HIGH POINT, N.C. – Thanks to this year's success, four players from the Barton men's basketball team – senior forward Bobby Stenborg (Garner, N.C.), sophomore guard Jake Kakar (Boston, Mass.), sophomore forward Isaiah Reddish (Durham, N.C.) and junior guard Michael Boykin (Clinton, N.C.) – all earned 2018-19 All-Conference Carolinas honors.

Stenborg and Kakar were named to the 2018-19 All-Conference Carolinas Second Team while Reddish and Boykin were voted on to the all-league third team.

Stenborg ranks second on the team in scoring (13.7 ppg) and rebounding (6.0 rpg) this season and garnered all-league accolades for the second straight year while Kakar leads the team in scoring (14.6 ppg) and his 86 three-pointers is a new school single-season record. 

Boykin – who crossed the 1,000-point mark for his career this season – also averages 13.7 points per contest and his 101 assists rank second on the squad.  Boykin was the league freshman of the year two seasons ago as well.  Meanwhile, Reddish averages 12.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game but has come on strong of late.  During the current eight-game winning streak, Reddish has averaged 20.1 points per contest.

Barton (22-7), the third seed in the 2019 Conference Carolinas Championship, will take on second-seeded Belmont Abbey (22-7) in the semifinals later today at 4:00 p.m., at Williamson Arena in Franklin Springs, Ga.
