An A&M Aggies women’s basketball assistant responds to the accusations that came after she one day wore tight leather pants and high heels during a game.
Sydney Carter says that the criticism comes mainly because of the race and not because of what she wears. “People do not accept that a woman is growing in career and can be in a court,” she says. People take this as a threat.

It seems like club gear and you want to be taken seriously. One fan called the outfit ‘inappropriate period’ and stated she should get a fine / ticket whatever.
Others said high heels could damage the basketball court. But some supported her, saying she was free to wear whatever she wanted. ESPN reporter Terrika Foster-Brasby tweeted, “Sydney carter is a legend at Texas A&M University and she is doing her job as a coach. And, the last thing people had to worry about is her clothes – that is wonderful by the way.
Sydney has been a Texas A&M player for a very long time. In 2020 he started working as a coach. From 2018-to 2012 he played for Aggies where he was captain three times. in Chicago after being selected 27th in the overall WNBA draft to the Chicago sky.
