If you have yet to watch Dwill play, I recommend you check him out on tv. The game will be on CBS and streamed legally on the cbs website.
As for all the people hyping up Barnes today... I dont see how his performance today really did much for his stock.
He didn't show anything new to his game. He scored points by taking open shots for the most part. He scored on a fumbled allyoop down low, and had a nice play near the end of regulation where he took two steps in and dropped back for a 3.
Players at UNC play how Roy Williams wants them to. It's possible Barnes has more to his game than what he is showing, but he is playing a position that is effective with UNC's system (drive-pass to post- kick to an open Barnes).
Correction: Barnes scored 40 points by taking mostly open shots, and drilling clutch 3's in the dying minutes of the game, and in overtime. He also iced the game by hitting his free throws when Clemson had to foul to stay alive at the end.
Not only that, but he had 8 rebounds (4 offensive), and played stellar defense, including showing he can defend quicker, smaller guards like Andre Young when Young was giving Marshall fits and blowing by him at will.
Barnes had the game of his NCAA career, carrying his team to the ACC finals, and you don't think that did anything for his stock? I think he's easily back in the conversation for a top 6 or 7 pick, which is a huge step up from where he fell on a lot of people's mocks.
