(via CIS)“We’re pleased that the CIS coaches have recognized once again what we at Lakehead have known for five seasons - that Greg Carter is the elite defensive player in the country,” said Lakehead head coach Scott Morrison. “Many players have the ability to change a game with a big defensive play but few, if any in recent memory, have the impact on an opponent’s offensive game plan that Greg does on a weekly basis. Greg has been a hard worker, a leader and a winner at every level he has played and it is nice to see his CIS career draw to a close with this outstanding honour being bestowed a second time.”
The CIS announced the All-Canadians and major award winners for the 2012-13 men's basketball season this morning. Repeating as CIS Defensive Player of the Year is senior point guard, Greg Carter. A full list of award winners follows below.
Carter, who has been honoured each of the past four years at the OUA West level, becomes only the second multiple winner of the CIS defensive MVP award since its inception in 2005.
The 5-foot-10 point guard was the anchor of a defensive unit that ranked sixth in the country in points allowed per game (68.5) and fifth in opponents’ field goal percentage (38.3). The business administration student finished second in the OUA in steals (2.1 per contest) and showcased his exceptional all-around game by also contributing 9.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per contest.
A native of Ottawa, the four-year co-captain led the Thunderwolves to second place in the OUA West standings with a 14-7 record.
