Terquavion Smith Stays Hot in Myrtle Beach

Brett Friedlander

The start of a new bracket at the Big Shots Myrtle Beach showcase basketball tournament hasn't cooled off NC State commit Terquavion Smith.

The four-star guard, playing for Tea Marie Hoops, continued his scoring onslaught while leading his team to wins in both of its games Saturday, hitting a combined seven three-pointers along the way.

Smith started the day by scoring 13 points in a a 71-30 demolition of Big Shots Elite SC Premier. He followed that up by hitting five treys and pouring in 23 points in an equally lopsided 98-69 victory against Defenders 2020.

De'Ante Green, a 6-foot-9 Class of 2022 power forward from The Christ School in Arden, who is also a recruiting target of Wolfpack coach Kevin Keatts, also had 23 points for Tea Marie Hoops.

Smith led the team to a perfect 4-0 record in the first phase of the Myrtle Beach event played Thursday and Friday, finishing with 14 three-pointers -- the second highest total in the field. His 67 points were the fifth most of all players in the tournament.

A 6-foot-3, 180-pound All-State selection, Smith, is ranked as the No. 3 player in North Carolina and has led Farmville Central to back-to-back 2A state championships. He was listed as one of the top 10 standouts to watch in the tournament.

He is one of two 2021 Wolfpack commitments. Four-star power forward Ernest Ross from Alachua, Fla. is the other.
