Anthony Barber, better known as 'Cat', has gone from NBA Draft afterthought, to one of the fastest rising prospects in the country. The 6'2 junior from Newport News, Virginia has been on a tear this season and is turning the heads of scouts each time he steps foot on the floor. He's the leading scorer in the ACC, to this point, at 23.4 points per game, ahead of Duke's Grayson Allen by over three points per game, and seventh in the country.
