AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -Auburn forward Korvotney Barber will remain sidelined for the rest of the season with a broken hand, coach Jeff Lebo said Thursday.
Barber hasn't played since breaking his left hand 3 minutes into the Dec. 29 game against Towson. He was leading the nation in shooting, hitting 72 percent from the floor.
Barber was also averaging team-highs with 14.8 points and 7.3 rebounds through 10 games. Auburn is expected to apply for a medical redshirt, though the outing against Towson put Barber one game over the NCAA limit for granting one.
``Vot was having an outstanding season leading the nation in field goal percentage as well as having the best season of his career,'' Lebo said. ``His injury was very unfortunate. We expect Vot to make a full recovery from surgery but just not before this season is complete.''
