Aquille Carr

Aquille Carr signs to play in the NBA D-League this season

Former Seton Hall commit Aquille Carr is back stateside, but college still is not his destination.

The YouTube sensation has signed a contract with the NBA Development League, and is eligible for the league’s draft next month, his agent Johnny Foster told Gino Pilato of D-League Digest.

“It was his decision to play in the D-League, and to develop in order to get ready for next year’s NBA draft,” Foster told Pilato on Tuesday.

The jump from the D-League to the NBA draft isn’t unheard of. After a junior season at Georgia Tech, filled with off the court incidents, Glen Rice Jr. elected to play in the D-League for a season. After averaging 29.0 points per game in the D-League finals for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, he was drafted No. 35 overall in this summer’s draft. Though the jump for the 5-foot-6 Carr looks to be a bit tougher than it did for the 6-foot-6 Rice.

Carr had originally committed to Seton Hall, but in March decided not to attend college. In June he was offered a contract in China by Tracy McGrady’s former team Qingdao Double Stars. Carr, McGrady and former NBA point guard Jason Williams participated in a Chinese tour in June.

There are 17 D-League franchises, and this is what fans could expect if their team drafts the Crimestopper:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) Brandon Sherrod scored 25 points — and set the Division I single-season record for consecutive field goals made — to help Yale beat Columbia 86-72 Friday and take over sole possession of first place in the Ivy League standings.

Justin Sears added 27 points for the Bulldogs (14-5, 5-0), who have won nine in a row, their longest win streak since closing the 1961-62 regular season with nine-straight wins.

Sherrod made his first five field-goal attempts, extending his streak of consecutive field goals made to 30 and breaking the Division I single-season record of 26 straight previously held by Eastern Michigan’s James Thompson and Bowling Green’s Torian Oglesby.

He hadn’t missed a field goal since January 16th.

Two foul shots by Sherrod sparked a 12-0 run by Yale that made it 72-58 with 3:40 left.

The Bulldogs made 14 of 16 free throws in the final three minutes to seal it.

Maodo Lo had 21 points and a career-high seven steals for Columbia (15-7, 4-1), which had its six-game win streak snapped.
