BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Former Florida Tech Men’s Basketball standout, Chris Carter, has been named the 2 Basketball Bundesliga Player of the Month for March.
His outstanding month has helped lead his Niners Chemnitz club to the No.3 seed in the German Pro A Playoffs.
Chris and his Niners teammates have begun the National Championship Playoffs well and lead the No.6 Trier Gladiators two games to one in the best of five playoff series.
Game 4 will take place Saturday night on the road in Trier, Germany where Niners Chemnitz hope to close out the quarterfinal series and advance to the Pro A semifinals next week.
Chris Carter has twice already this season been named the Eurobasket.com Player of the Week for the German Pro A league.
“Chris is having an amazing season at a very high level of professional basketball in Europe,” stated Panther head coach Billy Mims. “I am so proud of Chris and how he is representing himself and our program over there.
“He is an outstanding ambassador for Florida Tech both on the court and in the community.”
“After playing his first season of pro basketball for Bippa Odessa in the Ukraine where he put up numbers to be the Import Player of the Year, and now having another stellar campaign in his second pro season in Germany, Chris is getting the opportunity to see the world through the game of basketball.” Mims also added,
“The success that Chris is enjoying as a European professional shows the high quality of talent that we have at Florida Tech and is another example of just how good the level of play in the Sunshine State Conference is.”
