“I really thought he rose to the occasion and really had a solid season for us,” Pat Skaggs said.
Carter was selected to play for the Spiece Indy Heat AAU team this year. The team is competing at a EYBL tournament this weekend in Sacramento, Calif. The team is the only of its kind for its age group in Indiana and consists of eight of the top high school players in the state and one player from Michigan.
“The EYBL circuit is a big-time, elite high school basketball circuit,” Pat Skaggs said. “Obviously we’re very, very fortunate he was selected to play.”
Quentin Douglass, Caston
Douglass finished as Caston’s fourth all-time leading scorer with 1,219 career points.
This year the 6-foot point guard averaged 16.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.4 steals per game.
The Comets went 12-10 this year including 11-2 at home. They finished tied for third in the Midwest Conference and were runner-up at the Caston Shootout and county tournament. They swept Pioneer and had big wins over Central Noble, Kankakee Valley, Maconaquah, North White and Culver.
Caston coach J.R. Howell appreciated having a player like Douglass in his first year at the helm.
“He was a great player for us this year. He’s a good leader,” Howell said. “He accepted the new system we implemented this year defensively and offensively and led the team to the best of his abilities. It’s hard having a new coach your senior year and I thought he responded greatly and accepted his role. There were games where he did the bulk of our scoring and there were other games where he had a lot of assists and just did the things we needed to do to win. He did a good job of balancing between being the man and letting other people step up.
