BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — Indiana University junior guard Trey Galloway, from Carmel, is having his best season since joining the program in 2020.

Galloway averages 6.8 points per game, ranking him sixth on the team. He proves himself willing to step up in different ways each game, though statistics do not tell the whole story. 

Last season, Galloway missed 15 games due to an injury, and had to have surgery this past offseason. Despite this, he has kept a positive mindset though it wasn’t always easy. 

Galloway said, “I spent a lot of time on the sidelines this summer, watching our guys get better … the end of last year … was really challenging. But, I think just putting things in perspective that it could always be worse.”

Many consider Galloway to be a “glue guy” for the Hoosiers.

A “glue guy” is someone who does everything he can to help his team win, whether it’s scoring a lot one game or making key defensive plays in another. 

Galloway says it is essential to have a “glue guy” on your team.

He said, “Being the guy that can keep things together, and do all the little things, is just huge for our team. I think I can keep doing it and do even more.”

He also says that the biggest stat for the team is winning, and said, “That’s the one thing I’ve tried to focus on is just trying to help my team win.”

Galloway has played in 30 games this season and started in 23 of those games. He leads the Hoosiers in three-point percentage, having gone 28-of-62 (45.2%) from behind the arc this year.
