He added that he knew Barnes as an athletic and competitive power forward who played “with effort and energy, rebounding even though he was undersized.”
“[He was] just a good person and when anybody this young passes away, it’s a tragedy,” Clatchey said.

Police said Barnes was attempting to cross the street around 11:10 p.m. when a Kia Forte struck him while traveling south on the roadway.
Barnes was then struck by a sedan police said is believed to be “lighter in color.”
While the driver of the Forte stopped and remained at the scene, police said the other vehicle drove away following the crash.
