Carter even has started to fail at the line too many times.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Carter has the yips, and completely lacks confidence offensively. Even labs are an adventure. He did make the pass of the game with a drive to the hole and kick out to KyKy for a dagger 3. He also had a questionable offensive foul called against him late in the game as well. I've been a Carter apologist, and still think he has value, but don't believe he warrants the amount of time he's playing. Hopefully, the light comes on soon.

I like Carter but he seems to defer to the other players, maybe because he is the new guy or maybe his loss of confidence. I notice if he misses a three early he runs and hides. I hope before the end of the year he finds his way because his three-point shooting would really help. Just think what this team could be if Carter, KyKy, Freemantle could give us tose threes

Carter is actually showing signs of improvement. Agree he still could use a bit more confidence. Also, agree he has the yips on F/T's. He shot a much higher % in the MAC. Let us down at least twice this year in crucial FT's, but he was not alone. Next year, if he keeps at it and puts on a bit more muscle, he could excel. But once again, sadly - we are already contemplating 'next year'

Carter shot under 40% from the field, which is not good for a forward.

Just finished watching the 2008 game against West Virginia and it was amazing what having a few players that can hit 3's and important shots make a difference (Brown, Raymond, Duncan, and Lavender). Also, it is amazing what happens when you have a true point guard, ball movement, and a coach that makes adjustments (not to mention getting the ball to the shooters).
