Player Feature: Kebrina Lucas & Marcell Lucas College athletes are known for their strong, sibling-like bond they share with each other, but for Northeast freshmen basketball players Kebrina and Marcell Lucas, it truly is a family affair. It all started when the pair was kids just playing around in the yard, and now they share the same college court. “It’s a lot of fun playing with him because we grew up playing together in our grandparent’s back yard,” Kebrina said. “Before the games he’s always hyping me up. It really means a lot to hear my brother cheering for me up in the stands which motivates me to play even better.” Another advantage Kebrina explains is the fact that they can help each other improve on their game. “When we get done practicing we work with each other and try to make ourselves better,” Kebrina said. “We just feed off of each other.” Marcell Lucas is not ashamed of taking pointers from his sister. “She’s always helping me improve on my shooting and dribbling,” Marcell said. Although they use each other’s talent to improve themselves, there was a time when losing led to embarrassment. Kebrina Lucas “We would always go out in the back yard and play basketball and we played against each other one day and I beat him,” Kebrina fondly recalled. “I was so excited because I did stuff he could not do so I really embarrassed him which made him cry.” Marcell, while laughing, does not deny that embarrassing memory and even says that it was not uncommon for Kebrina to beat him in one-on-one. Kebrina, with her strong personality and dominating basketball skills, said that she was not always this confident. “Back in middle school, I was very scared and nervous to play

at first,” Kebrina said, “but after I started working at my game and playing AAU, it just got better from there.” Because Marcell graduated from Baldwyn High School and Kebrina graduated from New Albany High School they did not get to see each other play much. “I really never got to see my sister play basketball in high school,” Marcell said. “Now that we go to the same college, I really enjoy watching her play.” Although they do not have to worry about helping each other study, Kebrina jokingly claims that she is the ‘smarter one’. However, both athletes said that they use basketball as discipline to study more. Kebrina and Marcell both credit their love of basketball to their family members that have inspired and motivated them along the way. Kebrina’s motivation comes from the women closest to her. “My mother and grandmother come to all the games and are such an inspiration to me,” Kebrina said. Marcell is encouraged with the knowledge of his family’s past accomplishment and success. “Hearing about my relatives playing ball and achieving a lot has inspired me to achieve Marcell Lucas something in my lifetime, too,” Marcell said. The Lucas-duo say they both tried many different sports growing up, but nothing comes close to their love of basketball. After their time here, they both plan on moving up to the next level of basketball and continuing their pursuit towards a degree in athletic training. However, it’s the journey from backyard basketball to college crowds and hardwood courts that has only strengthened the bond between Kebrina and Marcell Lucas, and will carry on no matter what goals they pursue or shoot on.
