Galloway Finds Second Family, Success at La Salle
Ramon Galloway was only at La Salle for two years, having transferred from the University of South Carolina, but he certainly made his mark as an Explorer. Galloway, who grew up in Germantown and whose jersey number, 55, paid tribute to the address of his childhood home, saw transferring back to La Salle as a homecoming to his city and his family. His spectacular play as a member of the men’s basketball team, which made it all the way to the Sweet Sixteen in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, helped to turn all eyes to La Salle during March Madness. Also, the leadership and good humor he displayed on the court and around campus made him a valued member of the community.
Galloway, who averaged a team-leading 17.2 points per game in the 2012–13 season, was named to the All Big 5 first team, appeared in the NCAA Slam Dunk Contest at this year’s Final Four, and will graduate on Sunday with a degree in criminal justice.
