    Default South Korea Women's National Team

    After last year's World Championship experience, Park Ji-Su will suit up for South Korea in FIBA Asia, leading a new generation of players for a chance to qualify for next year's Rio Olympics.

    If Japan's FIBA ban doesn't get lifted in time, South Korea only has China as their only competition.

    Sonia Ursu Kim of Woorie Hansae will not attend the national team player pool for FIBA Asia 2015 as she chose to try and make the Romanian women national team for Eurobasket 2015. KBA tried to convince her but she chose Romania.

    South Korea Women's national team for FIBA Asia 2015.

    Lee Kyeung-Een (KDB)
    Park Hye-Jin (Woori)
    Hong Arah (KB Stars)
    Kim Kyu-Hee (Shinhan)
    Im Young-Hee (Woori)
    Kim Jong-Un (Hana Bank)
    Kim Dabi (Shinhan)
    Kang Ah-Jeong (KB Stars)
    Yang Ji-Hee (Hana Bank)
    Kwak Joo-Young (Shinhan)
    Bae Hye-Yoon (Samsung)
    Park Ji-Su (Bundang)

    Very young team that has an average of 25.8 years old. It's a new era for the national team as many of the veterans have made way for young talents like Park Ji-Su. Kim Danbi and Park Hye-Jin are named co-captains. Shin Ji-Hyun is listed as a substitute player in case someone gets injured.

    According to reports, Park Ji-Su has a hip injury but nothing serious but will miss the friendlies against the Opals. Although there are reports that Ji-Su will travel with the national team in Australia for recovery.

    Good read about Korea's hopes for the Rio Olympics. They compensate with upcoming talent against lack of experience. http://english.donga.com/srv/service...=2015082635308

    Hana Bank's foreign player, Chelsea Lee has been confirmed with a Korean ancestry through her paternal grandmother. Lee has expressed interest in becoming a naturalized citizen and playing for the national team next year in the FIBA OQT.

    A good read on why the WKBL level is stailing under the nation's impression since the 2010's.
    http://www.ohmynews.com/NWS_Web/View...CD=A0002174533

    IMO, WKBL has stailed as the superstars of last decade are ageing with their last legs standing. Coaches love to rely heavily on foreign players and the veterans, often coming up with short rotations. Promising players either takes years to develop as their chances are very slim while some just quit and find regular jobs.

    KBA is still interested in reinforcing the women's national team with Chelsey Lee, but if they take the orthodox legal route, time won't permit Lee's inclusion. KBA is seeking a special naturalization case from the legal department but according to reports, is rather unlikely to pass screening albeit approval.

    With the reorganization of the Korean Basketball Association into the Republic of Korea Basketball Association, this places the women's NT in terms of support such as logistics and grants from the Olympic committee. Last year's organizing committee did short changed the women in terms of lacking of funding that was detrimental to the training from lodging and medical staff.

    Although the article cited the case of Chelsey Lee follows the case of the Sandrin brothers and Stevenson brothers, they all went to the due process of attaining Korean citizenship before suiting up for the national team.

    Using the special naturalization case is unprecedented.

    Shinhan's center Ha Eunju is out for the regular season with the team managers shutting her down due chronic knee pain and a troublesome shin pain. Eunju will also be likely out for OQT player pool that will be unveiled next month.

    Lee Mi-Sun has retired professionally and she will be one of the greatest NT players. Played in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and 2008 Olympics. Helped the women's team in 2014 Asian Games gold.
