Sydney Carter WNBA Draft Profile

Sydney Carter, Senior, Point Guard, Texas A&M

 Texas A&M Team Page


Sydney Carter was the heart and soul of the Texas A&M women’s basketball team that took home the 2011 NCAA National Championship. Others may have scored more points, grabbed more rebounds and even dished out more assists, but Carter was the glue that held that team together. During the championship season, Carter started 36 games and averaged 10.4 points, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals.

Before the Aggies garnered all of the attention of the women’s basketball world, Carter was working her way up the Texas A&M depth chart. As a freshman in 2008-2009, Carter averaged less than 14 minutes per game, but proved to be a decent shooter and a quality ball handler. Despite the limited playing time, Carter’s leadership was obvious and she was named a team captain for the 2009-2010 season. Once again she did a magnificent job keeping the turnovers down and continued to emerge as a quality shooter.


Final Projection:

Carter’s leadership ability will be fully tested during her senior season. The eyes of the women’s college basketball world are on Texas A&M to see what they can do following their National Championship. With Sydney Colson gone, Carter will be asked to be the primary ball handler and if she can endure the pressure and lead the Aggies to another successful season, there should be a spot for her in the WNBA.
