Carter presents donation to Norma Mae Huggins Foundation

WVU Basketball

A former Mountaineer basketball star is giving back to WVU.

Jevon Carter presented a check for $27,500 to the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund during Monday’s game between West Virginia and Kansas State. Carter raised the funds through proceeds from his “Treadmill Mentality” t-shirts.

The donation comes after one of head coach Bob Huggins’ most successful fundraisers for cancer research: The annual Bob Huggins Fish Fry in February collected more than $700,000 for his mother’s cancer research foundation and other causes.

Carter made college hoops history at WVU by becoming the first Power 5 player to record 1,500 points, 500 rebounds, 500 assists and 300 steals in a career. In his rookie season with the Memphis Grizzlies, Carter has appeared in 25 games and averages more than 15 minutes per contest.

With the NBA All-Star Game now in the books, Carter and the Grizzlies return to action Friday against the Clippers.
