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

Baron averaged 19.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and a steal in two games last week as the Golden Griffins closed out their run in the Chevrolet Gotham Classic with games against Alcorn State and Detroit. In the win over Alcorn State, Canisius' sixth-straight home win dating back to last season, the 6-foot-2 guard scored 19 points and dished out five assists to go with four rebounds. In the team's loss to Detroit on the road Dec. 30, Baron scored a team-high 20 points while matching his career-high with eight boards. He was also credited with seven assists in the loss to the Titans, the 10th time this year he's recorded five or more assists in a game. For the week, he shot 40.7 percent from the floor, 38.5 percent from 3-point land and 85.7 percent from the free-throw line, highlighted by his 9-for-10 effort from the charity stripe in the win over Alcorn Dec. 27.
