Erick Barkley Update

Remember his trip to Cameron?

When Erick Barkley came to Cameron, Coach K urged the Cameron Crazies to go easy, but Barkley didn't return the favor, leading St. John's to victory.

Remember Erick Barkley's visit to Duke? The St. John's star got in trouble with the NCAA and before his visit to Cameron, Coach K urged the Crazies not to make fun of him because his name had been unfairly tarnished. Coincidentally, St. John's won, as we recall, and there was a bit of grumbling about it.

Barkley's back in the news, and this time, he appears to be tarnishing his own name:

Barkley is coaching his son's little league team and had a conflict with a father of one of the other team's kids. So unless the video tape here is lying, he gave the other guy a pretty good beating. He's looking at a law suit, and a major hit to his reputation. The apparent victim declined to press charges.
