Friday Night Notes

Langston Galloway signed a ten-day contract with the New York Knicks just over a week ago. During the four games in that ten-day period, Galloway averaged 9.8 points, 3 assists, and 2 rebounds. On Friday afternoon, news leaked that Galloway signed a second ten-day contract with the Knicks. Get the latest on that, and more, inside.

St. Joe's grad Langston Galloway was signed to a second consecutive ten-day contract with the New York Knicks on Friday afternoon. Galloway, a 6'2 guard, graduated from St. Joe's in the spring. Following a sensational start to the NBDL season with the Westchester Knicks, Galloway got the call up two weeks ago. He gets a second go-around thanks to today's signing.

Next Wednesday will be a homecoming of sorts for the St. Joe's product. The Knicks travel to Philadelphia on Wednesday night to face off with the Sixers. That is a great opportunity for St. Joe's fans to see Galloway in the NBA. This ten-day contract should take Langston through the 26th, meaning he will get five more games before the Knicks have to make a final decision. The Knicks are at home against the Pelicans on Monday, then at Philadelphia Wednesday, at home against Orlando on Thursday, at Charlotte Saturday, then at home against Sacramento the following Monday.

This ten-day deal is the last contract of that type that the Knicks can offer Galloway. If Langston plays well enough, and impresses the Knicks coaches and Phil Jackson enough, it's possible that the Knicks ink him for the remainder of the season. Otherwise, Langston could either be signed by another NBA team or return to the D League.

Shifting our attention back to this year's St. Joe's team, the Hawks have a travel day tomorrow before playing at Saint Bonaventure Sunday afternoon. St. Joe's enters Sunday afternoon's game at 7-8, and 1-3 in Atlantic 10 play. The Hawks are coming off a much-needed home win Wednesday night against Fordham. The Hawks got a career-high 23 points from senior point guard Chris Wilson, and they needed just about every single one of them. St. Joe's used a late run to knock off Fordham 66-55. The win snapped a four-game losing streak that spanned back to December when the Hawks lost in overtime at Denver.

In local high school action, there are a number of local games of interest this weekend. I will be at Lower Merion High School tomorrow when The Haverford School and Friends' Central square off. That game features the two best 2016 wings in the Philadelphia area in Haverford's Lamar Stevens and Friends' Central's DeAndre Hunter. Both players hold offers from St. Joe's. That being said, Stevens also holds offers from Indiana, Villanova, Temple, and several others. He appears to be a reach for the Hawks. Hunter also projects to the high major level, but St. Joe's is doing everything they can to stay in the mix with him.

Both St. Joe's Prep and Neumann-Goretti were in action Friday night. The Prep beat West Catholic while Neumann-Goretti took care of business Archbishop. I will include stats from those two games in tomorrow's round-up article. Both Chris Clover and Lamarr Kimble are playing like First Team All-Catholic League selections to date.

Tomorrow, I will have a Saint Bonaventure preview up, and then Sunday a recap of Friends' Central-Haverford School. It's a busy weekend in the world of Hawk Hoops.
