SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah State star Jaycee Carroll pushed off retiring from basketball for at least another season and re-signed with Real Madrid.

The 37-year-old guard re-signed with the Spanish basketball franchise for one season. He’s played for Real Madrid since 2011.

“Real Madrid C. F. and Jaycee Carroll have reached an agreement to extend the player’s contract, which remains linked to the club until the end of the 2020-2021 season,” the club said in a statement.

“I’m really happy and excited to extend my contract. The love the fans have shown me all these years is one of the main reasons for it. When I arrived to Europe I always dreamed of carving out a place at a big team and making it my home,” Carroll said. “I love playing for Real Madrid, there’s still a lot to play for and I want to win more trophies. I will give it my best shot.”

Prior to the season being halted by the coronavirus pandemic, Carroll averaged 10.7 points per game in Spanish ACB and 7.9 points per game in EuroLeague.

The former USU guard has played overseas since 2008.

His first stop came with Teramo from 2008-09. In 2009, Carroll joined Gran Canaria. In 2011, he joined Real Madrid.

During his time playing international basketball, Carroll has received the following honors:

  • Two-time EuroLeague champion (2015, 2018)
  • EuroCup Top Scorer (2011)
  • Three-time Spanish League champion (2013, 2015, 2016)
  • Two-time Spanish League Top Scorer (2010, 2011)
  • All-Spanish ACB League Team (2011)
  • FIBA Intercontinental Cup champion (2015)

Prior to his professional career, Carroll became the only player in Utah State history to earn back-to-back All-America honors. He also became USU’s all-time scoring leader and the second all-time leading college basketball scorer in the state of Utah during his final season in Logan.

In 2008, he was honored as the WAC Player of the Year.
