Before he headed to Southern California, Peninsula College’s J.T. Terrell had some business to take care of.
The USC-bound hoops star led the North Region All-Stars with 18 points in a 118-116 win against the South Region All-Stars at Pierce College in Tacoma on March 11.
Terrell, who transferred to Peninsula College after a year at Wake Forest, led the Pirates in scoring (and was third in the NWAACC) with 24.4 points per game and helped P.C. to a fourth-place finish at the NWAACC tournament.
In Tacoma on Saturday, Terrell hit six of 16 from the field (including a pair of 3-pointers), was 4-of-4 from the line and added eight rebounds, three steals and two assists in his nearly 21 minutes of play.
Teammate DeShaun Freeman also was named to the team but did not play, missing action at the end of the NWAACC tourney with a knee injury.
Freeman was named to the All-NWAACC tournament second team for his strong play in three of the Pirates’ four games. He averaged 21.3 points and 12 rebounds.
Dominique Williams of the NWAACC title-winning Tacoma Titans took home the tourney MVP while Jason Martin of the runner-up Chemeketa Storm took home an award for “Most Inspirational.”P.C.’s Terrell leads North All-Stars to win
