But what we have is a craft, knowledge, experience," he said. (AP Photo/Michel Euler)

There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.

Markus Howard, Perry, Guard: He’s been the cream of this freshman crop. It’s not simply his burgeoning talent, maturity, the early makings of a goatee, or willingness to make the big plays at crunch time that vaults the freshman guard to Player of the Year candidacy. To Markus, it’s also about being part of a family in which his older brother, senior Jordan Howard, scores nearly 10 points per game fewer than last season (25.6 to 16.4) and has deferred to his younger brother while taking on a different role. It’s worked, as the Howard brothers led the Pumas to the No. 4 seed and nearly knocked off No. 1 Corona del Sol in the Super Sectional final. Markus has won multiple games this season on last-second shots, but he also defers: “He’s pushed me since I was little, and he has a 4.5 GPA so there’s even competition to get better grades,” Markus said of Jordan. “His knowledge of the game and the way he approaches the seriousness of life. He lets me know what I do right and wrong. I’m my toughest critic but he does tell me a lot, and for the most part I hear them out.” While Barcello claimed to have heard opposing fans’ “freshman” chants once this season, Markus said he wouldn’t know because he doesn’t hear background noise, except the side effect after his older brother beats him 1-on-1.Well-spoken and polished, Markus’ NBA aspirations aren’t a secret, but he knows one person never makes a team. “I’m around a good group of guys who trust me and it’s been a great opportunity for me to be in,” Markus said. “I’m just getting started.”
