“I think I can become a good player.”토토사이트
If you look at the recent matches of Cheongju KB Stars, you can see more young and unfamiliar faces than familiar ones. Supporter Park Ji-soo joined the team after a long hiatus, but withdrew again due to a finger injury, while veteran Yum Yoon-ah suffered an ankle injury, and Kim Min-jung, the second-ranked player in the team who filled the void left by Park Ji-soo, left the lineup. KB Stars, which had a limited number of rotations, had no choice but to actively employ young players.
In particular, Lee Yoon-mi’s playing time has increased significantly. Yoonmi Lee is a player wearing a KB Stars uniform in the 6th place in the 1st round in the 2019 rookie selection competition. With KB Stars’ mighty power, they had no choice but to gain experience in the Futures League, Triple Jam, and Park Shin-Ja Cup.
An opportunity came to Lee Yoon-mi. During KB Stars’ 22 games this season, there was no game where they played more than 10 minutes, but since the match against Asan Woori Bank on the 5th, the playing time increased to more than 10 minutes. Lee Yoon-mi, who received the opportunity, slowly raised her sense of the game.
He played more than 10 minutes in 4 consecutive games, and then burst out properly in a head-to-head match against Bucheon Hana 1Q on the 15th. He recorded 20 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists in 26 minutes and 17 seconds of play. The 20 points is his personal most, and the previous record was 6 points, which he posted on January 28, 2023. Compared to this season’s average of 8 minutes and 18 seconds, 2.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.6 assists, it was a ‘surprising performance’.
KB Stars made 11 3-pointers, 4 of which were Lee Yun-mi’s 3-pointers. In addition, KB Stars’ field goal success rate was only 34%, but Lee Yoon-mi was the only one who exceeded 50%. He tried 13 Yatoo attempts and succeeded in 7 of them. Not only scoring, but moving without the ball created opportunities for Kang Iseul and his teammates. However, the team’s low field goal success rate and Hana 1Q’s high field field goal success rate contrasted, and Lee Yun-mi’s performance faded in the 69-82 defeat.
Still, director Kim Wan-soo looked at the fleeting moment positively. After the match, “(Lee) Yoon-mi did her part. He threw whenever he had a chance to shoot, and his movement without the ball was good. As a player, it is more important to be consistent than to be good at a flash, so I think I can become a good player if I continue without being satisfied with the present.”
Being consistent is easier said than done. However, if she takes this as an opportunity and demonstrates her performance for the remaining four games, Lee’s position will be more solid next season.
