ATLANTA – Chennedy Carter was named to the 10-player All-American Team by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association on Thursday morning for the first time in her career.

The All-American becomes just the second player in program history to be named to the WBCA’s 10-player All-American Team. Danielle Adams earned A&M’s selection during the 2010-11 national championship season.

This is now the eighth separate All-American honor (WBCA – 3, AP – 3, USBWA – 2) for the Mansfield, Texas, native. This is the gold standard for the program, with the next closest players at five each (Danielle Adams, Courtney Walker).

This accolade will cap off Carter’s career as she announced that she would forgo her senior season and enter the 2020 WNBA Draft this past Sunday. Carter is expected to be drafted within the top-five picks of the first round. The draft will take place virtually on April 17 at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN.

The Aggie legend holds the A&M records in double-digit scoring streak (62), 20 point games (62) and 30 point games (12).  The three-time All-SEC first teamer is the second leading scorer in A&M history with 1,983 points.

Carter’s season was highlighted with a 37-point performance to knock off ranked Tennessee in Knoxville, Tenn. This is the most points scored by an Aggie in an SEC game in program history. She also set the collegiate record for points scored against the USA National Team, when she poured in 34 against all-time greats like Seimone Augustus, Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and many more.
