Real Madrid announced Jaycee Carroll
Jaycee Don Carroll (16/04/1983, Laramie, WY, USA) has been signed to strengthen Real Madrid's game on the three-point line. The 188 cm tall shooting guard was the ACB's top scorer in the 2009/10 and 2010/11 campaigns.
Carroll scores 19 points on average per game and made the ACB's Ideal Five in the shooting guard position last season. He scores 42% of his three-pointer attempts and 53% of his two-pointer shots, partly thanks to a powerful jump that allows him to overtake markers. The player is also solid under the iron and pulls down a considerable number of rebounds.
Carroll is an excellent shot and even managed to score 35 points in one ACB League game against DKV Joventut. During his senior high school year in Wyoming he averaged 39.4 points per game. He scored 22.4 points per clash in his four years at Utah State University, becoming its all time leading scorer and establishing the state's three-point efficiency record at 45.2.
He followed a stint in the NBA Summer League with a move to Europe, where he played for Italian LEGA side Teramo Basket in the 2008/09 campaign, scoring 15.9 points per game. Gran Canaria signed him the following year and he soon became a natural leader on the Spanish side.
Carroll will now join forces with Sergio Llull, Carlos Suarez and others to strengthen Real Madrid's game outside the three-point line.
