&uot;This was practice for me,&uot; said Carson, who uses the YMCA league to sharpen his skills for the Lakeland High School junior varsity team. &uot;There’s a lot more talent at Lakeland.&uot;

He may need the practice; a 5’4&uot;, Carson is one of the shortest Cavaliers. &uot;I’m used to that!&uot; he said of his height. &uot;I’ve been playing against taller people for my whole life!&uot;
