No. 11 HS Sr Terrance Ferguson Skipping College To Play Overseas

ESPN No. 13 ranked high school senior Terrance Ferguson poured in 21 points to lead the USA squad to a 101-67 win over the World Select Team at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland.


The 34-point victory was the biggest in the Summit’s 19-year history.


Seniors No. 2 Jayson Tatum (Chaminade College Prep, Duke) had 14 points, No. 52 Payton Pritchard (West Linn HS, Oregon) added 12 points, and No. 10 Markelle Fultz (DeMatha Catholic, Washington) chipped in 11 for the US in the win.


For the World Select Team, No. 1 junior DeAndre Ayton (Hillcrest Academy/Bahamas), Ziming Fan (Foshan Long Lions/China), and Isaia Cordinier (Denain ASC Voltaire/France) scored 8 points apiece in Saturday’s lopsided loss.


The United States took over the game from the opening tip, shooting out to a quick 16-0 lead.


Ferguson then went on a rampage, scoring 18 straight points in a four-minute span in the first half while draining 6 three-pointers, to put the US up 44-22 and they never looked back.


“I just had it going,” Ferguson told USA Today. “The first few felt good and I knew it was on. They just kept feeding me after that. I just said, ‘Throw it up!’ That was the plan, throw it up.”


Ferguson, a 6-7 shooting guard who plays for Advanced Prep (Dallas, TX), averaged 11.7 points a game with MWA Elite on the Under Armour AAU circuit last season.


He was also one of only four high school players on the U19 USA Basketball squad at the FIBA championship last summer.


Ferguson decommitted from Alabama last month and is now looking for a new college program.
