2013 Pioneers Hoops Showdown: Primetime Matchup - Providence vs Notre Dame

Marcus LoVett Scores 48 Points

In the primetime matchup of the Pioneer Hoops Showdown, the host Providence Pioneers and star sophomore sensation Marcus LoVett Jr. put on quite a show for those in attendance. Providence defeated the Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks) Knights 69-61 behind an impressive 48 point performance from LoVett.

The super sophomore scored in a variety of ways, slashing to the hoop, knocking down step back jumpers and making a living at the foul line. Coming off a 47 point outing against Campbell Hall, LoVett was in a good rhythm from the outset and continues to put up ridiculous numbers.

As of now, LoVett has official offers from a few top Division I basketball programs. However, at this point there are no front-runners or favorites and Marcus is open to being contacted from any schools that are interested.
