The N&O has a pretty great behind the scenes look at Cat Barber. The junior PG has long been the topic of conversation for NC State fans. He’s not your pototypical vocal leader, but he’s won over his teammates with authenticity and honesty instilled him by his mother.

As Pam Barber is fond of saying, “Scared money don’t make no money.” She has been known to yell that at Cat during N.C. State games. It’s an old neighborhood colloquialism. You can’t win money in cards or a dice game if you’re scared to bet and you can’t be good on the basketball court if you’re afraid.

Quotes like this, and a look at his home town make this one of the first really open pieces about Barber. Make sure you check it out.
