Every time the Lebanon boys’ basketball team has needed a big bucket this season, the Cedars have looked to Marquis Ferreira. More often than not, Ferreira has delivered.
It’s that type of consistency upon which Lebanon built a title.
This week, Ferreira helped the Cedars to a 4-0 week and a Lancaster-Lebanon League championship.
On Saturday at Manheim Township High School, Ferreira tallied ten points in a 41-40 triumph over Hempfield that gave Lebanon the league title. Two nights earlier, the junior guard tossed in the same total during the Cedars’ 55-36 home victory over Cocalico in an L-L semifinal.
On Tuesday, Ferreira tossed in 15 points in Lebanon High’s wild 62-61, double overtime win over Warwick. Ferreira began his week by netting 13 points in Lebanon’s regular-season finale, a 74-58 home triumph over Penn Manor on Monday.
A member of the Cedars’ so-called ‘Big Three’, Ferreira typically does his damage as a deadly three-point shooter, an adept slasher to the basket and at the charity stripe. Ferreira is one of the Cedars’ top scorers, foul shooters and playmakers.
