Park Shinjah Cup semifinals become international event

The semifinals of the Park Shinjah Cup are now a worldwide event…Champions from Korea and Japan square off in the semifinals.

The semifinals of the 2023 Park Shinja Cup, which has grown into an international women’s basketball tournament, will feature a “Korea-Japan” matchup.

In particular, the teams that dominated Korea and Japan last season will compete for the final.

Asan Woori Bank, the winner of the 2022-2023 women’s professional basketball season, lost 68-74 to Australia’s Bendigo Spirit in the fourth game of Group A at Cheongju Gymnasium on the 31st.

After defeating Japanese powerhouse Toyota Antelopes 93-90 in the opening game, Woori Bank showed its dominance as the strongest team in Korea with wins over Samsung Life in Yongin (76-67) and Shinhan Bank in Incheon (85-58), but the final group game was a bitter pill to swallow.

Woori Bank finished the group with a 3-1 record and retained the top spot in Group A. Toyota swept Samsung Life to move to 3-1 alongside Woori, but fell to second place due to their head-to-head record.

Woori Bank will play the semifinals against Group B runner-up Eneos Sunflowers at 11 a.m. on March 2. Eneos has won the Japan W-League for 11 consecutive years.

Bendigo (2-2) finished fourth in Group A and will play Bucheon Hana OneQ (1-3), who finished fourth in Group B, in the seventh place game.

Cheongju KB, who are looking to win the title in the new season with Korean women’s basketball’s “Dae Dae Bo” Park Ji-soo, thrashed the Philippine National Team 91-66.

KB, who won all four of their group games, will play Group B’s second-ranked Toyota in the quarterfinals next month at 2 p.m. on March 2.
