The Kentucky alums participating in this year’s edition of The Basketball Tournament have added a fifth player — small forward Kevin Galloway.
The Bluegrass Boys’ official title is followed with “Kentucky Alumni” in parenthesis, although Galloway isn’t technically an alum. Galloway transferred to Kentucky from USC and played one year for Billy Gillispie in 2008-09, averaging two points, two rebounds and two assists a game. He transferred to Texas Southern after the head coaching change.
Since his college playing days ended in 2011, Galloway has primarily played overseas. Currently balling in Beirut, he reels in triple doubles on a regular basis with a stat line of 15 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds per game.
The first regional portion of The Basketball Tournament begins July 9th in Charlotte and will be televised by ESPN. If you want to watch Galloway ball alongside Marquis Teague, Joe Crawford, Perry Stevenson and Ramel Bradley for a $2 million grand prize, you need to secure their spot by submitting your vote for The Bluegrass Boys.
