Rick Pitino Says Transfer Guard Damion Lee Has "No Question" Been Louisville's Best Player

Damion Lee's transfer to Louisville was lauded with a lot of hype by the college basketball world. The former Drexel guard averaged 21.4 points a game in 2014-15 and was thought to be the best graduate transfer on the market. 

The 6-foot-6, 200-pound shooting guard has apparently lived up to the hype so far. 

Rick Pitino said this morning that Lee has "no question" been his team's best player in practice.

That probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Lee is experienced, extremely talented and could be one of the top players in the country in 2015-16.
