Postseason Q&A: J.T. Terrell

One of the most prolific scores this season in North Carolina high school basketball was 2010 Wake Forest commit J.T. Terrell. He scorched the nets for an average of 30 points per game during his junior campaign. DeaconSports spoke with Terrell about his season and his plans for this spring and summer.

Cummings High School's standout shooting guard J.T. Terrell has very little problem putting the ball in the basket. Whether is is from long range or taking his man off the dribble, Terrell is almost impossible to stop. While his team came up two games short of a state title, Terrell still feels it was a successful season.

Tate Myers: J.T., how do you feel your junior season went?
J.T. Terrell: "I think it went really well. Of course my goal was to be playing at the Dean Dome for the state title but we came up a bit short. I really believed we had a shot at the title going into this season. I still really enjoyed the season and I think we did great. We only have one senior on the team so we should be good again next year."

TM: What part of your game do you feel you improved on most this season?
JT: "I really got into the weight room this season which helped a lot. Also, I did not rely on my jumpshot this year. I really worked on my ability to get to the rack and get to the foul line."

TM: What do you want to work on during your AAU season with D-One Sports?
JT: "I just want to continue working on my all around game. I'm not sure who will be on our team this year but we should be good again. I know Deuce is playing with us again."

TM: What makes you such a dynamic scorer?
JT: "I think it's the scorers mentality my mom says I have. I really believe I can score on anyone who is guarding me in a variety of ways."

TM: What do you think of Wake's season so far?
JT: "They have done really well. I think they have a chance to win the whole thing. I really like seeing them get up and down the court. That's my style."

* DeaconSports will be in attendance later this month to see Terrell in person at Dave Telep's Carolina Challenge and will have more from him then.
