MARION — Morgan Paige has committed to play women’s basketball at the University of Wisconsin. Her younger brother apparently is in no hurry to make a college decision.

“He going to wait until his junior year,” the siblings’ mother, Sherryl Gaffney-Paige, said Monday morning. “He’ll see where he fits in. He’s in no rush at all.”

Gaffney-Paige said that Marcus, the starting point guard as Linn-Mar (23-3) advanced to the Class 4A state final, “is getting a lot of notice” from Northern Iowa, Iowa State, Iowa, Wisconsin, Creighton and Virginia.

A 6-footer, Paige averaged 7.3 points and 3 assists per game. His coming-out party came in the state semifinal, when he scored 12 of his career-high 22 points as the Lions rallied past Bettendorf. He scored eight points in the championship-game loss to Ames.
