Devin Carter Comes Up Big In The Clutch Against Missouri
For those of you who began following this site once the regular season started, throughout last summer we had a series of videos that showed the games of Al Durham and Justin Minaya after they signed with Providence. The intent was to get Friar fans familiar with the play of the incoming transfers by showing video of their previous stints at Indiana and South Carolina.
I plan on doing the same throughout this spring and summer with PC’s latest signees.
Here’s the disclaimer I’ll add to each of these articles throughout the offseason: These videos are not meant to be purely highlights. They will certainly highlight what each of these players does well, but I will try to include every possession I watch to balance the excitement of a signing, while setting realistic expectations.
In other words, you’ll see the good, bad, and everything in-between.
March 1 was Senior Night at South Carolina, but it was freshman Devin Carter who led the team in scoring (17) and rebounding (8) in a narrow, 73-69, victory over a struggling Missouri team.
The victory improved South Carolina’s SEC record to 9-8, while Missouri dropped to 10-20 overall and 4-13 in league play.
Carter was particularly good down the stretch, scoring eight points over the game’s final 4:38 to help put away the Tigers. This marked the fourth time in six games that Carter scored in double figures.
In 23 minutes, he shot 5-10 from the field, 1-4 from deep, and 6-7 at the free throw line. Carter came off the bench to grab eight rebounds, to go along with two turnovers and zero assists. Despite not starting, Carter was inserted in the game three minutes in.
Carter’s biggest play of the night came at the 1:20 mark in a 60-59 game when he finished his second three point play off the game after a cut and banked in layup.
He put the game away with a late dunk.
