PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say former Auburn basketball player Korvotney Barber has drowned.
Panama City Beach Cpl. Jason Gleason says a passerby found the 26-year-old's body Sunday at 3:49 p.m. between Boardwalk Beach Resort Condominiums and Top of the Gulf condos.
Gleason says Barber went missing Saturday about 7 p.m. Barber, who is from Manchester, Ga., averaged 10.9 points and 7.2 rebounds during his four-year Auburn career ending in 2008-09.
He was only the second McDonald's All-American signed by the Tigers.
Auburn coach Tony Barbee says, ``The Auburn basketball program is deeply saddened to lose one its great players in Korvotney `Vot' Barber.''
Athletic director Jay Jacobs says those who knew Barber remember him as a loving father.
