Go A-ra (34, 179cm) experienced the first regular league championship of her career at Woori Bank.
Go A-ra, who made her professional debut in 2007, had nothing to do with winning. He played for Kumho Life Insurance, Woori Bank, Samsung Life Insurance, and Hana 1Q, but mostly hovered in the lower ranks. From his debut to last season, the win rate of Go Ara’s matches was 33.8% (153 wins, 300 losses).
Ara Go, who returned to Woori Bank ahead of this season, tasted the first regular league championship in her career. Woori Bank showed off its overwhelming power from the beginning, and on the 13th, it defeated Busan BNK Some and confirmed 1st place in the regular league.
Go Ara, whom we met after the match against Bucheon Hanawon Q on the 18th, said, “At first, I didn’t feel it. As time passed, I felt proud that I was on a strong team, a winning team. I was able to play more fun because I won the championship,” he said of his feelings about winning the regular league. 메이저놀이터
This season, Go Ara played an average of 19 minutes and 10 seconds in 24 regular league games, recording 5.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Although he was in poor condition at the beginning of the season due to knee pain during the offseason, he is giving strength to the team as a sixth man towards the end.
“When I first joined the team, I underwent knee rehabilitation for a long time. He seems to have only rehabilitated almost before the start of the season. Fortunately, coach (Sungwoo Wi) and coaches are very considerate, so my body is improving little by little. Because the team wants something from me, I am trying to do it as well as possible. It seems that there is no big difficulty in performing the role because I have a lot of experience.” Go Ara’s words.
Woori Bank, which has confirmed its championship in the regular season, is gradually preparing for the playoffs. Since the average age of key players such as Kim Jong-un, Kim Dan-bi, and Park Hye-jin is in their mid-30s, the role of bench members such as Go A-ra is more important in short-term matches.
Go Ara said, “There are many players with good scoring skills on our team. When I go into a game, I think I will mainly participate in defense, rebounding, dirty work, and fast break. I will focus on this in the playoffs and try to create good synergy with my colleagues.”
