According to a tweet from the official WVU basketball Twitter account, West Virginia’s Jevon Carter has passed a huge milestone in his career.
The senior is the first player in Power 5 history to record 1,500 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists, and 300 steals over his whole career.
With that last assist, Jevon Carter becomes the first Power 5 player and just the fifth player in NCAA history to record 1,500 points, 500 assists, 500 rebounds and 300 steals in a career. Congratulations Jevon! pic.twitter.com/yre1Z9ShIf

That’s a very significant number to hit, and there are dozens of incredible players that never hit that kind of mark across the board. Carter’s all-around performance and tough perimeter defense is one of the biggest reasons why West Virginia is one of top teams in the nation. The Mountaineers currently occupy No. 21 in the AP Top 25, and are second in the Big 12 Championship race.
Carter is averaging 16.8 points per game, 6.6 assists per game, and 3.0 steals per game. He’s scored 470 points so far in the 2017-2018 season, and is only 31 points away from eclipsing the 500 points he scored as a junior.
