WACO, Texas -
Baylor signee Demond "Tweety" Carter of LaPlace, La., has been selected to the Parade 2006 All-America High School Boys Basketball Team announced Tuesday. The team will be published in the Parade Magazine insert in Sunday's newspapers.
The Parade All-American selection is Carter's third major national honor after having been named a McDonald's All-American and a Jordan All-American last month.
The 5-10, 170-pound guard finished his fantastic prep career at Reserve Christian School with 7,494 career points, more than any high school player ever. Carter will officially rank second in scoring on the National Federation of State High School Association's all-time record book because it will not include the points he scored during his seventh and eighth grade seasons on the varsity team.
Among his numerous accomplishments, Carter led RCS to four state championships, was a five-time Outstanding Player of the Year in Louisiana, was a five-time all-state selection, was a four-time state tournament MVP, was the 2005 National Christian School Athletic Association Player of the Year and the 2003 national high school freshman of the year (for all sports) by SuperPrep.com.
Earlier this month Carter led RCS to its fourth state championship and a 48-8 record. He scored 38 points in the 96-56 state championship win over Marion and was named the tournament MVP. Carter averaged 33 points as a senior in 2005-2006 and shattered the national high school 3-pointers made record, hitting 287 3-point field goals (old mark was 215). He scored a single-game high 74 points as a senior in a 114-71 win over East St. John's.
