NHR Top 100: #89 Will Barton, SG, Memphis

Number 89 – Will Barton, SG, Soph., Memphis

The familiar cliché of “the best thing about a freshman is he becomes a sophomore.” Welcome to the world of Will Barton.

He was the top scorer for the young Tigers last season and will have a bigger role this season. Having Adonis Thomas on the wing will calm things down on the wing for Barton but the fact of the matter is, he has to be the go-to guy for Josh Pastner this year. Barton has the ability. He has the swagger. He loves the big game situations.

Barton was inconsistent last year, at times, so a year into his college career should have him prepared. Barton has the tools to become one of the top all-around guards in the game this season. His shooting touch has to improve but with roles more clearly defined, Barton could emerge as one of the top sophomores in the nation.

2010-2011 STATS: 12.3 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.5 spg, 2.5 TO, 42.8% FG, 26.5% 3 pt

Go to No. 90
