Kentucky’s second All-American. Maybe the lowest-scoring All-American in college basketball history. Scored only 29 points in 18 games during the 1925-26 campaign, with a single-game high of five. Earned his All-America status because of his great prowess as a defensive player. Tall for the time, strong and rugged, Carey was a “back guard,” a player stationed near the opponent’s basket whose expressed purpose was the keep the enemy from scoring. Carey was captain of the 1925-26 club, which finished with a 15-3 record, that lost the Southern Conference Tournament championship 31-26 to Mississippi A&M (later to become Mississippi State). Came to Kentucky after leading Lexington Senior High School to state and national championships in 1922. Carey apparently left basketball after 1926, and was a contractor in Lexington when he died in 1961 at the age of 56.
