SOUTH REGIONAL

He likes to use long distance

March 12, 2007|David Wharton

On a Texas A&M team where guard Acie Law IV grabs most of the spotlight, sophomore Josh Carter has quietly become the most accurate long-range shooter in the nation, making 51.9% of his three-point attempts.

Carter's marksmanship began in a late November game against Idaho State when he made eight of 10 three-point attempts. He made eight of 13 against Grambling in December and eight of 11 versus Nebraska last month, making him the only player in the nation with eight three-pointers in three games.

By the end of the regular season, he had set a school record with 80 three-pointers.

Another scary thought for Pennsylvania, which faces the Aggies in a first-round game: Last season, Carter wasn't much of a presence inside. But over the summer, he grew an inch to 6 feet 7, gained 20 pounds and this season leads his team with 12 dunks.
