Despite a strong year for the Atlantic 10 this season, they seemingly have a shortage of prospects for tonight’s 2013 NBA Draft. A quick glance at some mock drafts around the interwebs (ESPN [Subscription Only], DraftExpress, NBADraft.net) show no A-10 players projected as selections in either round. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t at least a few guys who have a shot. We’ve already talked about C.J. Aiken’s chances, and today we’ll take a look at La Salle’s Ramon Galloway.
Galloway turned in a spectacular senior season for the Explorers; one that saw him lead his team to the Sweet 16. The star point guard averaged 17.2 points per game on the season, good enough to earn him First Team All A-10 honors. Besides the scoring, Galloway shot the ball extremely well; 42 percent from the field and 41 percent from three-point range. So that should be good enough to get drafted, right?
Well, maybe not. Galloway his a touch undersized, checking in anywhere between 6’1″ and 6’3″ (depending on what site you check). However, he does possess an impressive 6’8″ wingspan, and is an all-around athlete on both offense and defense. DraftExpress lists Galloway as the 42nd best NCAA Senior in the draft, and the 19th best 2013 point guard. Will that be enough to see him come off the board? Quite possibly. We’re only a few hours away from finding out.
