Whenever her team’s mood sank, Lee Shi-ho’s hands never cooled, and she would shoot a three-pointer to revive it.
On the 24th, the U10, U12, and U15 divisions of the 2023 Pyeongtaek-Osan Youth Club League (i-League) were held at the Lee Chung Culture Indoor Gymnasium in Pyeongtaek-si, Gyeonggi-do.
The last game of the tournament was the 카지노사이트 U15 division. As the junior high school players fought for victory, one player showed off his fiery shooting skills. It was Lee Shi-ho (Mangpo Middle School 1) of the Suwon KT Youth Club Basketball Team.
Even with only six players on the team, he was able to give the team a boost with his shooting. “I’m not a natural shooter,” he said. I usually pass a lot, but I upgraded my shooting and I think it worked well today. I was disappointed with the result, but I will work harder to win next time,” he said.
Once he got the ball at the three-point line, he took a bold shot attempt and the basket responded every time. His shooting touch came from practice. “I’ve been practicing shooting, layups and dribbling repeatedly. I always like to be aggressive, but my shooting was a little bit lucky (laughs).”
As mentioned earlier, he said he prefers to play aggressively. This was influenced by the NBA, and he said his role model is former NBA player Allen Iverson. “I think it’s great that he played in the NBA at a little over 6-foot-5. I think it’s even more remarkable now that I’m in the mid-6-foot range and I’m not a big guy.”
Although Lee stood out with his shooting, he also wants to perfect his point guard role: “I want to lead, coordinate the game, and show the plays I want to make.”
Meanwhile, the I-League is organized by the Korea Sports Council, hosted by the Korea Basketball Association and local basketball associations, and sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Sports Promotion Agency.
