— Former Appalachian State basketball guard Omar Carter is in a medically induced coma after suffering a heart attack at a summer pro-am game in Charlotte Tuesday night.

According to Carter’s agent, the 25-year-old Charlotte native “is doing better” after collapsing during a game Tuesday.

Carter was the Big South Freshman of the Year while at Charleston Southern before transferring to Appalachian State. With the Mountaineers, Carter was an All-Southern Conference performer and averaged 16.3 points per game as a junior. He scored 21 points against North Carolina during his senior year (2011-12).

Carter most recently played for Limeira in Brazil where he averaged 11.8 points per game in 30 games last season.

    It's encouraging to read that he is improving. I hope the doctors can find the root cause of his heart attack. I hope he has a full and complete recovery.
