Troy Barnies addresses the crowd gathered Saturday for the surprise renaming of a basketball court in his honor at The Gully (Union Street Park) in Auburn. Barnies, an Edward Little alumnus, plays professional basketball in Eastern Europe. Every year, he returns to the local Auburn courts and runs a “Summer Slam” Basketball Clinic through the Auburn Recreation Department. The dedication was kept secret from Barnies until the unveiling.
