I'm catching a few minutes of the Kentucky game during my lunch break and just now discovering that McKenzie Calvert—who started at USC, then played a year at Kansas (which ended under troubling circumstances), and then made a short-lived stop at Texas Tech—has resurfaced at Morehead State.

The Official Site of Morehead State University Athletics

She's listed as a grad student on Morehead's roster, but I believe she's a junior in terms of eligibility.

Chennedy Carter sitting out today for Texas A&M. In related news, Lamar leads Texas A&M 39-35 at halftime.

A&M still down to Lamar 53-45 in the 3rd Qtr. So far this season, Lamar has wins over Louisiana, McMurry, Louisiana College and Le Tourneau. A win over A&M would be quite the resume builder.

Somehow A&M will figure out a way to avoid this embarrassment.

Not the first time Chennedy Carter has been benched due to team violations. Must be a piece of work. Costed them a really good 18-19 team.

Or not. Lamar over A&M 74-68.

It's a wrap. Texas A&M loses to Lamar 74-68.
Will be interesting to see how much the pollsters drop A&M for this loss, considering Carter missed the game.

A&M next plays at Houston on Dec. 6, a game that will be shown on ESPN2.

So Carter comes in and instantly grabs a huge spotlight and a huge FGA total.

Williams and Howard transfer despite Texas A&M looking well-positioned to be a top team this year.

Carter gets herself suspended and with a weakened supporting cast A&M is too thin to defeat Lamar.

Correlation does not imply causation and I don't know what Chennedy Carter is like as a person. But from the outside, it certainly makes you wonder...as talented as she is, is it wise to build your team around her?

This is a shocker for me, even with Carter sitting. MSU played Lamar earlier this year and won by 51.

I have no information on the Howard and Williams transfers, but it certainly could be a major situation with Carter. She really hurt her team today.

Lamar does have a very impressive guard in Barrs. She gave the quick State guards plenty of trouble early. From their website...

Named Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year for an unprecedented third straight season … First-team All-Southland Conference … Led nation with 191 steals, equaling the NCAA single-season record ... Averaged 6.37 steals per game to lead the nation ... Ended the season with 456 career steals, a Southland Conference record ... Averaged 12.1 ppg overall and 12.0 ppg in conference play ... Led Southland Conference in assists (199), assists per game (6.6), steals (191), steals per game (6.37) and assist/turnover ratio (2.2) ... Set school record with four triple-doubles ... Had nine double-doubles ...First-team selection on Southland Conference All-Academic Team.

Thanks for sharing...just looked her up. She has a shot to break the all time record for steals if she slightly ups her season rate. She's up to 492 (career record is 624) and she should have at least 23-24 more games to play. She'd need to average 5.5/game if they play 24 games, or 4.9 if they play 27.

Glad you were interested. In the postgame presser Vic was effusive in his praise for her. Said she had a great chance to set the career NCAA record for steals. Her numbers will surely go up in conference play. Incredible win for that school shouldn't be overlooked.
