JIM BARRON
. . . sophomore standout
EI

I

By AL EISENBERG
One of the most outstanding
sophomores in the star-studded
Western Conference is the Uni-
versity of Michigan's flashy guard,
Jim Barron.
Barron, a product of Fenwick
High School in Chicago, is cur-
rently leading the Wolverine
squad with an average of 17.5
points per game. The Chicagoan's
262 points also places him among
the top ten scorers in the Big Ten.
THE SOPHOMORE star, the
spark plug of the Maize and Blue
quintet, is dangerous from almost
any scoring position on the floor.
Barron's most effective shots are
his deadly two-hand set from be-
yond the foul line and his jump
shot taken "in close" to the bas-
ket.
Because of his potent scoring
ability many fans overlook the
fact that Barron is an excellent
ball handler and play-maker
and often comes up with a key
rebound.
He is modest, reticent, and very
unassuming. Barron is a hard
worker and is always trying to
improve his play. Evidence of this
fact was given yesterday at scrim-
mage when Barron continued to
practice his potent set-shot long
after coach Bill Perigo had dis-
missed his squad.
COMMENTING on Barron's
perseverance Perigo said, "He's
just about the hardest worker on

the team. I only wish the rest
of the men on the team had his
spirit and drive."
The Chicago star's greatest
weakness, if he has any at all,
is that he is too aggressive dur-
ing a ballgame. This has caused
Barron to pick up many fouls,
and as a result, foul out of a
few games. It must be mention-
ed, however, that this is not
due to a basic weakness in his
ability to guard his opponent.
Many of Barron's fouls have
been for charging-a purely of-
fensive maneuver.
Barron's best effort so far this
season has been against Wash-
ington University of St. Louis,
against whom he scored 27 points.
This performance came within a
point of tying the Michigan mark
of 28 points set by Mack Supru-
nowicz in 1949 against the Purdue
Boilermakers in Yost Field House.
BARRON, who did not see much
action in the second half be-
cause he had picked up three per-
sonal fouls in the first portion of
the game, led the Michigan scor-
ing attack with 11 field goals of
16 attempts and five of seven free
throw tries.
The sophomore sensation also
had a "hot" night in Michgian's
losing effort to the Iowa Buck-
eyes. In this game also, personal
fouls played an important part
in Barron's play. Even though
he fouled out, the Chicagoan
was still able to rack up 26
paints-based on nine field goals
and eight free throws.
Unfortunately, Barron has not
been able to score profusely in
every game. In the second Iowa
game he was held to 11 points.
Though this figure is quite re-
spectable, it is below par for a
man of Barron's ability.
Once again, Barron was unable
to keep from fouling out. In the
Iowa contest Barron left the game
with five personal fouls only one
minute after the beginning of the
second half.
As soon as Barron overcomes
this tendency towards fouling, his
basketball efficiency will soar even
higher.{
