NEW YORK - Columbia junior guard Brian Barbour was named to the Division I all-district second team, as chosen by members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Barbour is one of six Ivy League players selected to the first or second team in District 13, which was comprised of players from the Ivy League and the Patriot League. It is the third straight year that a Columbia player has earned all-district honors. Noruwa Agho was a second team all-district honoree in 2010 and 2011.

Barbour led the Ivy League in assists (5.6 assists per game) and was second in scoring (16.9 points per game) during league games. For the season, Barbour averaged 15.5 points and 4.3 assists in 30 games this season.

Barbour scored in double figures 24 times this season, topped 20 points 10 different times and established new career highs in points and assists in a game. A tremendous floor general, Barbour's assist to turnover ratio was 1.9 to 1. He also made 90.1 percent of his free throws, which led the Ivy League and currently ranks third in the nation.

Not only was Barbour one of the league's most efficient offensive players, he was an effective defender, often called upon to limit taller guards. Barbour finished second on the team in steals and even grabbed 2.8 rebounds per game in average of 35.6 minutes per game.
