’33 points, 20 R’ Jinan dominated under the goal, MVP double congratulations for the first appearance in the All-Star game!
Jin An (27, Busan BNK Some) enjoyed the joy of winning the MVP award in the first all-star game since his professional debut. At the “Shinhan Bank SOL 2022-2023 Women’s Professional Basketball All-Star Festival” held at Dowon Gymnasium in Incheon on the 8th, she won 55 out of 68 votes from reporters and won the All-Star MVP.
Jin An played 31 minutes and 11 seconds that day, recording 33 points and 20 rebounds. She worked with Yoo-Rim Kang (Yongin Samsung Life Insurance, 15 points), Ji-Hyun Shin (Bucheon Hana OneQ, 12 points), and Ji-Hyeon Park (Asan Woori Bank, 12 points), contributing to Pink Star defeating Blue Star 98-92.
Jinan, who had been looking forward to the All-Star Game, which had not been held for the past two years due to the aftermath of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), was sincere in all events on this day. She was gorgeous from the moment she appeared. She performed a dazzling dance to the song of the popular girl group ‘Espa’ and she received a big round of applause. She even won the best performance award for her constant antics during competitions that drew attention to her. Jin An won a total of 5 million won in prize money, including MVP (3 million won) and Best Performance Award (2 million won).
She scored 10 points from the 1st quarter, and Jinan, who dominated her goal, took a breather with 4 points in the 2nd quarter. However, she showed off her terrifying scoring ability from the 3rd quarter and aimed for MVP. She picked up the pace, posting 6 points in the Blue Star uniform.
A variable occurred during the operation of the scoring cannon. Through the newly introduced ‘Transfer Challenge’ from this All-Star game, they changed from Blue Star to Pink Star uniforms. The transfer challenge is a way to trade one player during the game, and Blue Star captain Lee So-hee (BNK) points out Pink star Kang Iseul (Cheongju KB Stars). In return, Jinan moved to Pink Star. 토토
As soon as he changed his uniform, Jinan scored 4 points, and in the 4th quarter, he actively participated in rebounding, posting 9 points and 9 rebounds. Thanks to Jinan’s dominance under the goal, Pink Star was able to shake off Blue Star’s last-minute pursuit. Jinan, who was even awarded the MVP for his first appearance in the All-Star Game, said, “I was honestly surprised. I think he got the MVP because his older sisters kept pushing him,” he said with a broad smile.
Kang I-seul missed the MVP award because Blue Star, who moved to the transfer challenge, lost despite posting 42 points, including 12 3-pointers, the most in a single All-Star game. However, he didn’t care at all and showed the dignity of congratulating his junior Jinan on winning the MVP award. Iseul Kang said, “I told Jinan, ‘If the team changes and you get the MVP, buy some food. I will wait,” he said. “Isn’t Lee So-hee also brought because I did well? It felt good.” He smiled. Iseul Kang also received a prize of 3 million won for scoring (2 million won) and winning the 3-point shooting contest (1 million won).
