Providence Grove senior Brandon Carter announced his decision to continue his basketball career at the collegiate level on Tuesday. Carter, the son of Tahesia and Ritchie Carter, will suit up for the Guilford College Quakers next season.

As a four-year varsity starter, he appeared in 96 games and finished his prep career with 757 points, 567 rebounds, 112 assists, 136 steals and 63 blocks while shooting 46% from the field. Carter had a stellar senior season for the Patriots where as one of the team captains he averaged 9.1 points per game and 5.6 rebounds per game while shooting 48% from the floor. He was one of the top three stat leaders for the Patriots this past season in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. He was a key part of the Patriots season and helped lead them to a 15-9 record and their first state playoff appearance in eight years.

First year Head Coach Ben Brickhouse had nothing, but praise for Carter and mentioned, “Brandon was an absolute joy to coach this season. If I could keep him around for another year just for his character, I would. I know he’s going to be great for Guilford and can’t wait to watch him develop.”

As a junior Carter was named the Providence Grove Varsity Men’s Basketball Offensive Player of the Year and an honorable mention for All-Conference and All-County. He also picked up All-Tournament honors at the 2017 Courier Tribune Christmas Invitational back in December. Carter was crucial part of the Patriots basketball team during his four season and his presence on the court will be missed next season. He left an impact on the court as a leader, but also as a leader off the court.

Carter is more than an athlete for the Patriots, he is also an exceptional student. He is a CTE completer in Health Science and a member of the National Technical Honor Society. He holds a 3.607 GPA and plans to major in Exercise and Sports Science while at Guilford with aspirations of one day becoming a physical therapist.

We would like to congratulate Brandon on this outstanding accomplishment and wish him the best of luck in the future!
