Billy Baron, Canisius, Jr., G, 6-2, 195, East Greenwich, R.I./Rhode Island

Baron averaged 17.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 6.0 assists last week in two MAAC games as the Golden Griffins moved to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in league play, the team's first 2-0 start in conference action since 1997-98. Baron scored 19 points and had five rebounds in the Griffs' win at Fairfield Dec. 7, a win that snapped the program's nine-game losing streak to the Stags and he followed that with his first career double-double when he scored 16 points to go with a career-high 11 assists at Marist. For the week, Baron shot 50 percent from the field, 50 percent from 3-point land and 72.7 percent from the free-throw line. Baron's efforts have helped Canisius off to its first 6-1 start since 1973-74.
