Barnes makes NBA Rookie First Team

OAKLAND, Calif. (KWWL) -

From the time he put on his first pair of basketball shoes, greatness was predicted for Ames native Harrison Barnes. That continued on Tuesday when he was named to the NBA rookie first team.

Barnes was chosen in the first round of the 2012 NBA draft by Golden State with the seventh overall pick.

Barnes helped the Warriors earn a playoff berth by averaging 9.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Barnes scored a career playoff high 26 points in a game four win Sunday night over San Antonio helping Golden State even that series at 2 games a piece.
