George Carter

George Carter graduated from Silver Creek High School where he was a basketball star, but he gained more success on the court at St. Bonaventure University. In each of his three seasons (1964-67) with the Bonnies, Carter scored over 400 points. In that span he had 849 rebounds in 68 games for an average of 12.4 per game which is fourth among all-time St. Bonaventure rebounders. He was team leader in 1966 with 285 and in 1967 with 305. Carter is also the Bonnies' 12th leading scorer with 1322 points for a 19.4 average and he was the captain of the team his senior year.

Carter was drafted by the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association, but was also drafted by the United States Army and served a two-year hitch.

After his service career, Carter began his pro basketball career with the Washington Capitals of the American Basketball Association for the 1969-70 season and was named to the league's all-star team. In 1970-71 he played with Julius Erving on the Virginia Squires. For the 1971-72 season, Carter played for the Pittsburgh Condors and Carolina Cougars. The 1972-73 season found him with the New York Nets. In 1973-74 he returned to Virginia and he finished his career in 1974-75 with the Memphis Sounds.
