SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - After sitting for much of the tail end of his freshman year and watching exclusively from the bench during the NCAA tournament last spring, Syracuse guard Michael Carter-Williams is off to a stellar start as a sophomore.
After four games, Carter-Williams leads the nation at 9.3 assists per game and is tied for second in steals. He is clearly the catalyst for the high-powered Orange.
Carter-Williams has 37 assists with 11 turnovers, 16 steals, and is averaging 10.3 points and 5.5 rebounds.
Syracuse (4-0) plays next at Arkansas (3-2) on Friday in the SEC/Big East Challenge.
Coach Jim Boeheim says Carter-Williams ``still has work to do, but he's playing well. He's getting the ball in the right places.''
