They don’t name most valuable players in high school basketball. But if they did, Lebanon’s Luis Aquino-Rios would be the boys’ MVP of Section One of the Lancaster-Lebanon League – and quite possibly of the entire league.

The Cedars recently wrapped up a championship in their first year back in Section One, with a decisive triumph over Penn Manor. And while Lebanon did it as a team and with a lot of interchangeable parts, Aquino-Rios was the one player who brought all the pieces together for the Cedars.

The junior guard has averaged over 11 points per game this season, has made three-quarters of his free throws and has been Lebanon’s most accurate three-point shooter, all the while handling the ball, running the offense and defending one of the opponents’ most prolific scorers. Also an accomplished football player, Aquino-Rios worked tirelessly in the off-season, on his shooting, his strength and his ball handling skills, all in preparation for this particular moment.
