According to a report on nhnotebook.com, Jourdain and Joseph Bell will be transferring from Bishop Brady to Lee (Me.) Academy. The Bell brothers led the Brady boys’ basketball team to a 14-6 record this year and a spot in the Division II quarterfinals. Jourdain, a junior, was named the D-II Player of the Year after averaging 24 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and five steals per game. Joe, a sophomore, was named to the D-II Second Team after averaging 18 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five assists per game.
Lee Academy has sent basketball players to Division I college programs like Massachusetts, Colorado, Texas A&M, LaSalle and St. Bonaventure. The team plays a schedule that includes small colleges and top prep schools. The 2013-14 Lee roster featured 15 international players coming from all over the world - Serbia, Greece, Brazil, Spain, Puerto Rico, China and Lithuania - and just three American student-athletes. Lee Coach Igor Vrzina is a native of Serbia.
