    Towns is next at Northland...............The Columbus (Ohio) Northland basketball program is still loaded with a talent. A freshman forward could be the next outstanding player that the Vikings produce.

    Seth Towns (6'8 SF / Columbus Northland / 2016):

    Leading Northland to a final four berth in the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Towns' 24 points were a game-high in the Vikings elite eight win vs. Potomac (MD) Bullis School. After a slow start to his sophomore season, Towns is catching fire offensively, which should only add to the success Northland is going to have this season. Receiving a great deal of interest from Michigan, among others, as of late, Towns is far and away the top sophomore in Central Ohio.

    Northland survives four-point third quarter to take down Teays Valley

    In a game that seemed to be fairly easy for Northland coming into Tuesday night, the top-seeded Vikings had a bit of trouble in dispatching No. 21 seed Teays Valley, 51-44.

    Heading into halftime with a 30-16 lead, Northland was outscored 14-4 in the third quarter to head into an interesting fourth quarter with just a 34-30 lead. Northland would have the advantage in the fourth, outscoring the underdog Teays Valley 17-14 to advance to yet another district championship game.

    Leading the way for Northland was sophomore wing Seth Towns, who went for a game-high 17 points. Towns led Northland with two field goals from behind-the-arc, in addition to a game-high five points from the free-throw line. No other Northland player scored in double-digits, as junior center Doug Taylor added nine points, while seniors Jaylen Tucker and Derek McKeithen each had eight points.

    For Teays Valley, senior combo-guard Tyler Primmer led all Viking scorers with 15 points, including nine points from the three-point line. Primmer wraps up a brilliant career at Teays Valley as one of the area's top scorers this season, and looks to have a successful career at the next level for Division II power West Liberty.

    With the win, Northland advances to face the winner of No. 8 Westerville Central and No. 10 Delaware Hayes on Sat. March 8 at 1 p.m. at the Ohio Fairgrounds Coliseum. Northland's road to regionals looks to be more challenging than in recent years as the Vikings don't seem to be the vaunted threat that they have been in the past.

    Like Moyer, Towns is a slender forward who operates well in the open floor. He's probably more combo forward than true wing but shoots well, is an excellent passer and has the type of frame that will easily add muscle. He also feels a previous offer from Virginia Tech will hold up and mentioned additional offers from Xavier and Dayton to go along with interest from Stanford, Ohio State, West Virginia, Iowa and many more.
