NC State’s Barber voted ACC Player of the Week

For the second time this season, Anthony ‘Cat’ Barber has been voted ACC Men’s Basketball Player of the Week. The 6-2 junior guard earned the accolade after standout performances last week against High Point and Missouri.

Barber, the ACC’s leading scorer with 22.2 points per game, scored 26 points and hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer in last Wednesday’s home win over High Point. He then scored 33 points on 9-for-15 shooting from the floor and 13-for-15 shooting at the foul line in a road win Saturday at Missouri.

For the week, Barber averaged 29.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists while playing 39.5 minutes per game.
