A 6'2, 200 pound guard from Louisiana, Langston Galloway was one of the bright spots on an otherwise disappointing 2010-2011 season for the Hawks. Galloway turned in several terrific performances last year, including a 27-point effort at Charlotte.
The nephew of Saint Joseph's assistant coach Geoff Arnold, Galloway turned down numerous offers from high-level programs to play on Hawk Hill. Galloway, along with fellow sophomores C.J. Aiken, Ron Roberts, and Daryus Quarles, have Hawk fans optimistic about the coming season.
According to Saint Joseph's assistant coach Dave Duda, the bar is set high for Galloway. In fact, Duda explained that he thinks that Langston "needs to be one of the fifteen best players in the league" this year. That is attainable though, according to his coach, who said that Galloway has "high all-league potential."
In order for the Hawks to significantly improve from last year, they will need Langston and fellow guard Tay Jones to have All-Conference type of seasons. The two combined for nearly thirty points per game last year, and it wouldn't shock anyone if that number significantly increased this year.
Since the end of last season, Galloway has been working diligently on his game. During practices this fall, the staff has been working with him on responding to the attention he will see from defenses this season. "He is working hard on counters to being defended in a particular fashion," Coach Duda stated. "He has been hounded by defenders in practice," Duda went on, "preparing him for how good players are guarded."
In order for the Hawks to make a jump from the bottom tier of the Atlantic 10 ranks this season, they will need Langston to be a reliable scorer. While he did score twenty points or more eight times, Langston also had 10 games where he was held to seven points or fewer.
The Hawks are expecting a lot out of their sophomore shooting guard this season. Against Western Kentucky last year, Galloway had 13 points and 7 rebounds in his first collegiate game. In order for the Hawks to pay the Hilltoppers back for last season's defeat, they will need Galloway to play a significant role.
