Harrison Barnes scores 19 in North Carolina win at Puerto Rico Shootout

Posted:

SAN JUAN, PR(KWWL)-- Freshman Harrison Barnes from Ames, Iowa scored 19 points in No. 8 North Carolina's 107-63 win over Hofstra on Thursday in the opening round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Barnes had what would be a career game for most players in the first half. He made all four 3-point attempts and scored all his points to help the Tar Heels (2-0) storm out to a 25-point lead. With every sweet shot, Barnes is making coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heels forget all about last year's miserable 17-loss season.

Barnes had plenty of help in the second half, as North Carolina swatted shots, alley-ooped, and pressured Hofstra all over the court. Earlier this month Barnes became the first freshman named to the Associated Press preseason College Basketball All American first team.

The Tar Heels will next play the winner of the Minnesota-Western Kentucky game in the eight-team tournament that finishes Sunday.
