Report: Harrison Twins bypass NBA Draft; Return to Kentucky Wildcats

The Kentucky Wildcats received an absurd amount of hype going into this past season, and that will probably be the case again in 2014. With Willie Cauley-Stein and Marcus Lee already having announced they’re returning for another year in Lexington, the 2014-15 Wildcats already look like a championship-contender on paper. They just got even better with news that Andrew and Aron...

Marcus Lee will return to the Kentucky Wildcats next year

Kentucky Freshman forward Marcus Lee will return to Lexington for the 2014-15 season, it was announced Friday. So not everyone at UK is going pro.

Back to Marcus Lee, a self-professed nerd who...

Kentucky Announces That Marcus Lee Will Return To School

The freshman forward only averaged 2.4 points and 1.4 rebounds per game for the Wildcats, and did not play at all in 15 games this season. He did have a big role in Kentucky’s Elite Eight win over Michigan, when he scored 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds in just 15 minutes. Lee didn’t have the classic one...

Report: UK’s Harrison Twins Leaning Towards NBA

The Harrison twins had a roller coaster season to say the least. It didn’t start off as people expected, but the twins continued to get better as the season went on. Their draft stock shot back up after they helped led Kentucky all the way to the National Championship. That run might have been enough to convince them the NBA is the right decision. Sources have told

Marcus Lee Throws Down Monster Two-Hand Alley-Oop Over Frank Kaminsky

Marcus Lee has come out of nowhere in the NCAA Tournament. Last year’s McDonald’s All-American emerged for John Calipari’s Wildcats against Michigan in the Elite 8, scoring a huge 10 points and grabbing 8 boards off the bench in Willie Cauley-Stein’s absence; he had only played in one minute of game time prior.

When the season started we all expected Kentucky to dominate the competition. That of course did not happen, but the Wildcats are certainly getting it done when it matters most. With Marcus Lee--and the rest of the guys of course--making plays like this one there is no telling how far the Wildcats can go.You can tell the guys are feeling it now too, and with stare downs like this...

Lee the unlikely hero as Kentucky dances on
