Greg Carter is the CIS defensive player of the year for the second straight season.

The fifth-year Lakehead Thunderwolves guard, the four-time defending OUA defensive player of the year, learned of the honour Wednesday morning as the team left for his hometown Ottawa, two days ahead of their opener at CIS nationals.

The 5-foot-10 Carter helped the Wolves keep opposition offences to 68.5 points a night, the sixth-best mark in the nation. He’s only the second multiple winner of the trophy since it was introduced in 2005.

Carter, whose LU career comes to an end in the nation’s capital, was second in the OUA in steals, with 2.1 a game, adding nine points, 4.3 rebounds and four assists a night.

“We’re pleased that the CIS coaches have recognized once again what we at Lakehead have known for five seasons -- that Greg Carter is the elite defensive player in the country,” said Lakehead head coach Scott Morrison in a release issued by the CIS.

“Many players have the ability to change a game with a big defensive play but few, if any in recent memory, have the impact on an opponent’s offensive game plan that Greg does on a weekly basis. Greg has been a hard worker, a leader and a winner at every level he has played and it is nice to see his CIS career draw to a close with this outstanding honour being bestowed a second time.”
