The casual Lebanon County basketball fan hasn’t heard of Alexis Hill – yet. It would seem that it’s just a matter of time before Hill becomes a local household name.
This week, Hill continued to burst on to the local basketball scene, and the Lebanon High girls’ basketball team continued to improve and impress.
On Saturday night, in the opening round of Lebanon’s Holiday tournament, the Cedars’ athletic freshman forward was all over the floor during her team’s 53-45 triumph over Lebanon Catholic. Employing quickness, length and tenacity, the 5-9 Hill pumped in ten of her team’s first-quarter total of 14 points, as the Cedars opened an eight-point lead over the Beavers they would never relinquish.
Hill finished with a game-high 19 points and a game-high 18 rebounds.
The victory was Lebanon High’s fifth in its last six contests and lifted it to 6-3 on the year.
