"I am very excited to announce the addition of Justice and Grant to our Cal family," said new head coach Wyking Jones. "Both are tremendous basketball players, but more importantly they are unbelievable young men of high character."
Sueing was a late-bloomer for the Monarchs, who made a run to the state Open Division semifinals, where they fell, 60-53, to Bishop Montgomery, the eventual state champions.
The 6-foot-6 Sueing led Mater Dei with 18.2 points per game, as the Monarchs won the Trinity League and was runner-up in the CIF Open Division and CIF State Southern Section.
"Justice is a versatile wing who can score in a number of different ways and impact the game on both ends," Jones said. "He has a great feel for the game and comes from a program in Mater Dei that has a tradition of players that have gone on to have success in college and beyond."
The son of a former Hawaii standout of the same name, who played professionally in Israel and Luxembourg, Sueing was named an All-CIF-SS Open Division and Orange County Register All-County selection this year, having earned a nod on the USA TODAY All-USA Hawaii Boys Basketball Team early in his high school career. A member of the National Honor Society, Sueing was named to the Mater Dei honor roll and All-Academic First Team. He plans to attend medical school and become an orthopedic surgeon when his basketball career is over.
He has a nice feel and is a very good passer, which besides his versatility in general and his plus athleticism may be his best attribute. Sueing has a solid wing frame with decent length with room to continue to get stronger.
The lefty is better from midrange than three but is capable of hitting jumpers from both spots. He can hit catch and shoot threes or hit one and two dribble pull-ups, while he also has floaters with both hands. In general, his jumper will be the biggest area of improvement for him moving forward.

From a Land Down Under
Anticevich is a bit of a project, a lanky 6-foot-8 forward out of Sydney who played with the New South Wales State U20 and U18 squads, earning a silver medal at the Australian U20 National Championships. He and Newington College won back-to-back conference and state titles in his junior and senior seasons, going 80-17 overall.
"Grant is a skilled post player who excels away from the basket with his ability to shoot and his exceptional passing," Jones said. "He too has an unbelievable feel for the game and high basketball IQ."
http://www.scout.com/college/california/story/1759406-anticevich-talks-c... Anticevich, contrary to recruiting norms here, actually got his recruiting start after he graduated -- he finished his senior year with the end of the school year in December. The Bears coaches did their homework with the 6-foot-8, 210-pound Australian, thanks to a few well-placed eyes down under, and after an official visit while Cal faced Oregon, pulled the trigger in early March.
"I chose Cal because of the fantastic coaching staff and the incredible school that Cal is," Anticevich said in a statement released by the Bears. "I just knew that it was the right place for me both on and off the court."
Anticevich and Sueing's are the latest addition to Cal's 2017 class, which already includes Wooden Award High School Player of the Year Juhwan Harris-Dyson and Woods Cross (Utah) product Trevin Knell, who will defer to serve a two-year LDS Church mission immediately following high school graduation and will reclassify to 2019. The Bears lost signee Jemarl Baker, who was released from his letter of intent after the departure of Cuonzo Martin, and then committed to Kentucky.
Cal still has at least two spots left in the class, and can fill them via graduate transfers or regular transfers. There has been mutual interest, according to a source close to the situation, between the Bears and Duke transfer Chase Jeter.
