Galloway hits milestone in Hawk victory
Galloway surpassed the 1,000-point mark on his second shot of the game and became the 50th Hawk to reach the milestone, and the 21st player to do so in three seasons. The junior shot 6-for-9 from the field, while making 4-of-7 three-point field goals.
"I'm delighted for him, he's a wonderful young guy," said SJU coach Phil Martelli. "But it's all about the win. Individual accolades mean nothing, and should mean nothing to this group. He was smooth tonight - he had a nice stroke going."
American, now 2-4, was led by Stephen Lumpkins with 18 points while Tony Wroblicky scored 14 points.
Saint Joseph's led in the early going, but American used a 7-0 run late in the first half to go up, 28-21, at 2:26. The Hawks then scored 11 straight, using three-pointers by Galloway, Aiken and Wilson, to regain the lead, 32-28, at halftime.
"We were down seven because we didn't guard. Then we went on the stretch with that run - it was because we got stops and could get in the flow," said Martelli.
The Hawks continued the run in the second half, outscoring the Eagles, 13-6, in the first five minutes to take a 44-34 lead. SJU kept it going and took a 59-41 lead with 8:45 to play, and then its biggest of the game, 69-48, at 4:33.
SJU shot 54.3 percent from the field in the game and had its best effort of the season from the three-point line, hitting 14-of-28, led by Jones, who connected on 5-of-9.
Saint Joseph's played without starting forward Halil Kanacevic, who was sidelined with a back strain. His status is day-to-day for the next game at Creighton.
