Carter was honorable mention All-American

Monday, June 30, 2014 05:13 pm
After graduating three players who combined for 89 starts last season, the IPFW women's basketball program could use an infusion of talent on the perimeter. It did just that Monday, as Mastodon coach Chris Paul announced the signing of junior college transfer Kamilah Carter.“We are thrilled to have Kamilah join our basketball team this upcoming year,” Paul said in a release. “To be able to add a player of her caliber this late is a tremendous boost for our program.

Carter spent the past two seasons at Midland (Texas) College and then Owens Community College (Ohio) and was named a 2014 WBCA JC/CC Coaches' All-America Team Honorable Mention after averaging 19.3 points per game and 3.7 assist per game for the Express.

The 5-foot-4 athlete can play either guard spot and was also named First Team All-Region XII and First Team All-OCCAC.

She is a combo guard who knows how to score; either by shooting the three or putting pressure on the defense by getting to the basket," Paul said.

The Ann Arbor, Mich. native led Owens to a 26-3 record, including finishing the season ranked fifth in the NJCAA national poll.

In her lone season at Owens, Carter went for 20 or more point 12 times, while scoring in double figures in all 29 games. Her 559 points ranked fifth most in Owens single-season history.

Carter finished the season shooting 44.3 percent from the floor, 36.2 percent from beyond the arc, and 79.7 percent from the foul line.

As a senior at Pioneer High School, Carter averaged 19.1 points and was named AP Class-A First Team All-State and was AnnArbor.com's Washtenaw County Player of the Year. She was also a two-time selection to AnnArbor.com's All-Washtenaw County Dream Team.

The Mastodons will also add Allyson Bunch and KeShyra McCarver, both of whom signed in the fall.
