Jevon Carter Named Inaugural Naismith Defensive Player of the Year

The accolades continue to roll in for the Mountaineer senior guard. Jevon Carter named the inaugural Naismith Defensive Player of the Year. Naismith could not have chosen a more deserving player when they handed out this award for the first time. Carter has led “Press Virginia” for four years and his senior season was spectacular. Carter has also been named the NABC Defensive Player of the Year and is the two-time Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year to go along with being a four-time member of the Big 12 All-Defensive Team.

It’s a very well-deserved honor for the senior leader. He is the all-time leader in steals at West Virginia. He is also the only player in Power 5 conference history to get 1,500 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists and 300 steals.
