Last November, after current Hawk freshman Langston Galloway signed his Letter of Intent with Saint Joseph's, I was fortunate enough to interview Langston and his father Larry. If you didn't read the interview then, please check out the link at the bottom of this article. At the time, most people that follow the Hawks weren't very familiar with Langston. That has all changed in a year, as Langston is one of the key pieces of this year's Hawk team as a freshman.
This week, Langston received two accolades for his terrific performances against Rutgers and Fairfield. In the two games, Langston averaged 17.5 points, and in the Rutgers game alone, Langston dished out 8 assists. For his efforts, Langston was named Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week and Big 5 Player of the Week. Articles on both awards are linked below.
The Hawks face two city opponents this week, playing at Drexel on Wednesday night and at Villanova on Friday. The Hawks enter this week's action riding a 3 game winning streak, and with a 3-2 record.
