A somber Marcus Lee and Jamal Murray met with reporters after the game to discuss UK’s 74-62 loss to Vandy, and when asked what John Calipari was most frustrated about in the locker room, Lee had an immediate answer.
“Bigs not contributing,” Marcus Lee said. “That’s something where we can’t be in and out of games like that. We can’t have foul trouble. We can’t totally zone out the first half and that’s something we did today. For us to be successful, we have to be on point big wise the whole game.”
“Honestly, I have no idea why it was that way,” Lee said when asked. “We honestly shouldn’t have — especially me and Alex, we’re vets. It falls on our shoulders to set an example and to lead like that. We weren’t there today.”
Later on, a reporter asked Marcus how the bigs plan to fix their consistency issue by the time postseason play starts, and Jamal Murray stepped in to speak for his teammate.
“Marcus is fine, man. He’s fine. He’s always energetic, always up, keeps the team going, so is Alex, so we rely on them. Today they were kind of flat, but they’re no issue for us.”
