Indiana guard Trey Galloway has offseason surgery

Indiana junior guard Trey Galloway had surgery Tuesday related to a groin injury suffered during the 2021-22 season, The Daily Hoosier has confirmed.

Galloway injured his groin in a game against Wisconsin in February and returned for the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments.

While his full recovery period is to be determined, the surgery is not expected to cause Galloway to miss any fall practice or time during the 2022-23 season.

Galloway missed 15 games due to two different injuries last season– a fractured wrist suffered against St. John’s in November, and the groin issue.

Overall he played in 20 of 35 contests and started three times.  The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 20.8 minutes per game and shot 46.4 percent from the field and 65 percent from the free throw line.  Galloway averaged 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and .9 steals per contest.

When he was healthy, Galloway was often part of head coach Mike Woodson’s lineup to close out games.  He played a major role in the two games that marked his return from both injuries — at home against Ohio State, and vs. Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament — and IU won both contests.

Galloway is expected to be a key part of the rotation in 2022-23.
