College of Charleston junior guard Canyon Barry is out for the remainder of the men’s basketball season after undergoing surgery to correct a shoulder injury.
The news comes as Barry enjoys a breakout season where he leads the Colonial Athletic Association in scoring with an average of 19.7 points per game.
Barry injured his shoulder earlier this month against The College of William & Mary.
The youngest son of NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry, Canyon shoots underhanded from the free throw line just like his father did. Canyon Barry sunk 60 of 71 free throws this season, an accuracy of 84.5 percent,. Barry also recorded seven 20+ point outings, knocking down a career-high-tying 31 points at archrival Davidson on Nov. 21, 2015.
A double major in physics and computer science at The College, the College of Charleston Honors College student ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation in scoring with 11 double-figure scoring games in 13 games started. Barry was also named CAA Player of the Week on three occasions and has tabulated 893 career points to date.
“Canyon has really worked hard to become a great player at this level,” said College of Charleston men’s basketball coach Earl Grant. “We are very confident that our athletic training staff will help him recover and get back to 100 percent in a timely manner.”
