In key games he hit numerous clutch shots and displayed excellent shot mechanics. Last season he was primarily a catch & shoot player. Carsten says,” Last season we had great players like DJ Harvey and Ryan Allen who were or key play-makers & got to the rim. I was utilized as a kick-out option for our spacing.”
6’3″ Ryan Allen was DeMatha’s PG who will play at Delaware and was awarded 2nd Team All DMV I-495 Team by us. DJ Harvey is a 6’6″ wing was rated # 46 in nation, f1rst Team All DMV I 495 Team who will play for Notre Dame.
This coming season Carsten will show more of his versatility for DeMatha and adds. “I will play the 2 & 3 for us this year and I can score on 3 levels.” Last night Carsten showed his ability to attack the rim and covert off the dribble. His outside shot looked very good and Carsten already looks stronger than in March. He adds’ ” I work out 6 t days a week and this summer I want to improve my ball handling and defense. For strength and conditioning I workout with Coach Tobe Stevens from DeMatha and my Trainer is Blair O’Donovan. Balir helps me with my explosiveness and overall basketball skills which I additionally work on with Coach Cromer from DeMatha. Some of my exercises for explosiveness include squats, calf work & box jump” Despite the fact Carsten missed 2 weeks with an ankle sprain he had some nice pop in his game tonight. -
