Ramon Galloway is now a proud college graduate and a prospect for the 2013 NBA Draft. Three months ago, Galloway was on the nation's center stage as the La Salle Explorer's made their deepest run in the NCAA Tournament since 1955. Could Galloway's performance in the tournament alone be enough to hear his name on June 27th for the NBA Draft?
Ramon Galloway's path to the draft started during his time at La Salle, when he transfered from South Carolina after his sophomore year. Galloway averaged 15.6 points during his time at La Salle, shooting 43.8% from the field and 42.7% from three-point range. Where Ramon Galloway lacks is in height, standing at 6'3" and weighing only 180 pounds, his small stature makes him a defensive liability.But where Ramon Galloway lacks in size, he makes up for in athletic ability.
The man has a knack for throwing it down...hard. As the country saw during the tournament, Galloway also has the ability to shoot the ball from waaaay down town. Shooting 46.5% from three-point range and averaging 3.5 three-pointers made during the tournament, including shooting 6 for 10 from downtown versus Ole Miss in the second round to get the Explorers to their first Sweet 16 bid since 1955.
Regardless of whether or not Ramon Galloway makes the NBA, he will be a human highlight reel anywhere he plays. Galloway would be the first Explorer selected in the NBA since the Miami Heat selected Rasual Butler in the 2nd round (53rd overall) of the 2002 NBA Draft. Being a natural shooting guard and having a tremendous amount of athletic ability will be the key selling points for the NBA Draft.
