Game 2 of the Korean League Finals were back in Asan, home of Woori Bank. A sold out crowd was in attendance for Saturday’s game as Woori looked to take care of home court again against Samsung. Samsung came out strong to take the lead early in the first and hanging on to win the quarter by six points. Woori had trouble scoring as Samsung found a way to slow down Jonquel Jones on offense with their physical defensive play. The second quarter was all Woori as they held Samsung to just eight points and took an eight point lead into halftime. In the second half, Woori began to find their rhythm but Samsung hung around for as long as they could. In the end, Woori’s balanced attack secured their second win of the series. They are one game away from winning their fifth consecutive WKBL championship. Teams will change venues for game three on Monday night.
