KANSAS CITY, Mo. (3/22/17) – The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced today the 2016-17 NABC Division I All-District teams with senior guard Devin Carter selected First Team District 24.

Carter led the Sun Belt Conference in 3-pointers made (102) and 3-point field-goal percentage (.402) while ranking fifth in scoring at 16.4 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 27 players nationally with 100 or more 3-pointers made on the season.

An All-Sun Belt Second Team selection, 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 finished his career ranked 24th on the program scoring list with 1,062 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 32 games and he posted double figures in 26 out of the 32 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 is the fifth player in program history to be awarded First Team All-District honors from NABC. He is the first since Kirk Van Slyke (2012-13) and joins Chico Fletcher (3x, 1997-2000), Micah Marsh (1997-98) and John Tate (2x, 1987-89).
