LiAngelo Ball found himself playing defense during his first press conference in Lithuania.

LiAngelo, his brother LaMelo and their outspoken father and Big Baller Brand CEO LaVar Ball faced the media overseas for the first time since the brothers joined Lithuanian side Vytautas Prienai.

One female reporter decided to shoot her shot during the event. 

Evelina Pavliukovic of LNK's KK2 admitted to liking LiAngelo, invited him out on a date and then asked if he has a girlfriend. 

"I just came here to play," the seemingly surprised 19-year-old said before chuckling. 

When further pressed, he responded with, "No comment." 

Give Pavliukovic credit for realizing you miss all of the shots you never take. 

Update: Later in the day, LiAngelo further explained his comments via Twitter:
