    Smile But some of them he barely knew.

    One day some boys brought scissors to school and shaved their heads. Most of the boys who had their heads shaved were Dominic's best friends and fellow basketball players.But some of them he barely knew.


    Does the line in bold mean "Dominic hardly knew some of them" or "He knew them but they were only nodding acquainces?" Thanks.
