ANALYSIS: Carney was a major reason Memphis came within one victory of their first trip to the Final Four since 1985. He led the team in scoring, averaging 17.2 points per game, after averaging 16 per game his junior year. Carney's pogo-stick like jumping ability makes him one of the most coveted athletes in the draft and a potential lottery pick. Everyone always knew Carney could jump out of the gym, but his outside shot was a big question mark. Carney improved his outside game and his draft status by making a career-high 102 three-pointers his senior season and increasing his three-point shooting percentage to 39 percent. With his long arms and lean frame, he is able to elevate quite easily over defenders for his shot. Carney's long frame and quickness also make him an effective defender with a nose for the ball in the passing lanes, as he averaged 1.3 steals per game as a senior. Carney's 2006 NCAA Tournament performance demonstrated the inconsistency that plagued his college career at times. In games against Oral Roberts and Bradley, he shot a combined 14 of 26 from the floor, scoring 42 points and recording four steals. But Carney struggled mightily in a 50-45 loss to eventual runner-up UCLA, shooting 2-for-12 from the floor, and at times he seemed to prove his doubters correct that he can not step up in big games. He also shot 3-of-10 against Bucknell in the second round. To become a star at the next level, Carney has to improve his ball-handling and shot selection and not rely solely on his immense athleticism. Although there are questions about Carney's mental toughness, lean frame and his jumper, his overall athletic prowess should ensure a top-15 selection on draft night.
