On Friday against Michigan, McLemore played much better, helping Kansas build a double-digit lead, but the Jayhawks could not hold off a late Michigan rally and lost, 87-85, in overtime. McLemore finished with 20 points, shot 8 for 15, including 4 for 8 from three-point range, and grabbed five rebounds, showing why he's considered a likely top-five pick should he enter the NBA Draft.
McLemore, a 6'5 guard, averaged 15.8 points and 5.3 rebounds per game this season while shooting 49 percent and 42 percent from three-point range. He's currently projected as the second overall pick in the draft by DraftExpress.
