Carter to transfer from 'U' to be closer to ailing sister

The University of Minnesota announced Wednesday that forward Paul Carter will transfer for his senior season. The 6-foot-8 Carter wants to be closer to his family because his younger sister, Bria, is fighting bone cancer near Chicago.

Carter shaved his head in her honor this season, and his teammates did the same before their win over 14th-ranked Wisconsin on Feb. 18.

Last season, he played in all 35 games and averaged 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.
