Gallagher Leads Brandywine Trio On All-PSUAC Men’s Basketball Teams
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Senior Pat Gallagher (Broomall, Pa./Marple Newtown) capped his four-year career at Penn State Brandywine by being named to the All-Penn State University Athletic Conference Men's Basketball First Team, while junior Ketquan Gatewood (Detroit, Mich./Detroit Collegiate Prep) and sophomore Bryce Barrouk (Glen Mills, Pa./Rustin) were both honorable selection all-conference awardees when the league revealed the honors on Sunday.
Gallagher, the only Lion to start all 25 games, finished fourth in the PSUAC in scoring, averaging 17.8 points per game. He produced a trio of 30-point games, two against conference foes, and recorded Brandywine's first 40-point output since 2008 two weeks ago during his Senior Day game against Penn State Scranton.
Gallagher shot nearly 46 percent from the field, while connecting on a career-best 45 three-pointers. He netted 445 of his 843 career points this winter to conclude his 80-game career.
In addition, Gallagher ranked fourth in the conference in assists per game (4.3) and averaged 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 steals per outing, all career-best totals, while playing more than 35 minutes per game.
Gatewood finished his first season at Brandywine as the PSUAC's second-leading rebounder after pulling down 11.8 boards per game. His 246 total rebounds were the most by a Lion in more than 10 seasons.
A starter in 24 games, Gatewood produced 13 double-doubles after ranking third on the team in scoring. He averaged 15.9 points per night, tallying eight 20-point games. Gatewood reached the 1,000-point mark for his collegiate career during Brandywine's season finale in late February.
Barrouk made his mark as one of the conference's top shooters. He paced all PSUAC players by connecting on more than 48 percent of his 151 three-point attempts and was the top free throw shooter, knocking down 87.7 percent of his shots from the line.
In 22 games, Barrouk buried 69 three-pointers, the second-highest total in the conference and was Brandywine's second-leading scorer, averaging 17.4 points per game. He was also the Lions' second-leading rebounder (6.4 rpg).
In addition, Barrouk was the recipient of the John Fritz Sportsmanship Award from the conference. Named after former PSUAC Commissioner John Fritz, the sportsmanship award is given to one player from each team in the league who best displays the core values of the league and sportsmanship to teammates and opponents throughout the season.
