# Is it the champion Woori Bank or KB with Park Ji-soo’s return? Women's basketball begins on November 5 # The 2023-2024 season begins with the official opening match between Woori Bank and BNK. The number one favorite for the championship according to players is KB. Samsung Life Insurance and BNK are also taking on the challenge. The 2023-2024 women's professional basketball season will begin a journey of approximately five months starting with the opening game between Asan Woori Bank and Busan BNK on the 5th of next month. Managers, coaches and representative players from six women's basketball teams expressed their determination for the opening in front of 50 fans at the 'Woori Bank Woori WON 2023-2024 Women's Professional Basketball Media Day' held at Hotel Riviera in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the 30th. All six teams, including Woori Bank, which won the regular league and championship game last season, are aiming for the championship. **[카지노사이트위키](https://www.casinositewiki.com)** All head coaches, including coach Wi Sang-woo, the ‘longest-serving head coach in women’s basketball’ who has led Woori Bank since 2012, and Yongin Samsung Life Insurance coach Lim Geun-bae, who ranked second in history during his tenure (2015-), continued to hold the baton this season as they did last season. In particular, if Coach Wi adds 21 more wins, he will become the first coach in women's professional basketball history to achieve 300 wins. If Woori Bank also wins 14 more games, it will become the first team to achieve 500 wins. While Woori Bank, which took second place in the Park Shin-ja Cup, which was held as an international competition for the first time last August and September, is expected to continue its strong performance, Cheongju KB, with Park Ji-soo's return, is also mentioned as a strong candidate for the championship. Park Ji-soo and KB, the mainstays of Korean women's basketball who missed the early and mid-2022-2023 season due to being diagnosed with panic disorder and concentrating on treatment, are aiming to reclaim the 'throne' taken by Woori Bank. In fact, KB appeared as the ‘#1 candidate for the championship’ as evaluated by WKBL players. In a WKBL survey asking 103 players from all 6 teams about the winning team, it took first place with 48% of the votes. He received 49 votes. [Woori Bank](https://casinositewiki.notion.site/casinositewiki/Decisive-Blow-Ulsan-Kim-Min-hyuk-4626142f65fe48f18365f6aae7dbe5e5) was in second place with 29.4% of the votes (31 people), followed by Samsung Life Insurance (11.8%, 12 people) in third place. BNK, which advanced to the championship game last season under the leadership of coach Park Jeong-eun, has maintained its core strength including Lee So-hee, Jin-an, and Kim Han-byeol, and is challenging this season's structure, which is evaluated as a 'two-strong system'. Samsung Life Insurance also shakes off the disappointment of last season when Kiana Smith, a former member of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA), left the team due to an unexpected injury while establishing herself as an ace, and is looking to a higher level. Among the transfer students, veteran Kim Jong-un stands out. Kim Jong-un, who left Woori Bank after winning the 2022-2023 season, returned to his ‘parent’ Bucheon Hana One Q last April as a free agent. Kim Jong-un, who was selected as the first overall pick in the 2006 rookie draft to Hana One Q's predecessor, Shinsegae, had played for only one team until 2017. Kim Jong-un's addition is welcome for his former team, [Hana One Q](https://www.pinterest.co.kr/pin/872009546586451150), which struggled to finish in last place last season. Kim Jong-un is also challenging the record for the most points in his career. He is 339 points shy of the record of career leading scorer Jeong Seon-min (8,140 points), who has 7,801 points. Yoo Seung-hee, who left Incheon Shinhan Bank, is also raising expectations by joining Woori Bank, which is considered the strongest, after finishing last season. [Yoo Seung-hee](https://blog.libero.it/wp/casinositewiki/2024/01/07/womens-volleyball-team-cheong-kwan-jang-completely-defeats-hyundai-engineering-construction/) was selected as the most anticipated transfer, recording 30.6% of the votes in a survey conducted among players, fans, and media personnel from six clubs. Starting from the new season, the playoffs (PO) will be changed to 3 wins out of 5. Previously, it was 2 wins out of 3.
