ATLANTA, GA -- Canisius’ Billy Baron has been named the Mid-Major Most Valuable Player for the 2012-13 season.

Baron, who helped Canisius improve from 1 MAAC win to 11, led the team in scoring with 17.2 points per game, and his 5.0 assists per game ranked first in the MAAC. He shot 43.9 percent from the field, 38.2 percent from 3-point range and 82.4 percent from the free-throw line and he was also good for 4.1 rebounds per contest. An All-MAAC First-Team honoree, the 6-foot-2 guard scored a total of 584 points, the most for a Canisius player in the last 28 years.

Baron ended the season ranked among the top-10 in the MAAC in seven different statistical categories, including scoring (third), assists (first), free-throw percentage (fifth), 3-point field goal percentage (eighth), 3-point field goals made per game (ninth), assists-to-turnover ratio (third) and minutes played (10th). A team captain in his first season at Canisius, Baron played in all 34 games and made 33 starts.

Canisius’ 20 wins in 2012-13 are the most for the team since 2000-01, and it marks the seventh 20-win campaign in school history. The Griffs won 11 league games for the first time since 1998-99.
