s Lee So-hee, who are ‘draft motives’ for the growth of young players, cannot be left out. Park Ji-hyun is also showing his presence at Woori Bank, where Kim Dan-bi joined. He not only scored, but also stepped up in rebounding and assists.

Park Ji-hyun recorded 83 assists in the first half of this season, which is close to Park Ji-hyun’s total assists last season (91). Naturally, he is ranked 3rd in the league in assists (4.8) this season, and 5th in rebounds (7.7). At Woori Bank, which is full of veterans, Park Ji-hyun is being reborn as a ‘reliable man’.

BNK Lee So-hee is the protagonist of BNK’s rise this season. Sohee Lee is gradually replacing her question marks with her own exclamation marks. His two-handed breakthrough and explosive 3-point shot have established themselves as Lee So-hee’s powerful weapons. Lee So-hee is the dominant player in this category with 2.7 3-pointers per game. 메이저사이트

It is Lee So-hee, who has now become the No. 1 target of alert for the command towers facing BNK. Coaches often talk about blocking Lee So-hee before the match against BNK. Perhaps it was thanks to a clear step-up, Lee So-hee vomited the spirit of coming second in the All-Star Festival fan vote.

In Bucheon HanawonQ, where more young players play than any other team, there was a young player who caught the attention of many people. Go Seo-yeon is the main character. Seoyeon Ko is a rookie who debuted this season after being nominated for Hana 1Q in the 5th place in the 2nd round.

The rookie player played an active role like a ray of light for a team that was suffering from line injuries to key players. On December 15, 2021, Go Seo-yeon, who played more than 20 minutes in the Shinhan Bank match, performed well by scoring 12 or more points in all three games. In addition to his simple performance, Go Seo-yeon’s confident grab and attack was perhaps the most needed play for Hana 1Q.

Woori Bank coach Seong-woo Seong-woo applauded the young players’ performances. Coach Seong-woo Seong-woo said, “I think it is encouraging that young players come up. Usually, even after the 3rd round, if the performance continues, it is yours. It’s been a while since young players like this came up. Everyone will be better in the future. Women’s basketball will also develop further because these players come out,” she said with a hearty smile.

Now it’s the second half. The players who performed well in the first half will have to continue this atmosphere. Each team may have different reasons for their performance, but it is clear that their performance is a tremendous force for the team. Let’s see who will be the young player who will be the main character in the second half.
