Regarding these difficulties, coach Jang Seon-hyung said, “Since there were many away games, the players must have had a lot of difficulty in terms of physical strength. Still, I think I was able to achieve good results by enduring and overcoming it.”

At the start of the 4th quarter, Suwon University succeeded in reversing with Jeon Hee-gyo and Lee Na-ra’s consecutive goals. In the ensuing attack, they succeeded in scoring and seemed to solidify their winning streak, but at the end of the fourth quarter, Ji-hyeon Mun gave a 3-point shot, allowing the score to be tied 65-65. It was a situation that could damage the morale of the players.

In the end, he said, “I still have time, so I will take enough rest and prepare well,” and promised to do well in the upcoming MBC and playoffs.
