First placed Woori Bank clinched the regular season title on Friday in the Korean League with ten games still left in the season. With a 24-1 record, it comes as no surprise that Woori won the Korean League regular season and are the favorites to win the WKBL Finals again this year. Woori Bank has won the last five championships in the league but this season is special as they set the record for the fastest pace to clinch a playoff berth. In her first season overseas, Jonquel Jones has dominated the league this season with averages of 16 points per game to go along with 12 rebounds and 3 blocks! Jones is a shoe-in to win the league’s MVP this season. Currie, who earlier in the season became the all-time leading foreign scorer after four seasons in the Korean league celebrates her first regular season championship.
