He also recorded a 3-point success rate of 40%, making him a top shooter.

Excluding Kyle Adnam, who played only one game, and big man Sam Froling, who has an extremely low number of 3-point attempts, his 3-point success rate is the highest on the team.

The game in which he scored the most goals was against the Adelaide Thirty-Sixers (89-96 Illawarra loss) held on the 20th of last month, where Lee Hyeon-joong played only 26 minutes and scored 24 points.

Hyunjoong Lee attempted to advance to the National Basketball Association (NBA) by challenging the 2022 draft when he was a third year student at Davidson University in the United States, but was not selected in the rookie draft.

When his entry into the NBA through the draft failed, he planned to sign with a G-League (NBA’s lower league) team and hope for a ‘call-up’ or play in the summer league to make a mark on NBA teams.

If the Illawarra win against third-place Tasmania, they will advance to the semifinals against the second-place Perth Wildcats.

In case of a loss, the team must play one more game against the winner of the 5th and 6th place teams.If they win here, they will advance to the semifinals against number one Melbourne, and if they lose, they will be eliminated. 토토사이트 순위
