Women’s professional basketball team Bucheon Hana OneQ defeated Incheon Shinhan Bank to record its first win after a four-game losing streak to open the season.
Hana OneQ defeated Shinhan Bank 79-65 on the road in the Woori Bank Woori WON 2023-2024 Regular Season at 온라인카지노 Dowon Gymnasium in Incheon on Monday afternoon.
Breaking its opening four-game losing streak, Hana OneQ (5-1-1) escaped from the bottom of the standings.
Meanwhile, Shinhan Bank, which was unable to pick up a win even against the underdog Hana OneQ, dropped its opening four-game losing streak and slipped to sixth place.
Ace Shin Ji-hyun was all over the place with 17 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds.
Kim Jong-un, who played for Asan Woori Bank until last season and is back with his “parent” team, Hana OneQ, also contributed 14 points.
Drafted first overall in the 2006 rookie draft by Hana Wonq’s predecessor Shinsegae, Kim only played for one team until 2017.
Hana OneQ also got solid performances from Uhm Seo-i (12 points), Yang In-young (10 points), Kim Anna (9 points), and Kim Hana (8 points).
Shinhan Bank, on the other hand, saw their ace, Kim Sonia, struggle with just 7 points and 8 rebounds on the day.
Kim Sonia struggled with a poor shooting touch, missing 11 of her 14 field goals.
Kim Ji-young and Lee Da-yeon split the scoring with 13 points apiece, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Shinhan Bank from losing.
Prior to the game, an official retirement ceremony was held for Han Chae-jin, a 1984-born forward who took the court last season as the oldest active player.
Han Chae-jin left Jungdan Court for the last time during the second round of the 2022-2023 season’s Playoffs (PO) between Shinhan Bank and Woori Bank on March 13 at Dowon Gymnasium.
