Career Stats and Game-by-GameGet Acrobat Reader

2009-10 Season

• A 10-game starter in his junior season for the Bulldogs
• Scored in double figures once, in Georgia's SEC win at home against Alabama (10 pts.). Rebounded for double digits once as well, in the season opener vs. New Orleans.
• One of three Bulldog regulars to shoot over 50 percent from the field.
• Had four points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes in Georgia's SEC Tournament win over Arkansas.
• Played a key role in Georgia's late-season, comeback win over Alabama. Scored six of his 10 points in the second half, after the Bulldogs had fallen behind by double digits.

2008-09 Season

• Given his injury-plagued freshman year, Barnes progressed as much as any player in the Georgia program as a sophomore.
• Was rock-solid in two of the Bulldogs' toughest games of the season: 7 pts., 10 rebs. in 22 minutes @Western Ky...11 pts in 16 min. vs. Va. Tech.
• His 10 boards at WKU are his career best.
• Only other double-figure scoring game was a 10-point effort in regular-season finale vs. South Carolina. Also had eight boards against the Gamecocks.

2007-08 Season
• Promising freshman season was cut short by a knee injury in the Feb. 16 game vs. Tennessee.
• Suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee in that game. Was healthy and available by the NCAA Tournament but was withheld from competition.
• Had become an important reserve in Georgia's frontcourt before his injury. Showed in his limited court time that he was perhaps the Bulldogs' best offensive rebounder.
• Recorded a double-double in his first collegiate game, with 14 points (all in the 2nd half) and 10 rebounds vs. Jax State.
• Played all the significant minutes in Georgia's win vs. Elon.
• Season-high of nine rebounds came in just 16 minutes Jan. 26 at Tennessee.
