With this result, Korea temporarily topped the Group A standings. In the second place, there were Taiwan who defeated Kazakhstan with a score of 72-42. The Korean coach, Lee Moon-kyu, made this match against Indonesia a training ground and finalized the team’s game.
Not without reason, the status of South Korean women’s basketball defending champion at the 2014 Asian Games wants to be maintained by Korea in this edition. However, because the players from the two new countries were together for 14 days, Lee felt the training time still had to be added.
“South Korea is the defending champion, but still want to be together (with North Korean players) because they are still one family. So, they still want to be together, at this Asian Games they want to join,” Lee told reporters in the mixed zone Hall of A GBK.
