Ohio’s 2016 class has the potential to be one of the strongest to come out of the Buckeye state in some time. One of the reasons for the excitement over this year’s freshman class is 6’7 Seth Towns, of Columbus Northland. Towns wasted no time making his presence known last night in his high school debut. Less than five minutes into the game Seth got his first high school bucket on a breakaway dunk.
Towns scored the ball from every angle on Saturday night, showing just how dangerous he can be on the offensive end. Throughout the Spring and Summer Towns showed off a deadly fade away jumper, but last night Towns also showed the ability to pull up off the dribble. Seth also knocked down two three point buckets in the second half of Northland’s two point win over Toledo Rogers.
Towns finished the night with 21 points and 9 boards. The 2012 Clark Kellogg Tip Off Classic was the stage for Towns’ first big time performance in a Northland jersey, but it won’t be his last. If Towns continues to refine his offensive game and stays active on both ends of the court, the sky is the limit.
