ack in August, before the Cats’ 100-pound coats were distributed to players, sophomore forward Marcus Lee sat down in a chair in the Joe Craft Center gymnasium during this season’s first media opportunity.
He refused a Gatorade, because mere mortals on other teams accept electrolytes from their drinks. This team, at least through the last game in November, has not been merely mortal.
Lee smiled, as he seems to do a lot no matter if its the media, his family or his friends, and answered a question about UK’s potential with his unique honesty.
“We’re looking to kill people,” he said. “We’re going to try and be one of the best teams around here.”
It was a statement Lee made last season about the freshman-laden Cats’ chances. That team learned how to play a lethal brand of UK basketball in the second week of March. How long would it take for this season’s team to find its formula to win?
