Langston Galloway Named Team Captain for Men's Basketball
Oct. 18, 2012
PHILADELPHIA - Junior Langston Galloway has been named team captain for the Saint Joseph's basketball team in 2012-13, as voted on by his teammates.
The 6-2 guard was second on the squad in scoring last season with 15.5 points, and was the top three-point shooter in the Atlantic 10. Galloway averaged 2.66 three-pointers per game and shot 46.6 percent from three-point range, which ranked as the fourth-best number in the nation.
Galloway, who was named the team's MVP for the second year in a row, tallied double figures in all but six games last season for the 20-14 Hawks.
The Hawks, who return all 12 players from last year, were picked as the favorite in the Atlantic 10 in the league's preseason poll. Saint Joseph's also received votes this week in the USA Today Coaches Preseason Poll.
A preview of the Hawks will be featured on Comcast SportsNet this Sunday, October 21 during "Sports Nite" at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Saint Joseph's will play a Coaches vs. Cancer Classic exhibition game on November 8 against Wheeling Jesuit at Hagan Arena. The Hawks open the 2012-13 season on November 12 hosting Yale in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. For ticket information, call 888-SJU-HAWK.
