Utah State athletic director Scott Barnes was named Wednesday to be the NCAA men's basketball committee chairman for the 2014-15 season. Barnes, who has been a committee member since 2010, will serve as vice chairman this season while Wake Forest's Ron Wellman serves as committee chairman. "It is certainly an honor to have been chosen by my peers to chair this prestigious committee," Barnes said in a statement. "When I think of the colleagues who have served in this capacity, both prior to and during my tenure, I am truly humbled to have this opportunity." Barnes has been the athletic director at Utah State since April 2008. On July 1, Utah State leaves the WAC and becomes a member of the Mountain West.
