PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's freshman Langston Galloway has been named to the 2011 Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team, in a vote of the league's 14 coaches. He becomes the 14th Hawk to earn All-Rookie honors and the first since 2006-07.
Galloway earned the league's Rookie of the Week honors five times, which tied Duquesne's T.J. McConnell for the league's high this season while earning the weekly award four times in the last five weeks.
