‘Basketball is now a hobby that I enjoy,’ said Asep Lee.
The team lost 17-34 to Batu in the first game of Group C at the 2023 Women’s Festivals with WKBL at the 온라인카지노 Samsung Life Practice Gym, Bojeong-dong STC in Yongin on Sunday (Aug. 8).
Asep Lee (31, 168 cm, forward) stood out. She had just five points and two rebounds, but her solid individual game and skill set made her an assists ace. There was a reason. She had been an elite athlete all the way back to high school.
After the game, Lee said, “We lost the first game. We have a big team. I think this is a one-shot team. Our breathing was not good. I think we need to practice a lot. Today I didn’t play as well as I usually do. They trusted me, and I’m very upset.”
When asked about her basketball background, Lee said that she has played elite basketball as mentioned above.
“I played basketball until my senior year in high school. I was a high school classmate of Shim Sung-young and Supia, who now play for the Cheongju KB Stars. I actually got back into basketball because a fan introduced me to Acep. I remember it was 2017. I was living in Seoul and it was somewhat free, so I started playing basketball and realized how much fun it was. I’ve been playing for six years now. Now I don’t have the pressure I had when I was an elite player. I’m just enjoying myself and having a lot of fun. I’m just disappointed that I didn’t play too much today.”
Lee now has to prepare for Division 3. Next week, the team will face off at Incheon’s Dowon Gymnasium to try and redeem themselves.
“I want to win somehow, I have to win. But I can’t do it alone. I will work well with my teammates to win the match.” She concluded the interview by saying, “I’m not going to do it alone.
Lee is a successful elite transition model who is now working as an office worker at the Gwanak District Sports Office, and is experiencing a new kind of basketball through club basketball.
She is an inspiration for elite juniors.
