John Anthony "Rabbit" Barnhill (born March 20, 1938 in Evansville, Indiana) is an American former professional basketball player.

A 6'1" guard, Barnhill attended Tennessee State University, where he won an NAIA championship in 1957. Barnhill's 1957 TSU Tigers were notable as the first all-black team to win a major American basketball tournament.[1] From 1962 to 1969, Barnhill played in the National Basketball Association as a member of the St. Louis Hawks, Detroit Pistons, Baltimore Bullets, and San Diego Rockets. He averaged 8.6 points per game in his NBA career. Barnhill later spent time in the rival American Basketball Association, mainly as a member of the Indiana Pacers.[2] Additionally, Barnhill was selected in three separate NBA expansion drafts in three consecutive years, 1966 (Chicago Bulls), 1967 (San Diego Rockets), and 1968 (Phoenix Suns).
