ImageDuncan Lee played basketball with the Victoria Chinese Students Athletic Club, which sought to overcome the racial prejudices of the age by competing in soccer, softball, bowling, table tennis and basketball. The club was formed in 1927 after a traveling Filipino basketball team played a local senior team before enthusiastic crowds. The athletic club was inducted into the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

Lee, who graduated from Victoria High School in 1940, later became a greenhouse owner in Victoria known for his disbud chrysanthemums.
