Women’s national team changes roster from Lee Da-yeon to Kang Yoo-rim ahead of strengthening training…reason is injury

The women’s roster has changed. Lee Da-yeon (Woori Bank) is out and Kang Yoo-rim (Samsung Life Insurance) is in.

The Korea Women’s National Basketball Team, which will compete in the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2026 Qualifiers, will convene at the Incheon Dowon Gymnasium on Tuesday for a five-week training camp.

The roster of the Women’s National Team has changed prior to the training camp. First, Lee Da-yeon, who made her debut for the women’s national team, is out with an injury. Lee was a youngster who showed promise last season, averaging 6.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 17.50 minutes per game in 29 regular-season 카지노사이트 games.

However, her first national team honors will have to wait. Park Soo-ho, the head coach of the women’s national team, said in a phone call, “I was in the process of picking her up and checking her physical condition. I officially submitted an injury certificate to the federation and withdrew her from the team.”

Lee will be replaced by Kang Yoo-rim. Kang played in all 30 games last season, averaging 31 minutes and 53 seconds per game and recording 8.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. Although she took a slight step back from the 2022-2023 season, she is a shooter who can provide a spark.

“We have a shooter in Kang Yiul (KB Stars), but I thought it would be nice to have another one,” Park said. She was a good fit for our guard rotation. She has shown her shooting ability. I hope she can be a big help for us.”
