At the post-game press conference, Sonia Kim said, “I was in really bad shape. I felt like I was running in slow motion throughout the game. I didn’t have a good sense of field goal. Even so, coach (Gunadan) encouraged me to shoot. Even during operation time, I have to grab the rebound first. Park Ji-soo and Yeom Yoon-ah of KB Stars left due to injury. I wanted to win even more. KB Stars must have been desperate. I really wanted to win too. I need to pay more attention to the early part of the game and the details. If the shot doesn’t go in, I have to make up for it with rebounds. I missed about 3 layups during the game. At that time, I could see that the opponent was having a hard time. I decided to do my best until the end. (Han) Chae-jin won the game thanks to her steal. This is a game that will teach us a lesson. “he said.
“The manager doesn’t tell me to pass the ball only to me during operation time. At the end of the game, if I get a chance, I have a sense of responsibility to throw a shot. In fact, I tried to pass it to (Kim) Ah-reum at the end. I switched to drive-in for fear of making a mistake. (Laughter). Shinhan Bank is maintaining a good atmosphere.”
What did Sonia Kim think when she scored the last comeback? Sonia Kim said, “When defending, I felt that the opponents were not tall enough. It was a situation where we were playing without a center. I eagerly participated in all rebounds. If I were the opposing manager, I would have been very angry. It was a game that I could win enough. But, “Basketball never ends,” he said.
Lastly, “I always have confidence in rebounding. If the attack doesn’t work out, I focus more on rebounding. Rebounding is more important than technique, but wanting to catch a rebound is more important. Areum is not even 2 meters tall. I participate in all rebounds. I have to learn that part too,” he concluded the press conference.
