App State head men’s basketball coach Dustin Kerns has announced the signing of Carvell Teasett (Baton Rouge, La. / Northwestern State) to the program.
Carvell Teasett | 6-1 | 180 | Baton Rouge, La. / Northwestern State
Teasett comes to the High Country following an impactful two-year stint at Northwestern State University. Before starting his collegiate career, he had a near-perfect four-year run of high school basketball. A graduate of Scotlandville High School, Teasett helped lead his team to four consecutive Division I state titles during his time. He helped the Hornets compile an 88-4 record over his last two seasons while also garnering all-state selection honors. He averaged a little under 20 points per game while chipping in with three rebounds and three assists. After signing to play college basketball at Northwestern State, he instantly became a threat on the floor. Teasett played in all 29 games as a true freshman, averaging just under 10 points per game to accompany a pair of rebounds and a pair of assists. He posted a season-high 25 points against Houston Baptist University and scored 16 points against No. 1 Gonzaga. Teasett tallied 10 double-digit scoring performances during his freshman year as he led the team with 43 made three-pointers. During his sophomore season, Teasett played in 23 games for the Demons, starting 21 of them. The dual-threat guard registered a trio of 20-point scoring efforts, including a career-high 27 points against Houston Baptist. He also put up a double-digit performance for the second consecutive season against the nation’s No. 1 team, this time scoring 18 points at Baylor University. He remained lethal from beyond the arc during his sophomore campaign, as he once again led the Demons with 61 long balls on the year. Kerns’ addition of Teasett to the squad gives the Mountaineers a combo guard that can score and assist while being a presence on the defensive end of the floor. Over the course of his collegiate career, Teasett has played in 52 games and scored 548 points. A 94-foot player, Teasett has dished out 138 assists while also recording 44 steals.
Kerns on Teasett: “We are thrilled to announce the addition of Carvell Teasett to the Mountaineer family. Carvell has a tremendous work ethic who is always trying to improve his game. He is a proven shooter who is also a great ball handler. His skill set makes for a great fit on the court. Carvell comes from a wonderful family and is the son of Kay Teasett. Mountaineer nation, please join us in welcoming Carvell to the App State Family!”
As Kerns continues to mold his roster for the upcoming season, App State looks to build off of their recent success from the past two seasons. The Mountaineers are fresh off their second consecutive year of playing in a national postseason tournament, one year removed from their Sun Belt Championship in 2021.
