Two Teams Winning The Galloway

It's not often when two City 6 teams have players who share a surname that isn't something along the lines of Smith, Jones, Brown or Williams.

So when it became apparent that both Saint Joseph's and La Salle would be posting players by the name of Galloway in their lineups, we couldn't wait for the Hawks and the Explorers to square off (Saturday, 12 p.m., Palestra) so we could list their stats side-by-side.

We got even more excited (it really doesn't take much) when we saw that their numbers — particularly their shooting percentages — were nearly identically.

Below is the statistical tale of those two Galloways:
