The Atlanta Dream recently announced the team has signed Sydney Carter to a training camp contract.
Carter, a 5-6 guard, was a standout at Texas A&M, helping the Aggies win the 2011 NCAA National Championship while being named the Most Oustanding Player at the Dallas Regionals that season. A three-time co-captain for Texas A&M, Carter was twice named to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team.
Carter averaged 11.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a senior, earning All-Big 12 Second Team honors. She was honorable mention All-Big 12 as both a junior and sophomore, and was a member of the Big 12 All-Freshman Team. She most recently played in one game as a rookie with the Chicago Sky in 2012.
"Sydney is an excellent ball-handler and scorer," said Dream Head Coach and General Manager Fred Williams. "Her speed and quickness enable her to get to the rim, score or pass. She will be a good addition to our squad."
The two-time Eastern Conference Champion Atlanta Dream will tip off its sixth season in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) on May 25 at Philips Arena.
