Rachel Barnes is NJCAA Player of the Week

KSCB News - February 19, 2010 12:00 am

Seward County Lady Saints forward Rachel Barnes has been

named the NJCAA National Player of the Week as well as Jayhawk

Conference Player of the Week after putting together one of the finer

weeks of basketball in school history. On Wednesday against Pratt the

sophomore from Windsor, Connecticut scored a career high 34 points and

grabbed 7 rebounds, with 6 steals in the Lady Saints 99-69 win over the

Beavers. Barnes found her way to the charity stripe 17 times, 2 short

of the school record and also banged in 4 three pointers in the contest.

On Saturday night in a must win road matchup for Seward at #20 Cloud

County Barnes saved her best for last. She scored just 5 first half

points as the Lady Saints clinged to a four point halftime lead but

followed that up with one of the most memorable halves by any Seward

basketball player in memory. Barnes scored 24 2nd half points to finish

with 29 as well as 9 rebounds as Seward blew past the T-Birds to take

the inside track to the Jayhawk West title. For the week Barnes

averaged 31.5 points and 11 rebounds to help push her Lady Saints to

25-2 on the season. Barnes and her Seward teammates will take on Dodge

City Saturday night for “Think Pink” and Homecoming nights in the

Greenhouse at 6:00.
