Brittany Carter WNBA Draft Profile

Brittany Carter, Senior, Shooting Guard, Memphis

Memphis Team Page


Brittany Carter was a highly touted recruit coming out of high school and the Covington, Georgia native ended up playing for the Bulldogs of Georgia as a freshman. However, her playing time was limited and she averaged just 3.4 points per game in 14 appearances during her time in Athens. After that she opted to transfer to Memphis and it did not take the 5-9 shooting guard long to make an impact on her new team.

After sitting out a year, Carter started strong with the Lady Tigers. In her first game she totaled 20 points and in her second game she tallied a double-double. The rest of the 2009-2010 campaign pretty much went the same way and she ended the year averaging 19.2 points and 5.6 rebounds. As a result, Carter was named C-USA Newcomer of the Year and earned first team all-conference accolades. Carter’s numbers slumped during her junior campaign, but she still led Memphis in scoring and continued to be a solid rebounder.


Final Projection:

Carter also started to play better defense later in her collegiate career and, perhaps more importantly when projecting to the WNBA, learned to take better care of the ball. At 5-9, Carter is a surprisingly tough rebounder, but at the next level she will be asked to have the ball in her hands more often and keeping the turnovers down is very important. Carter is not much of a shooter, although she can hit enough three-pointers to keep the defense honest, but most of her scoring will come from attacking the basket.
