Ex-Auburn player drowns

 

Former Auburn basketball player Korvotney Barber has drowned, authorities in Panama City Beach, Fla., said Sunday. He was 26. Barber, who is from Manchester, Ga., went missing Saturday about 7 p.m. Barber averaged 10.9 points and 7.2 rebounds during his four-year Auburn career ending in 2008-09. Only the second McDonald’s All-American signed by the Tigers, Barber was the only SEC player to average a double-double in league play his senior season. Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs said those close to Barber “remember him as a caring father who deeply loved his children and his family.” – Associated Press
