Player Summary

Carson Cunningham wanted to come to Purdue last year but was unable due to the verbal commitment of fellow point prospect Mosi Barnes. Since Indiana University showed little interest, he went west to Oregon State University and joined a recruiting class that according to Beaver Coach Eddie Payne was the "Michigan Fab Five minus a power forward". Cunningham would go on to not only co-lead the Beavers in scoring but also lead the team in assists. In a conference full of the nations top point guards Cunningham was named to the PAC10 All-Freshman team. A stat destined to make him a favorite in the eyes of Purdue was his 1.1:1 assist-to-turnover ratio. Keady will stress a 2:1 ratio at Purdue, a mark only approached by center Brad Miller. Purdue's point play suffered most of the season with more turnovers than assists, but Alan Eldridge eventually ended up with a 1.1:1 ratio. Cunningham is a former Indiana All-Star and has played on the same AAU squad with all the Purdue freshmen. His transfer to Purdue will mark only the fourth transfer Coach Keady has accepted at Purdue.

11-3-97...Follow this link to a good story on Cunningham from the Indianapolis Star. 10-19-97...A redshirt and a transfer places #1 and #2 in the 3-point shooting contest at Mackey Magic on Friday. Cunningham finished with 11 threes, four short of redshirt freshman B.J. Carretta's winning score. Cunningham played on the Mackey Arena floor in front of a crowd for the second time in recent years. He was in attendance for the Spiece/Mackey AAU challenge in June of 1996, where he performed on the same squad as then Purdue recruits Mike Robinson, Mosi Barnes, Jaraan Cornell, Gary and Greg McQuay. In Mackey on Friday, Cunningham hit from the perimeter using either hand, and showed some of the crisp passing and slashing moves that brought him an All-PAC10 freshman team award last year at Oregon State. 9-11-97...Carson Cunningham has completed his transfer to Purdue University, and has enrolled in classes at the West Lafayette campus. Cunningham will join the team next year after sitting out for a year due to NCAA transfer rules. 4-25-97...Carson Cunningham has officially announced that he will transfer to Purdue after a standout freshman season at Oregon State University. "I'm looking forward to the challenge of playing at Purdue," Carson said. "I decided to get back to the area and play closer to my family. I wanted a chance to win a title." Carson called it a "hard call" to decide to leave Oregon State. "It's probably one of the bigger decisions I'll probably have to make in my life," added Cunningham. "I think everything will work out OK. It's not a reflection on Oregon State."
