Marcus Lee, a wiry 6-foot-9 freshman pressed into action because of an injury to Willie Cauley-Stein, had two pretty sweet dunks in the first eight minutes against Michigan in the Elite 8. Lee, who played one minute in the NCAA tournament prior to the game against Michigan, scored three baskets – all on offensive rebounds dunk-backs – for the Wildcats.
The first one wasn’t impressive – it rattled home – but the second two woke up the crowd and brought Kentucky to life after an early 14-6 deficit.
Lee’s six points are gravy – he hadn’t scored more than one basket in a game since November 19th.
