THREE COLLEGES based in Florida had been making overtures to Britton Lee because of his basketball skills. Monday night, however, the 5-10, 175-pound guard from Roman Catholic made an oral commitment to Robert Morris, in Pittsburgh.
That might seem like a curious move, especially since Lee is a junior, but it makes every last bit of sense to him.
"Why am I doing this? Because of all the loyalty they've shown," Lee said. "They've been after me since 2 years ago. And they were my very first offer. Any time they've been able to call me [by NCAA rule], they've done it. And any time they've been able to see me play [in AAU events], they've done that, too.
