Chip off the Old Block

Shooting guard Bo Barnes, the son of seven-time World Champion Team Roping Header Jake Barnes, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for the University of Hawaii.

Bo Barnes averaged 17 points, seven rebounds and two steals a game last season while leading Westwind Prep International in Phoenix to a 30-3 record and a spot in the state 2A finals.

Before attending Westwind, the 6-foot-4 Barnes starred at Scottsdale (Ariz.) Christian, where he averaged 19 points a game and shot 55 percent from three-point range.

Barnes chose Hawaii over Iowa State and became the fifth recruit signed by first-year Rainbow Warriors coach Gib Arnold.
