On this day, Jo Soo-ah recorded the first double-double of his career. What stood out in particular was the rebound. He kicked a whopping 11 rebounds with active play in a small height of 170cm. Three of those were valuable offensive rebounds.
“Actually, I’m not the type to obsess over records. I tried to do the dirty work first, and since my opponent was Woori Bank, I ran hard with the mindset that I had nothing to lose. He is often said to have good athletic ability, but he was worried about how to use it. He was confident in his jumping ability, so he participated in the rebound hard, and luckily the ball landed on me.” Joshua’s words
With Lee Joo-yeon and Kianna Smith out of the season, Samsung Life Insurance fell into a crisis as they lost five straight games. However, the victory over the leader Woori Bank made the season record 12 wins and 10 losses. The ride with 5th place Cheongju KB Stars (8 wins, 14 losses) took place again in 4 games.
Jo Soo-ah said, “I thought I could go to the playoffs without any problems before the injured player came out. The team fell into a losing streak due to unexpected circumstances. He doesn’t want to hear that the team is over just because an injured player is out. I want to show that young players do not go in and become negative.”
