Not sure why Barone didn't start more than the nine games, although he did play 26 minutes per game. The 6-10 sophomore was named to the WAC honorable mention team after averaging 10.5 ppg and 6 rpg.
Barone led the WAC in field goal percentage, shooting 61 percent from the floor. He shot 65 percent in the WAC and was 78 percent from the foul line. In the games I watched Barone in person, I didn't think anyone in the WAC could guard him in the post. Idaho is good at sharing the ball so a lot of different guys took shots and a good outside threat in Ledbetter. But now Barone is the best player on the team and I would like to see him on the court a little more this year.
