Kentucky Basketball: Marcus Lee to Return to Kentucky For 2014-15 Season

Andy Lyons

We all suspected Marcus Lee would come back. He's now made it official.

To no one's surprise, Marcus Lee has decided to return for his sophomore season at Kentucky. Here is an excerpt from the official announcement at UKAthletics.com:

"I've really enjoyed my college experience and I'm looking forward to continuing to develop as an all-around player," Lee said. "Playing in the Final Four was such an amazing feeling, but I want to come back and help win that final game this year."

You gotta love that attitude. Marcus really showed the world something when he came in and had a huge game against Michigan, scoring 10 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks in only 15 minutes of play against the Wolverines. His remarkable athleticism really showed out in that game. Here's a trip down memory lane for you:

Obviously, Lee is still pretty raw and needs to work on things besides blocks, put-backs, and layups. he has decent fundamentals on his shot and needs to become a face-up threat as well as learn some post moves, but this young man can really be good with a bit of seasoning. Best of all, he has one additional unteachable that has really mattered in the past — Final Four experience.

Congrats, Marcus! Can't wait to see you in Blue and White again next season.
