Harrison Barnes keeps hometown close to heart as draft nears

Monday, June 25, 2012

Harrison Barnes always kept a piece of Ames, Iowa, with him. Barnes was UNC's leading scorer with 17.1 points per game this season and is one of the top small forward prospects in the NBA draft, but he still considers himself just a kid from a small town. "I attribute so much of who I am and what I've become to (Iowa) just because it kept me very humble," Barnes said. (USA Today)
