FEBRUARY PLAYER OF THE MONTH: Terquavion Smith (Farmville Central // NC State commit)
Each month here at The #HoopState Network we crown our player of the month award and for the month of February it belongs to Terquavion Smith of Farmville Central. Smith has been one of the top players in the State of North Carolina every single season of his high school career but this last month of February he was playing the best basketball of his life.
Farmville Central is an absolute powerhouse in every single way and Smith plays like he's the one manipulating the machine to his exact liking. In a pandemic shortened season, Smith has been able to achieve special individual moments along with incredible team success making him the no brainer choice for player of the month.
Smith led Farmville to a 7-0 record in the month of February including three of those wins coming in the NCHSAA 2A playoffs. In the first game of the month, Terquavion had 50 points against a loaded Trinity Academy of Raleigh team that came into Farmville with an upset in mind. Behind Terquavion's 50 piece, Farmville was able to secure a win and keep their undefeated season alive.
Fast forward a few weeks to the playoffs, Smith had 20 points in the first half as Farmville cruised to a win over Hertford County, then in a rematch of last years final four, Farmville went on the road to South Granville and won in a dominating fashion. Smith had 31 points and 5 assists in the 99-81 victory over South Granville.
In the elite eight, Smith and Farmville went on the road again, this time against Reidsville and his future NC State teammate and he delivered once again. Terquavion had 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists in another dominating win.
Smith's month of February is an embodiment of his entire high school career. Everywhere he goes Smith wins and produces at an elite level, so nothing has changed as the days continue to fly by. As Smith has two potential games left in his high school career, he has the chance to cement his legacy as one of the best high school players in the history of the HoopState. Three State Championships, close to 2,000 points, and going to play in the ACC, he is simply a special player and person.
