Former Stanford All-American Featured On Fox Sports Bay Area
May 11, 2001
Stanford, Ca - Arthur Lee, who helped guide the Stanford basketball team to the 1998 NCAA Final Four, will be the subject of a special feature on the Bay Area Sports Report on Monday (MAY 14) at 6:30 p.m. pst.
Lee is playing professional basketball in Europe, and is part of a series on 'Strangers in a Strange Land.'
During the 1997-98 season, Lee averaged 13.2 points per game, and gained All-America and Pac-10 honors. Lee will always be remembered for single-handedly leading Stanford to victory in the final minutes of play against Rhode Island to allow Stanford to reach the NCAA Final Four during the 1997-98 season. Lee scored 13 of Stanford's 17 final points in the final 2:05 of the NCAA Tournament game against Rhode Island. His speed, quickness and work ethic allowed him to be one of the best defensive guards Stanford has ever had.
Lee's name appears seven times in the Top 10 in the Cardinal record book, and is the current NCAA Tournament record holder in free throw percentage. In 12 NCAA games, Lee made 58-of-62 free throws for .935. Lee, who led the Pac-10 in free throw percentage shooting during his junior and senior seasons, has a career free throw percentage of .866, #3 all-time in Stanford history.
Lee also had the distinction of being the first Stanford men's basketball player to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated (college basketball issue, Nov. 23, 1998).
