NEW YORK - The play hit the highlight reels, Marv Albert providing the soundtrack: Galloway, off the pump fake, fires and HITS, that's a two-pointer. . . . Reggie Jackson went FLYING. The TV analyst added more: "The little pirouette step-back . . . " This play offered just a clue of how St. Joseph's graduate Langston Galloway has defied a lot of big odds to find footing in the NBA. After Galloway's routine head fake got Pistons guard Reggie Jackson high into the air, the play was already a success.

SAINT JOSEPH'S forward DeAndre' Bembry dribbles right, dribble-steps back, puts the ball on the hardwood with his left and then takes off from the edge of the key and dunks with one hand over a Fordham defender in the second half of an 82-60 victory over the Rams. The first person on his feet was Bembry's former teammate Langston Galloway, now a point guard with the New York Knicks. Galloway has been through a lot since he finished his four-year career at Saint Joseph's. He wasn't selected in either round of the 2014 NBA draft, but found his way onto the Knicks' summer league roster and eventually their D-League affiliate in White Plains, N.Y. Now entrenched on the Knicks' roster, Galloway is a shining example of the new path to the NBA. Galloway played with Bembry during his senior season when Bembry had just stepped onto campus, and the pair helped lead the Hawks to the program's first NCAA Tournament berth since 2008.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - LPGA Hall of Famer Juli Inkster will turn 55 next month. So what was she doing tying for seventh in her most recent start, at last month's Volunteers of America North Texas Shootout, a week after coming in 15th at the Swinging Skirts Classic in San Francisco, her best finish since a 15th at last June's U.S. Open? Isn't women's golf mostly supposed to belong to teenagers these days? So maybe there's a time warp going on. "I love competing," Inkster said at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, where the 54-hole LPGA ShopRite Classic tees off tomorrow on the Bay Course.

LANGSTON GALLOWAY got his first start in the NBA on Monday for the New York Knicks. It matters to him that his journey into the league resulted in 21 points in that start. It matters to him that he helped the team snap its longest single-season losing streak in team history at 16 games. It won't satisfy him, however. The Saint Joseph's product, who left the school second to Jameer Nelson in career points with 1,991 and first in three-pointers with 343, doesn't get easily satisfied, not when it comes to his game.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - On the day last week that Langston Galloway signed his 10-day contract with the New York Knicks, he called his college coach to share the good news, and from the St. Joseph's team bus, trundling through downtown Pittsburgh to a game against Duquesne, Phil Martelli gave Galloway a sound piece of advice: Don't let the culture around the NBA's worst team corrupt you. The Knicks' season has been a car crash that everyone should have...

DURING THE preseason, Hawks star Langston Galloway was apprehensive about traveling to Italy because he was afraid of flying over the Atlantic Ocean. But Galloway regained his comfort level during the regular season back in Hagan Arena, eventually leading Saint Joseph's to the 2013-14 Atlantic 10 Tournament title and an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. Last Sunday, Galloway had his first NBA Draft workout, with the Sixers, a process that gave him the same jitters as he had during St. Joe's preseason travels.
