Barber sidelined due to hand injury
USF men’s basketball player Sam Barber will be sidelined for up to eight weeks with an injury to his right hand, men’s basketball trainer Nikki Curski confirmed Tuesday.
Neither Curski nor USF coach Robert McCullum would comment on the extent of the injury or how the injury occurred. Barber, a red-shirt freshman, appeared in five games last season for the Bulls, averaging 8.4 minutes, 3.2 points and 1.4 rebounds per game. He scored a career-high 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting against Nova Southeastern in his USF debut, and followed with a career-high six rebounds against Providence in his second game.
Barber, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard/forward out of Lake Worth High School, was part of the final recruiting class of former USF coach Seth Greenberg, who is entering his first season at Virginia Tech.
College basketball teams cannot officially begin practice until Oct. 18. The basketballs team’s first game is Nov. 21 when they host Florida Atlantic.
