Barber averaged 26.3 points, 7.7 assists and 5.7 rebounds in three games last week, leading the Pack to a pair of victories. After leading NC State to a split in Brooklyn, Barber exploded for a career-high 37 points in a win over Winthrop on Friday night. He finished the night 19-for-22 at the free throw line and also added eight assists.
In two games in Brooklyn last week, the 6-2 junior point guard averaged 21.0 points, 7.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds.
