Shumpert recorded the fourth triple-double in Georgia Tech history and 26th in ACC annals, when he had 22 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in the Yellow Jackets' 72-57 victory over Virginia Tech last Tuesday evening in Atlanta. The 6-5 Oak Park, Ill., junior also had seven steals in the win. Five days later, Shumpert had 12 points, three assists and three steals in a 74-63 loss to Maryland Sunday night.
At long last, the highly-touted freshman found his offensive groove scoring a season-high 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting in North Carolina's 84-64 win over N.C. State Saturday. Barnes had 12 first-half points, including 11 of the Tar Heels' first 13. Earlier in the week, Barnes had 13 points and two steals in a 74-71 win at Miami. He connected on the Tar Heels' last two field goals, including a game-winning three-pointer from the corner as the shot clock expired with 6.6 seconds remaining for the win.
