Six teams including BNK, Chanson Cosmetics, which ranked 7th in Japan’s W-League last season,
Taiwan Team A made up of Taiwanese national team players,

defeated Team B in Taiwan 77-65 in the second game, and won two consecutive victories.
After losing 73-98 to Chanson Cosmetics, the winner of the tournament, in the 3rd game,
BNK beat the Philippine national team 65-59 in the 4th game,
won a complete victory over the Taiwanese team A 93-76 in the 5th game,
which was the ‘2nd place match’.
With a record of 4 wins and 1 loss, BNK came in second after Chanson Cosmetics (5 wins), and the silver medal-winning team smiled widely.
After successively defeating other national teams in international competitions,
BNK revealed their prospects for victory next season.
Coach of BNK
Park Jeong-eun, coach of BNK, took the baton in the 2021-2022 season and put the team in the postseason for the first time in the club, and last season they performed better with a runner-up.
The growth of the leading scorer and the strengthening of the bench members, the two pieces of the puzzle to win, achieved some results through the Jones Cup.
Lee So-hee, who was selected as one of the best 5 last season,
showed off her high-sensitivity shooting skills with an average of 18.2 points in 5 games in this competition, was selected as one of the best 5 of the competition and was recognized for her skills on the international stage.
After scoring 20 points in the first game, Lee So-hee was sluggish in the second and third games,
but rebounded again in the fourth game by posting 19 points, including 3 points and 5 shots.
In the 5th game with the medal color, he scored 31 points alone against the Taiwanese national team.
In an interview after the tournament, Park Jeong-eun, coach of BNK, said, “Lee So-hee is our team’s scorer, and when she thinks a lot and feels down, the team’s performance also declines.”It would have been an opportunity to grow a little bit more.”
Head coach Park Jeong-eun rotated the rotation by frequently using bench members while playing games for five consecutive days, and also discovered a sixth man who showed remarkable growth.
Coach Park Jeong-eun’s ‘prominent player’ was Kim Ji-eun.
Kim Ji-eun, who predicted an active performance by recording 17 points including 3 points and 5 shots in the first game, participated in all 5 games of this tournament and only scored 15 points with 3 points.
Director Park Jeong-eun said to Kim Ji-eun, “He fulfilled his role well.
The road ahead must have been dark, but now that he can see his own path, he thinks he might have found his homework.”
Moon Ji-young also played her part in the third match against Chanson Cosmetics’ Nigerian center Lee Jo-ye Woo-che (188 cm).
Director Park praised, “I put Ji-young Moon on Woo-che, and she performed her duties well.” “She felt that Ji-young Moon was hungry during her playing time on her court.
“It was a tournament to learn the timing to widen the range of available players.
It was an opportunity to practice a little more on when to add players and how to organize them,” said coach Park himself, looking back at it as an opportunity to grow one step further as a leader.
BNK, which achieved results at the Jones Cup, now turns to the Park Shin-Ja Cup, which will be held at the Cheongju Gymnasium in Chungcheongbuk-do from the 26th.
BNK was in Group B with Cheongju KB, Bucheon Hana 1Q, Japan’s Eneos Sunflowers and the Philippine national team.
Park Shin-Ja Cup
In the Park Shin-Ja Cup, coach Park Jeong-eun also checks the actual performance of non-jujeon players through rotation.
Coach Park said, “I have an idea to run the rotation with a wider range than the regular season,” and “I want to make it a tournament where players can gain confidence.”
