Anthony “Cat” Barber, a First-Team All-ACC standout for the NC State men’s basketball team, has announced his intention to enter the 2016 NBA Draft.
"I enjoyed my time at NC State and want to thank my coaches for giving me the opportunity,” said Barber. “Most importantly I want to thank my teammates and the fans. I want everyone to know I gave it 100 percent every night and will forever be a part of WPN."
A 6-2 junior guard from Newport News, Va., Barber led the ACC in scoring in 2015-16, averaging 23.5 points per game, along with 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.
"I appreciate Cat for his significant contributions over the last three years at NC State," head coach Mark Gottfried said. "I wish him the best, and we will help him any way we can as he pursues his dreams to play in the NBA and provide support to his family.
"Not only was his play terrific for our team, but he showed great development as a player and young man during his time in our program, and he can leave here in solid position to come back and earn his degree."
Barber led the ACC with eight 30-point games this season and had 1,507 points through three seasons with the Wolfpack.
