A 6-foot-6 wing, Lee was the CAA’s leading scorer this past season, averaging 21.4 points before breaking his right hand in February. The Baltimore native took to Twitter to announce his final five on Sunday.
I have narrowed my list down to these schools in alphabetical order:
In addition to being a strong scorer, Lee averaged 6.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 43 percent from the field and 38 percent from 3-point range. As a graduate transfer, Lee is eligible to play in 2015-16 and will be a major boost to whichever program he chooses.
Drexel loses leading scorer for remainder of season to broken right hand
After winning six straight games to rebound from a slow start to conference play, Drexel has lost three straight games with the most recent being an 83-73 overtime loss at Northeastern on Saturday. And what makes matters even worse for head coach Bruiser Flint is the fact that he also lost his leading scorer in that game.
Damion Lee, who missed most of last season with a torn ACL, suffered a broken right hand in Saturday’s defeat. The news was announced by the school Sunday afternoon. Lee, who’s averaging 21.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game, plays just over 38 minutes per game for the Dragons.
Against Northeastern, Lee played all 45 minutes and tallied 30 points and grabbed five rebounds.
Lee is an incredibly important player for a team that in conference games is ranked ninth (out of ten teams) in scoring offense and dead last in field goal percentage. Without Lee, Drexel’s hopes of getting hot in next month’s conference tournament take a significant hit.
