Ivan Rabb had an incredible game at state for Bishop O'Dowd against Mater Dei. He defended all over the court. He grabbed every loose rebound. He blocked shots. He disrupted 5-star big man MJ Cage. Along with his point guard Paris Austin, he rallied Bishop O'Dowd back numerous times after trailing almost the entire game, only leading for a few seconds. Rabb finished with 19 points, 20 rebounds, and 3 blocks in a monstrous effort at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley.
And Rabb made the biggest bucket of the game, nailing the game winning free throw with .8 of a second left to win state for his school.

Rabb is down to Cal and Arizona. His decision might come at any time. But contrary to original rumor, it did not come after state. Rabb wanted the state championship celebration to be about his team, and decided to avid a commitment at the moment.

Ivan Rabb didn't announce his college decision but did say the electric energy of Bay Area fans rooting helps Cal cause.— Joe Davidson (@SacBee_JoeD) March 29, 2015
But Rabb did say he still might consider committing sometime in the next few days. The decision just won't be tonight.

California is trying to package Ivan Rabb, Caleb Swanigan & Jaylen Brown. Pitching the 3 on playing together. Rabb would be first domino.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) March 29, 2015
So stay tuned. Rabb watch continues.
