Cal forward Kately withdraws from school

BERKELEY, Calif. -- California junior forward Marquise Kately has withdrawn from school, though the two-year starter might
return in January.

Kately, who averaged 10.5 points as a freshman, scored 9.3
points per game last season, but apparently fell out of favor with
coach Ben Braun late in the season. With the Golden Bears'
additions of injured forward Leon Powe and Kansas transfer Omar
Wilkes this fall, Kately wasn't expected to start.

Kately's withdrawal wasn't related to academics, Braun said in a
statement. The forward is eligible to re-enroll for the spring
semester in January.
