The game of basketball looks like it comes easy to Marcus LoVett, Jr. It's getting out of the gym after a game that can be a problem for the Providence High point guard.
The 15-year old freshman phenom carries a lot of hype with him and commands attention in any gym he's playing in for the Pioneers.
"It takes you five minutes to get him out of the gym because people are asking him for an autograph, a picture or whatever it may be," first-year Providence Coach Ernest Baskerville said.
A simple Google search of Marcus LoVett Jr. yields about 146,000 results, including articles and scouting reports on the highly touted national recruit by virtually any site that covers high school basketball.
"He never seems to be affected by all the attention," Baskerville said. "He is a pleasure to coach and that's what you ask for, a kid who can handle all that. That's a lot of pressure on a freshman and he is doing so well."
