Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - The nation's fourth-leading scorer from last season, Damion Lee, has transferred to Louisville.
Lee, an all-conference guard who has played his last three years at Drexel University, signed a financial aid agreement at Louisville, where he will enroll in graduate school after completing his general humanities and social science degree in June.
"Damion fills a big void for us in scoring," said Louisville coach Rick Pitino. "He's also an outstanding defensive player and is terrific at the free throw line, which is also a great asset for our team. He's an outstanding young man with a great attitude."
A member of the All-Colonial Athletic Association first team, Lee averaged 21.4 points last season. He also ranked among the CAA top 10 in rebounding with 6.1 per game and steals with 1.5 per contest. The Dragons finished last season with an 11-19 record and were sixth in the CAA.
Lee chose to attend Louisville for his final collegiate season after narrowing his choices to also include Arizona, Gonzaga, Marquette and Maryland.
