Cheongju KB has a 2.5 game gap with 2nd place Asan Woori Bank (17 wins, 4 losses),

and if KB wins 7 of the remaining 8 games, it can confirm first place in the regular league even if Woori Bank wins all of the remaining 9 games.

KB struggled until the first half of the day, losing 14 points to Samsung Life Insurance, 33-47.

However, in the third quarter alone, Kang I-seul and Heo Ye-eun kicked two 3-pointers each to catch up and ended the third quarter with a 64-62 lead.

KB, which faced Samsung Life Insurance 66-66 until about 2 minutes after the start of the 4th quarter,

ran away to 70-66 with Park Ji-soo’s consecutive points, and then Kang I-seul’s mid-range shot and Yeom Yun-ah’s two free throws tied the game at 1 minute and 52 minutes.

Seconds ago, they created an 8-point gap and decided the winner.

KB Jisoo Park achieved a triple-double with 24 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists.

Park Ji-soo achieved his 8th triple-double in his career, tying with national team coach Jeong Seon-min’s league record of most triple-doubles (8).

Samsung Life Insurance Bae Hye-yoon also recorded her first career triple-double with 14 points,

11 rebounds, and 10 assists on this day, but the team loss was disappointing.

This is the first time there have been two triple-doubles in one game in women’s professional basketball.

However, on July 18, 2000, in the 2000 Summer League,

two games were held per day, and there were two triple-doubles in one day.

At that time, Shinsegae Jeong Seon-min (27 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists) and Hyundai Jeon Joo-won (13 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) achieved triple-doubles in different games.

Samsung Life Insurance, which maintained 3rd place with 10 wins and 12 losses,

had coach Ha Sang-yoon take over as acting coach due to coach Lim Geun-bae being diagnosed with a novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19).
