Japan, which won a silver medal at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics,
dispatched 7 out of 12 national team members to this tournament.
The organization was solid as we had been working together for a long time,
the process of executing the attack clicked together like a cogwheel.
In addition, we threw 32 3-point shots and hit 14 of them, recording a success rate of 44%,
so we were completely defeated without being able to use our strength once.
Korea (14) made twice as many mistakes as Japan (7).
Coach Jeong Seon-min said in an interview after the game,
“I feel embarrassed to give an overall review of the game because I felt like we lost without even doing anything.
It was a complete defeat, including physical strength.”
On the 5th, South Korea will face North Korea in a 3rd-4th place match for the bronze medal.
South Korea met North Korea once in the group stage of this tournament and won 81-62.
However, it was impressive that Park Jin-ah, North Korea’s 205cm tall center,
played a big role, scoring 29 points and 17 rebounds.
Coach Jeong said, “North Korea is a team that plays basketball with Park Jin-ah’s power,” and added,
“In the end, how to stop that player is important.
Instead of leaving it to Park Ji-soo alone, the quick offense and defense transition from defense to offense,
including interceptions derived from assisting defense as a whole, is important.”
“This is important,” he said.
