Asian Games - South Korea shoot down northern rival

Moon Kyung-eun is again unstoppable. In “ The war of south and north”, Moon scored 28, including 6-10 from the three-point land, as South Korea defeated their northern counterpart DPR Korea, 101-85, today in the second round of 2002 Pusan Asian Game.

Moon had a total of 80 points(26.7 PPG) in the last three games while shooting 18-27(66.7% FG) from the three-point range. Up until now, South Korea is still the best team in Pusan that can compete with China. The only problem for them is, they probably take it too easy in the first half. It seems they come out to play 100% only after halftime.
