BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Former Canisius basketball star Billy Baron is taking his game overseas next year, signing with BC Lietuvos Rytas in Lithuania.

Baron, the MAAC Player of the Year, went undrafted in last month’s NBA Draft. He caught on with the Chicago Bulls for the NBA’s Summer League.

The point guard finished last season ranked fourth in the nation with 24.1 points per game. Baron led the Griffs to 41 wins during his two years on campus, the best two-year run for Canisius in nearly 20 years. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
