Erie Times-News Breakout Girls Basketball Player of the Week: Danielle Barnes, North East

Danielle Barnes

North East girls basketball coach Terry Frontino could always count on quality minutes from 5-foot 6-inch junior guard/forward Danielle Barnes.

Whether it was to play for a starter in foul trouble or to get another player a breather, Barnes was a steady fill-in. Barnes averaged 2 points per game but her defensive intensity is what lifted the Grapepickers.
She played extended first-half minutes against McGuffey in the first round of the PIAA playoffs while two starters were in foul trouble. North East went on to win 59-49. With seven seniors graduating in a few months, Barnes will be counted on to be a leader next season.
