||Baldwyn's Barber headed north for college basketball
BALDWYN, Miss. — Baldwyn High School basketball's Chet Barber has signed with Riverland Community College of Minnesota.
Barber, who's 6'5", averaged 11 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks last season with the Bearcats, who finished 29-2.
Baldwyn made the MHSAA Tournament each year Barber was on the squad, including 2013, when the Bearcats won the Class 2A state championship.
Riverland is located in Austin, Minn., roughly two hours from Minneapolis.
"They saw some footage online, and e-mailed my mom," Barber said. "And from then on, we continued talking throughout the year, and I really couldn't get a chance to go up there because of season play here, but I was ready and open whenever we could go up there to visit."
