KB Stars were back at home on Saturday taking on Shinhan Bank. Looking to stay undefeated KB had their work cut out for them. The first half went back and forth as Shinhan took a three point lead into the half. The second half was just as exciting as the first as Shinhan held onto their three point lead heading in the fourth.
