Terrance Arceneaux has had one thing on his mind all this season and that is to wait for his moment and show not only the Texas media, but the national media that his name would be one that you would be hearing a lot of soon.  The class of 2022 6’7 wing is the standout player for the newly crowned 5A state champion Beaumont United High School who capped off their undefeated season with Arceneaux putting on a performance that will forever be remembered in the state of Texas.  This performance was his coming out party for all to see. 

The Kimball Knights out of the Dallas area would be the last thing standing in the way of completing an undefeated season and from the tip Arceneaux wanted to make things noticeably clear, that this night would belong to him.  He dazzled the crowd with a wide range of offensive moves that would create matchup challenges for Kimball no matter who they put in front of him.  He displayed his ability to get into paint and finish at the rim with contact, as well as pull from anywhere on the floor and show off his silky-smooth pull up jump shot.  Led by Terrance, United got off to a commanding first half lead but the Knights would fight and claw their way back to take the lead late in the fourth quarter.  It was at that point where Arceneaux refused to let his team lose and showed the people in attendance that he could take his game to an even higher level on the bright stage.  

Beaumont United found themselves down 3 points with seconds left and Arceneaux rose over three defenders and hit one of the biggest shots in Texas basketball history to send the game into overtime.  That shot was only the preview to what was to come and the play in the overtime period did not disappoint.  The game would go back and forth throughout the overtime period and Kimball would find themselves up two points with under 10 seconds left.  That was until Arceneaux got the ball and calmly stepped into a three-point shot from the top of the key and sealed the victory for United and brought the championship back to the city of Beaumont.  He made sure to find his biggest fans, his mother and father immediately after nailing the gaming winning three.  It was a special moment for the family as they have witnessed all the hard work that he has put in to get to this point. They had tears of after watching him display it all on such a big stage.  He would go on to finish the game with 24 points, a record 9 blocks, and 7 rebounds as well as capturing the Championship game MVP honors. 

Arceneaux is currently being recruiting by the likes of Houston, Lamar, LSU, Old Dominion, Oral Roberts, Rice, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Missouri.  We fully expect for this list to grow substantially as he will get to showcase his skills this spring and summer on the travel circuit.  Terrance will play for the Texas based JL3 squad in the Nike EYBL this travel season.
