KB coach Kim Wan-soo, whom I met after the game, said, “I didn’t expect this much, but it is (Park) Ji-soo. He didn’t play a lot of time, but he put it in the right place well,” he started the interview.
He continued, “I tried to reduce Sonia Kim’s score before the game, but she did well. And he tried to control his 3-point shot, which is half-and-half. Some he blocked well, some he allowed a lot of offensive rebounds, so he got eaten. Still, Jisoo made it look like Jisoo, and (Kang) Dewseul and (Kim) Minjeong held the center. It was a difficult game, but we played an expected game.”
On this day, KB attempted 19 three-point shots, only two were successful. However, he defeated his opponent by winning the paint zone fight. Regarding this, coach Kim said, “In the meantime, if I didn’t go in, I lost. But now, the index scores even from inside. In the future, the inside will be my strength, but I think I need to think more about the outside issues.”
Lastly, when I asked coach Kim about Park Ji-soo’s break training plan, he said, “(Jisoo) will improve his physical strength and body during the break period. Basketball is important, but this comes first. After that, I will match the offense and defense with the team. Looking at the situation, I will adjust the playing time.”
