Dynamic Guard Commits To UCSB

Arizona Sports News online

On and off the court, Marcus Shaver is used to being on the move.

The standout guard, who returned to Arizona after prepping in Texas and Nevada, announced Wednesday he has committed to play at UC-Santa Barbara after finishing his high school career at local power Shadow Mountain.

After two decorated seasons at St. Mary’s the three-star guard will play for head coach Mike Bibby and the defending Division II State Champions who appear poised for another title run despite losing leading scorers Michael Bibby and J.J. Rhymes.

The opportunity the scenic campus and Big West Conference school provided was too good for Shaver to pass up.

The talented point guard also took unofficial visits this summer to VCU, UNC Greensboro and Davidson.
