NC State signee Anthony Barber broke former Waker Forest standout Tony Rutland's Peninsula District scoring record in Hampton's 62-40 win over Menchville on Tuesday night.
Daily Press: Barber Breaks Scoring Record In Win
"On what everyone knew would be his record-breaking night, Hampton's Anthony Barber was in a groove with 11 points early in the second quarter. At that rate, Tony Rutland's Peninsula District scoring mark would be history by halftime.
"Then came Barber's third foul, which forced him to the bench for the final 5:35 of the first half. His rhythm disappeared, and the record was still Rutland's going into the final eight minutes.
"Barber didn't rediscover his stroke, but he ended up with more than enough for the record. Barber's 20 points move his career total to 1,981, five more than he needed, and the second-seeded Crabbers handled No. 7 Menchville 62-40 in Tuesday's PD quarterfinals."
