Deer Valley High basketball star Marcus Lee will announce his college decision Wednesday morning at the school, Wolverines coach LeChet Phillips said Tuesday.
Lee, a 6-foot-9, 205-pound forward, is rated as a five-star recruit and the 15th-best prospect in the class of 2013 by www.rivals.com.
Lee had narrowed his list to Cal and Kentucky and was supposed to take an official visit to Berkeley this Saturday for Big Game weekend. However, he visited Kentucky last weekend, attending the school's "Big Blue Madness" and came away impressed.
Lee tweeted a photo of Kentucky's practice facility and wrote, "No filter can make it any better. It's just perfect."
Lee averaged 13.9 points, 13.9 rebounds and 9.1 blocks per game during the 2011-12 season, as the Wolverines finished 22-9, won the Bay Valley Athletic League and advanced to the North Coast Section Division I championship game. Lee was named the BVAL's Co-Most Valuable Player.
California d. San Ramon Valley: The Grizzlies served notice that the East Bay Athletic League crown will run through them as they beat the Wolves in three games, 25-19, 25-17, 25-23.
The win gives California (21-3, 8-1 EBAL) essentially a two-game lead over the Wolves (19-8, 7-2), having beat them twice in league play. Each team has five league matches left.
This time around the Grizzlies won in three games after winning in four last time. California trailed 19-12 in the third game before rallying for a 22-20 lead and holding on.
"I don't want to say it was a statement game, because it's any given day in this league," California coach Todd Baham said. "We still give teams too many chances, but something lit a fire under them in that third game."
California relied heavily on Santa Clara-bound outside hitter Sabrina Clayton.
She finished with 25 kills in the three games, including 10 in the first game as California set the tone early by scoring the game's final six points.
"They have a fantastic outside hitter, and they are a really good team," San Ramon Valley coach Brian Fujinaga said. "We just didn't execute. We had chances, and we didn't execute when we had opportunities."
San Ramon Valley's Emily Reder finished with a team-high 18 kills.
