Galindo: "I'll Talk to Coach Sendek"

If Herb Sendek calls, Alex Galindo will certainly listen. <P>

If Herb Sendek calls, Alex Galindo will certainly listen.

The 6-7, 210-pound St. Benedict's (N.J.) senior, who was granted a release from his letter-of-intent at UTEP after the head coach and the assistant who was the primary reason why he signed with the Miners, both left for head jobs elsewhere.

Galindo is currently spending 10 days at his home in Puerto Rico and he'll meet with St. Benedict's head man Dan Hurley upon his return in an effort to figure out which schools to seriously consider.

The Wolfpack were under consideration prior to Galindo choosing UTEP, but one thing has changed since then for Sendek & Co.

"I have a much better view of the school now," Galindo said. "It's because I had a chance to see them play this year. Before this year I hadn't even seen them play, but now I know exactly how they play."

And Galindo is a pretty good fit because of his versatility.

He's a three-man who can cause major matchup problems because he rebounds extremely well, takes it to the basket strong and can also step out and knock down the 18-footer.

Galindo said the Kansas coach Bill Self and the staff at Rutgers have already come down and watched him. Pittsburgh is the other school he mentioned that has been in touch thus far.

"Once N.C. State gets in touch with me, I'll talk to Coach Sendek," Galindo added. "I like them. I really like their style of play."

Galindo, who was reached while on the beach in Puerto Rico, said that this time around he won't let his heart and emotions factor so much into his decision.

"I learned the hard way that it's a business," he said. "But I'm pretty excited that I'm out there. It's been crazy and I think it's way too early for me to say which schools I really like. I can't tell until I see who is interested in me."

One thing's for certain: N.C. State is on that list.
