Cardinal Newman has had success in producing talent that can play at the next level. One of those success stories has to be Murray State sophomore guard Chico Carter Jr., who has really opened up eyes with his play this season.
At Cardinal Newman, Carter consistently showed that he was a polished player that had a nice blend of strength and quickness on the floor. He always displayed that he could play with a tremendous IQ but also be an elite shooter that just has a knack for scoring the ball with ease. Carter demonstrated that on multiple occasions at the high school level and is continuing that at Murray State.
Just take a look at the career he has had so far and what he has been doing this year for the Racers; it is all in the stats!
Freshman: (22 Games) 6.3 points, 1.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 44.4 field goal percentage, 38.2 3-point shooting percentage
Sophomore: (20 Games) 12.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 52.6 field-goal percentage, 48.7 3-point shooting percentage
He is having a tremendous sophomore campaign, nearly tripling the number of three-pointers made, and is shooting the ball incredibly well as a 6’2 guard.
The Columbia prospect is really making a big name for himself in the OVC and as he continues to elevate his game down the road even more, Carter could quickly become a name in the national spotlight for the Racers.
