Reitz sixth man Barnes headed to Lincoln Trail College

Mario Barnes, a senior guard who helped lead Reitz High School to a berth in the Class 4A state championship game, has committed to Lincoln Trail, a junior college in Robinson, Illinois. The Panthers’ sixth man most of his senior year, he averaged 7.2 points after averaging 10.5 as a sophomore and 10.2 as a junior. His career mark was 8.9.
Lincoln Trail should be a good fit for the speedy Barnes, who becomes the fifth Reitz senior to announce he will go on to play college basketball. Jaelan Sanford is headed for the University of Toledo. Nate Hansen to Vincennes U., and Alex Stein and Jacob Norman to the University of Southern Indiana.
Dru Smith, an Indiana South Junior All-Star, is getting looks from Indiana State, among others. If he continues to improve, junior guard Blake Ruckman could also go on to play college ball.
