    Choi Joon-Young of Yonsei is out of the national team due to an injury. Seoul SK's Byun Ki-Hoon, who played in the Jones Cup before being cut will replace Choi.

    Choi has been disappointing for Korea since last year and his non-inclusion is not a huge loss. Byun, is much more ready for FIBA tournaments as he showed good three point shooting during the Jones Cup and is better defender.

    Game 1 Final: Korea 65 - 59 Tunisia

    Korea was off to a fast start in the first half with Hur Jae using most of the flex offense in getting Cho Sung-Min those catch and shoot motion. Game standout is Lee Seung-Hyun, who proved to be very competitive against players who were 208cm and 204cm in his coverage. Lee used mobility, heft and tenacity to finish with 14pts and 14rebs.

    Korea survived the 3rd and 4th quarter rally due to team play with their sustained offense operating on a 1-4 high flex system.

    Offense looks pretty sharp, at least from highlights. Korean style is always about lots of perimeter movement, off-ball screens in baseline or weak side, 3 pointers and fast breaks, something a lot of teams can learn from.

    However without a rim protector down low Korea will always be a vulnerable team. Will be interesting to see how they perform in FIBA Asia Challenges, on paper they are likely top 3.

    There's some talk that a star player in Kyung Hee University named Kim Cheol-uk and a possible candidate for the South Korean NT is actually a Chinese player former known as Wu Dilong. Wu Dilong was from Heilongjiang, China and went to South Korea in 2009. He is projected a top 4 pick in the KBL draft.

    BTW, there's also a star player in the WKBL named Jin An who was actually a Taiwanese formerly known as Hsu Hsiao-tung. She was the 2nd pick in the 2015 WKBL draft.

    It is true about Kim Cheol-Uk. He got his citizenship at age 17 and could have gone as 1st pick overall last year had he not pull out due to an MCL injury. Kim's name is floating around as a naturalized player for the NT. At 204cm and a PF, he can immediately help the NT.

    Kim Sun-Hyung's thoughts on FIBA Asia: http://www.fiba.com/news/kim-sunhyun...r-2017-success

    He's right Korea needs a stronger front-line but will always be challenged in the paint. Traditionally, Koreans used to trap the inside and send out a second block to nullify an outlet pass. That worked so well during the time of Seo Jang-Hoon and Lee Chang-Soo. In Ha Seung-Jin's time, Ha despite 7'3 was a poor defender inside and as he grew older, became less and less productive on offense and defense.

    The tandem of Kim Jong-Kyu and Lee Jong-Hyun shows promise but can be overpowered by Hamed Haddadi or China's multiple bigmen. Currently, Jong-Kyu is Korea's starting center and Lee Jong-Hyun to be back him up. Jong-Hyun has a much better defensive ability as Korea with Jong-Kyu almost has zero interior defense like what Kim Joo-Sung used to provide.

    Korea's NT front-court has the following depth chart:

    Kim Jong-Kyu, Lee Jong-Hyun, Jang Jae-Seok, Oh Se-Keun
    Lee Seung-Hyun, Kim Junil, Kang Sangjae, Choi Bu-Kyung, Jeong Hyo-Geun.

    Best defensive combination: Jong-Hyun + Se-Keun
    Best offensive combination: Jong-Kyu + Seung-Hyun

    Samsung's Ricardo Ratliff expressed his earnest interest in attaining a Korean citizenship and perhaps play for the national team in the future. At age 28 and at 200cm, Ratliff can help bolster the power forward position. He has gained reputation in Korea as a very professional and reliable player, with his championship in Ulsan and now helping Samsung back into contender status.

    Ratliff's prospect as a naturalized player is not set in stone but it adds to the potential list of naturalized player for Korea. Kim Cheol-Uk, who is originally from China is 204cm and is a project for KGC. Ratliff is in his prime and can instantly help the national team.

    Head coach of the NT, Hur Jae have yet to comment on Ratliff's naturalization. Samsung or a KBA stakeholder must sponsor Ratliff to initiate the due process for naturalization.

    Legally, KBA cannot pay him to make him play for the national team as under the Korean Sports Commission's charter, that prohibits players in accepting money from organizations outside the prescribed compensation. What Ratliff can accept is the declared and agreed upon compensation by him and the KBA, that is mandated by the KSC and that too has limits on how much can he be compensated in terms of cash.

    Plus, KBA, as an association cannot afford the salary and bonuses Ratliff gets from Samsung.
