UofL MEN'S BASKETBALL | Catching Up with Damion Lee

01/25/2017 08:30 PM

Former Louisville men’s basketball player Damion Lee is currently recovering from his torn ACL he suffered in December.

Prior to the injury, Lee was finding success on the NBA Developmental League’s Maine Red Claws. He was averaging 17.8 points per game with the team prior to his release earlier this month.

It was Lee’s second ACL tear of his career.

Lee played for the Louisville Cardinals during the 2015-2016 season as a graduate transfer. He averaged 15.9 points per game that season.

Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff caught up with Lee on Wednesday afternoon. The two of them discussed Lee’s recovery and Lee’s hobby, photography:
