follow us on
Experienced American Tina Thompson (188-F-75, agency: Merit Sports) had a great game in the last round for league's leader Woori Hansae and that's her to receive a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 14. The 37-year old forward had a double-double of 25 points and ten rebounds, while her team edged out KB Stars (#3, 7-8) 68-65. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Woori Hansae to consolidate first place in the South Korean WKBL. Woori Hansae have a solid 12-3 record. In the team's last game Thompson had a remarkable 63.6% from 2-point range. She turned to be Woori Hansae's top player in her first season with the team. Tina Thompson averages this season 18.8ppg and 10.4rpg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 32-year old international Jung-Ja Sin (185-C/F-80) of Winnus. Sin impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 17 points and 17 rebounds. Bad luck as Winnus lost that game 55-61 to slightly higher-ranked Bichumi (#4, 7-8). Winnus managed to keep the same 5th spot in the standings. Her team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-10 record. Sin is one of the most experienced players at Winnus and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 14.9ppg (#4). Her other stats are also decent: 10.9rpg and 5.1apg.
The third best performed player last round was American Amber Harris (195-C/F-88) of Bichumi (#4). Harris showcased her all-around game by recording 22 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the last round. She was a key player of Bichumi, leading her team to a 61-55 win against slightly lower-ranked Winnus (#5, 5-10). The chances of Bichumi ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 8 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Harris could help Bichumi to bring them higher in the standings. Harris has a very solid season. In 5 games in South Korea she scored 22.0ppg.

The South Korean women's professional basketball league is considering permanently banning and erasing the statistics of a star American player accused of forging birth documents in a bid to qualify to compete in the domestic competition. League spokesman Kim Ilku on Thursday said the KEB Hana Bank team's records for its run to the 2015-16 finals also could be removed if prosecutors prove in court that Chelsey Lee (193-C-89, college: Rutgers) used forged birth certificates to claim a South Korean family heritage. WKBL teams can each have two foreign players who face limitations in playing minutes in each game. But foreign-born players with a parent or a grandparent who was a South Korean national don't count against the quota or face playing-time restrictions. Kim said the league was awaiting a court ruling before proceeding further with the matter. "The league will start discussions on how to potentially penalize Lee and the team and also strengthen the verification process when teams sign foreign players, but no decision will be made before a verdict is reached in court," Kim said. Lee, a Miami-born center, won the league's rookie of the year honors for the 2015-16 season after averaging 15.2 points and 10.4 rebounds per game for KEB Hana Bank, which entered the playoffs with the second-best regular-season record and lost to Woori Bank in three games in a best-of-five championship series. Lee later signed to play for the Washington Mystics in the WNBA, although she currently is not on the roster and hasn't returned to South Korea. Prosecutors told local reporters Wednesday that they had concluded the birth documents Lee presented to KEB Hana Bank before joining the team were fake. Prosecutors said the man listed in the documents as Lee's father didn't exist and that the daughter of a dead South Korean woman listed in the papers as Lee's grandmother confirmed that she didn't have other children. The Ministry of Justice asked prosecutors to investigate Lee's documents after the Korean Olympic Committee in April pushed for Lee's naturalization so that she could represent South Korea in international events.
