Another member of Kentucky’s Final Four team will be returning to school next year. Marcus Lee has announced he will return for his sophomore season. Lee said, “I’ve really enjoyed my college experience and I’m looking forward to continuing to develop as an all-around player. Playing in the Final Four was such an amazing feeling, but I want to come back and help win that final game this year.”
In 24 appearances for the Wildcats, Lee averaged 2.5 PPG, 1.5 RPG, and 0.6 BPG in 6.5 minutes per contest. His slash line was .619/.000/.438. He had a much better NCAA tournament and even made the Midwest Regional All-Tournament team. His best tournament performance came against Michigan where he scored 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds.
According to draft experts, Lee would have likely been a second round pick in this year’s NBA draft.
