Terquavion Smith Continues to Shine at Basketball Showcase Event

Brett Friedlander

NC State basketball commit Terquavion Smith had another big day at the Big Shots Myrtle Beach tournament Friday.

Building on two strong performances to begin the 17-under showcase event, the four-star guard from Farmville Central High School scored a team-leading 22 points to lead his team, Tea Marie Hoops, to an 81-54 victory against Garner Road in the first of the day's two games. He followed that up with a 12-point performance in a 94-64 rout of Team Trezz.

Smith scored 19 and 14 points in wins on Thursday. He finished the four-game tournament with 14 three-pointers, second most in the field. His 67 points were the fifth most in the event.

His performance against Garner Road included five three-pointers. It's the second time in the tournament he's done that.

Among those on the Garner Road team are four-star guard D'Marco Dunn, who led his team with 17 points, and other top prospects Lucas Taylor (Heritage High School) and Will Felton (transferring to Hargrave Military Academy from Millbrook High).

Taylor, a three-star 6-foot-6 small forward whose stock is rising rapidly -- including a recent offer from Ohio State -- could potentially be a target of Wolfpack coach Kevin Keatts.

Another player that has received attention from Keatts and the Wolfpack is De'Ante Green, Smith's teammate on Tea Marie Hoops.

A 6-foot-9 Class of 2022 power forward from The Christ School in Arden, Green was impressive in Friday's afternoon game. He finished with 27 points in the rout of Team Trezz.

Tea Marie Hoops finished a perfect 4-0 in its bracket.

Smith, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound All-State selection 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.
