LYNDON CENTER -- Lyndon State College men's basketball coach Joe Krupinski announced Thursday that Buena Regional High School's Trayvond Barbary (Minotola, N.J.) has committed to the school as a member of the Class of 2017 and will join the Hornet program in the fall.
Lyndon State competes in the NCAA Division III's 10-team North Atlantic Conference.
Barbary, a 6-foot-5 forward, averaged a double-double this season for the Chiefs (18.9 points and 10.0 rebounds per game), and recorded his 1,000th career point against Millville High School. For his career, Barbary, a three-year starter for Buena, tallied an impressive 1,153 career points.
"We are excited to add someone of Trayvond's ability and character to our basketball family" said Krupinski, who completed his fifth season at the helm of the Hornet program this winter. "He is a very active and athletic forward who we feel will fit in well with our style of play. He was an extremely productive player in high school and we look for him to have the opportunity to make the same type of impact at Lyndon State."
"I look forward to pursuing my degree in Criminal Justice and continuing my basketball career at Lyndon State College" said Barbary, who also competed in both football and track for Buena this school year.
A member of the Daily Journal All-Star Team this past season, Barbary was also an Honorable Mention area selection by the Press of Atlantic City and was selected to participate in the Cape/Atlantic League All-Star game. Barbary will be joining a Lyndon squad that has appeared in the past three NAC postseason tournaments, reaching the championship game in 2011.
The 2012-13 edition of the Hornets finished the season with an 11-7 conference record and registered a 12-14 record overall. Lyndon State routinely plays one of the most challenging non-conference schedules in the Northeast Region.
