Ramon Galloway, a Philadelphia native who was South Carolina’s third-leading scorer this season, will be transferring to La Salle, a source said.
The 6-2 guard will have to sit out a year and will be eligible for the start of the 2012-13 season. He averaged 10.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists as a sophomore but started only four games. He began the year as a reserve while recovering from a broken foot suffered when he kicked an object in frustration but played in all 30 games.
In 61 career games over two seasons, he averaged 9.3 points.
Coach Darrin Horn had been critical of Galloway late in the season, saying he had expected more from him. Galloway is among seven players who have left the South Carolina program for a variety of reasons since Horn replaced Dave Odom after the 2007-08 season.
