He was part of a "package deal," cynics will argue, that brought the electrifying Dajuan Wagner (a high school chum of Barclay's) to Memphis.
He made news this season as much for his fists as his play, drilling teammate Sean Banks after the Texas game, then drawing a one-game suspension for throwing a punch in the first TCU contest.
I'd like to remember Barclay as the guy who overcame the stigma of being a partial academic qualifier and some nagging knee injuries, a player who had one of the most remarkable stat lines I've ever seen: 10 rebounds without a field-goal attempt in the win at South Florida in January.
