John Calipari made a prediction last week. Marcus Lee is working to make sure it comes true.
Lee, a 6-foot-9 forward who’s played sparingly in his first two seasons at Kentucky, will turn heads in 2015-16, Calipari said, will make people question why the Wildcats coach didn’t use him more frequently as a freshman and sophomore.
Lee wants to prove him a prophet.
“I mean, I haven’t left this place since we got back (from the Final Four),” Lee said this week, standing in UK’s practice gym at the Joe Craft Center. “That’s the only thing I’ve been tying to prove.”
