Season highlights: For a Regis Jesuit team that struggled out of the gate with six December losses, found its stride to win the Continental League championship and then suffer an upset loss in the second round of the Class 5A state playoffs, Carr was a constant for coach Ken Shaw’s Raiders. He averaged just 6.8 points per game as a junior, but blossomed into an often unstoppable scorer with a deadly shot and scored in double figures in all but the last game for Regis Jesuit, including a high of 34 points against Douglas County. Carr made multiple 3-pointers in nine games and also shot better than 80 percent at the free throw line, where he earned 129 attempts. One of less than a handful of Aurora players to average a double-double on the season, Carr also averaged 11.4 rebounds per contest and easily made the All-Continental League first team. Carr plays in the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
Carr vs. Aurora teams: vs. Overland (28 points, 12 rebounds); vs. Rangeview (13 points, 15 rebounds); vs. Smoky Hill (15 points, 6 rebounds); vs. Eaglecrest (18 points, 10 rebounds)
