Lebanon High has a long and storied history in the sport of boys’ basketball. It is a tradition that Marquis Ferreira is aware of, and one he has every intention of helping to continue.
In the early going of the 2019-20 season, Ferreira has burst on to the local hoops scene. To this point, the sophomore guard has been one of the Cedars’ most consitent performers.
On Friday at home, Ferreira tallied 17 points, as Lebanon edged McCaskey 63-61 in a key Lancaster-Lebanon Section One-Two crossover contest. Ferreira’s performance included four deuces, a pair of treys and three-for-five foul shooting.
The outcome left the Cedars 2-2 overall and 1-0 in Section Two.
Three nights early, during a 60-53 road setback at Governor Mifflin, the emerging Ferreira had notched 11 points for Lebanon. That outing featured a couple of three-point field goals and two two-pointers.
Through Lebanon’s first four games, Ferreira was among Lebanon’s leaders in scoring, three-pointers and free throw shooting.
As the Cedars continue to grow throughout the season, Ferreira will be counted on to contribute in all those categories, and more.
