Cards among favorites for Caracter

Derrick Caracter and his New York Panthers won easily, 88-26, in their opening round game of the Tournament of Champions on Friday night.

Caracter usually is efficient around the basket and out to mid-range, but the shots didn't fall in this game, as he totaled 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting to go with 8 rebounds and 3 blocks.

As far as his recruitment, Caracter said he is now down to four schools -- Memphis, Virginia, Louisville and Villanova.

"They are the coaches I have the best vibes with," he said postgame. "Those most likely are my four final schools."

And while the NBA talk will follow him over the next year, for now the coaches involved are just talking about college.

"They come in and visit my school, sit down and talk about the things they have to offer me when I go to school," Caracter said.
