Update: Galloway’s mother provided this update on Friday — “He is out of surgery. Dr. Said hopefully 4 weeks.”
The original story follows.
Indiana’s luxury of having all 13 available scholarship players healthy didn’t last long.
Sophomore guard Trey Galloway suffered a broken left wrist last night after he fell to the floor hard on a play in which he was flagrantly fouled.
Galloway’s mother broke the news.
“Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes,” Dawn Galloway wrote on social media. “Trey will have surgery tomorrow (Friday) at 10:00 am. Broken left wrist. 6 weeks (sooner the better)!”
Galloway suffered the injury after stealing a first half pass and meeting St. John’s Montez Mathis at the rim as he attempted to score in transition. Mathis pulled on Galloway’s arm while he was in the air, causing him to fall awkwardly. He left the game and did not return, although he was with the team on the bench in the second half.
This is at least the third time Galloway has suffered a serious wrist injury. The Culver, Ind. product had shooting hand wrist injuries during both his junior and senior seasons at Culver Academies.
The 6-foot-4 Galloway is averaging 3.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 13.3 minutes per contest.
The six week timeline means Galloway is projected to return roughly around January 1.
