Marcus Lee wants to break the shot-blocking record at UK

After Marcus Lee announced his intentions to play basketball at Kentucky, his brother, Bryan, talked to Corey Albertson at Kentucky’s Rivals site about the commitment. The older Lee brother told Rivals that the visit to Lexington during Big Blue Madness weekend is what finalized the decision.

“Just watching them practice and seeing how they get a bunch of talented guys and bring them together,” Lee said of the family’s visit to UK. “You can tell when you watch a practice if guys are really interested in listening or not. At Kentucky it’s obvious that everyone is all the way bought in. Kentucky, more than anywhere, those guys believe in what Calipari says.”

But what stands out from Bryan Lee’s interview is Marcus’ individual goal once he starts playing for the Cats. The 6-foot-9 power forward wants to break the shot-blocking record at Kentucky.

“His goal is to break the shot-blocking record at Kentucky, which sounds ridiculous to say, but that’s his goal,” Bryan Lee told Rivals.com.

Lee averaged 9.1 blocks per game during his junior year of high school — yes, you read that correctly — but breaking the record?

Go for it, young fella. We’d love to see it.

Anthony Davis set the single season record last year with 186. Jamaal Magloire holds the career record with 268.

And who knows? Maybe it’ll be Nerlens Noel’s record by then.

    1 – not enough action on the Cards forums these days, huh? Glad you have the time to see what it’s like for fans of a quality program.

    As for Lee’s intentions – I hope he does! May have to stay around a few years to do it, but I think we’d all be ok with that…all of us besides Cardsohard

    He could plausibly get the career record if WCS leaves. That would give him probalby two years as a starter. Single season is a bit of a stretch, but can’t fault the kid for setting big goals. I hope he breaks both records.

    I am just jealous and insecure. I know that is year is the only year we are even worthy of being on the same floor at the CATS. What will happen in the game 100% guarantee: Siva over-penetrates, gets blocked by three UK players and withers away to the Spanish professional league…mark my chirps….

    My program is so boring and I’m so starved for good basketball, I love to come here and read your posts and post negative statements out of jealousy. I wish something would happen with my program, but all I have to look forward to is losing in the NCAA tournament

    Senior Year
    Nerlens Noel, 4 blocks per game
    Anthony Davis, 8 blocks per game
    Marcus Lee, 9 blocks per game

    So why the hype about Noel? Competition differences?

    Darius Miles averaged like 10 blocks per game his senior year in East STL… it’s hard to tell how it will translate. Of course, he didn’t play college ball.
