Kentucky scholarship signee Marcus Lee, a pogo-jumping 6-foot-10 center, put on a show of dunking, shot-blocking and behind-the-back, length-of-the-court dribbling in leading Deer Valley of Antioch to a 79-59 win over No. 12 Jesuit in tonight's finale of the four-game, 11th annual Father Kelly Tribute showcase and charity benefit at Jesuit High School.
Lee and teammate Kendall Smith, a dazzling 6-3 senior guard, each finished with 21 points for the Wolverines (10-3). Sophomore Isaiah Bailey had 16 points and 6-8 Brady Anderson added 11 for Jesuit (8-8).
