UA basketball commit Jordin Mayes helped Westchester High beat Newark Memorial 63-56 for the California Division I title Saturday in Bakersfield, Calif.

Mayes, a combination guard, had 11 points despite facing a box-and-one defense designed to stop him, his father said Sunday.

"They did what most teams try to do - keep the ball out of Jordin's hands," Darryel Mayes said. "But the one thing about Jordin, he's a quarterback. He doesn't have to go out and get good numbers every day."

Meanwhile, Arizona established itself as a leader for junior forward Angel Nunez, who completed an official visit to Tucson over the weekend.

Nunez, a Bronx, N.Y., native who played for Winchendon (Mass.) Prep this season, toured the UA campus and spent time with fellow New Yorkers Kevin Parrom and MoMo Jones. He also met with Californians Derrick Williams and Solomon Hill.

"He had a great experience with the school and the coaching staff was great," said Eric Martinez, Nunez's mentor.

Martinez said Nunez, who has also visited Syracuse and Virginia Tech, currently favors UA but will likely wait until August to make a decision.

Also, junior college forward Jesse Perry will finish an official visit to UA today and either make a decision afterward or schedule another visit, said Kyle Smithpeters, his assistant coach.
