Carter averaged 13.0 points and 13.0 rebounds and 3.5 steals for the week, to go with her 2.0 assists as well. She also recorded one blocked shot (at Tarleton) on the week, as she helped MSU hold their opponents to 62.5 points a game and shooting 36.1 percent from the floor. She grabbed exactly one-third of MSU's rebounds during the two games.
Carter is joined by West Texas A&M forward Devin Griffin who was named the LSC Offensive Player of the Week by the conference office.
It's the fifth time Carter has claimed the defensive award and she won the offensive award the first week of the season.
