Texas A&M women’s two-time All-Southeastern Conference guard Chennedy Carter resumed full-court, noncontact practice Wednesday and will be ready for next week's NCAA tournament, according to a source close to the program.

Carter had open reduction, internal fixation surgery on her right little finger on March 4 to repair two fractures she sustained in the Aggies’ regular season finale against Arkansas.

Carter’s rehab is on schedule, 10 days after the surgery, and she resumed shooting and dribbling earlier this week. She also had been taking part in conditioning drills.

The sophomore leads the SEC in scoring, averaging 22.5 points per game.

The 17th-ranked Aggies (24-7) are projected to be a No. 4 seed for the NCAA tournament, which will start March 22. The Aggies are expected to host first- and second-round games as a No. 4 seed by ESPN bracketologist Charlie Creme.
