After giving it all he had for the University of Maine men’s basketball team for the last four years, Troy Barnies now has his eyes set abroad.
The 6-foot 7-inch forward is looking to capitalize off a career senior year, where he led the Black Bears in points, rebounds and steals per game while tallying the most minutes on the team and the most free throws, and play professional basketball in Europe.
“I think it’s awesome,” Barnies said. “How many people can say they’re getting paid for doing what they dreamed about — what they love?”
Barnies finished the season averaging 14.3 points per game while pulling down almost eight rebounds a contest, earning him a spot on the America East First Team.
