Lee Hok sprints back-and-forth, elbow-to-elbow at the Collegiate Charter School Saturday morning. Sweat is dripping down the forehead of the 20-year-old Cambodian basketball player from Chelmsford.
Back-and-forth he goes until he reaches 20 made jumpers. Some shots rim out; others splash throw the hoop. No matter what, though, Hok’s right-handed jumper stays the same.
The meticulous practice means a lot for Hok: he’s about to represent the United States, the Greater Lowell community and his country of origin later this month at the 2019 South East Asian Games for the USA-Cambodian Basketball Association.
