St. Andrew’s: Michael Carter-Williams Named NBA Rookie of the Year

Monday, May 05, 2014

 

Former St. Andrew’s (Barrington, Rhode Island) basketball star Michael Carter-Williams will be named NBA Rookie of the Year for his outstanding performance this season with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Michael Carter Williams at Syracuse

104 of the 124 voters gave Carter-Williams their 1st place vote, and he won by a wide margin over second place Victor Oladipo of the Orlando Magic.

Carter-Williams averaged 16.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.8 steals per game for the 76ers this season. He was the NBA’s Rookie of the Month 4 times after being selected with the 11th overall selection in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Carter-Williams was a star in the local high school basketball scene just a few years ago. He played his freshman season at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School in Massachusetts before transferring to St. Andrew’s for his final 3 seasons.

After graduating from St. Andrew’s in 2011, Carter-Williams played 2 seasons of college basketball at Syracuse before declaring for the draft.  GoLocal broke the news of Carter-Williams turning pro in February of 2013.

As a 6’6” tall point guard, Carter-Williams is a matchup nightmare in the NBA and he was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dismal season for a 76ers team that had the worst record in the NBA this season at 19-63.
