Lamont Barnes

Allsport
Position: Power Forward

Conference: Atlantic Ten
Height: 6'10"
Weight: 240
Age: 21
Birthdate: 09/04/78
High School: University Heights, Hopkinsville, Ky.

Barnes has an interesting combination of skills that could make him attractive to an NBA team. For his size, Barnes can move around the floor. His mobility makes him a good shot-blocker, so defense is a big part of his game. But not the only part. Barnes has shooting range to 15 feet, and he likes to face the basket to score. With his good hands, he's also effective under the basket. In his senior season, playing for a strong team, Barnes wasn't called upon to provide quite as much as he had in the past. Barnes stood out by providing leadership to go with his solid game.
