NEW ORLEANS, La. (3/6/17) – Redshirt senior guard Devin Carter has been named to the All-Sun Belt Conference Second Team, the league office announced Monday.

Carter led the league in 3-pointers made (101) and 3-point field-goal percentage (.407) while ranking fifth in scoring at 16.6 points per game. He went 7-for-8 beyond the arc at South Alabama to break the single-season program record for 3-pointers. He is one of just 17 players this year with 100 or more 3-pointers made.

An All-Sun Belt Third Team selection last season, Carter helped A-State tie the program record for regular-season wins this year as the Red Wolves finished 20-11. Carter eclipsed 1,000 points earlier this year and presently ranks 24th on the program scoring list with 1,052 points. He is one of three players in program history to reach 1,000 points in just two seasons played.

Carter led the team in scoring in 17 of 31 games and he posted double figures in 25 out of the 31 games. His 25-point effort at South Alabama marked his 13th game this season with 20 or more points and 28th in two seasons at A-State. He also owns the single game 3-pointers made record, hitting 10 at UT Martin back on Dec. 14.

Carter and the Red Wolves are the No. 5 seed at this week’s Sun Belt Conference Tournament and open play Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. against No. 12 seed ULM. The game can be seen on ESPN3 and heard on the EAB/Red Wolves Sports Network from Learfield.
