Question: What have the last few weeks been like for you?
Galloway: "It has been a little up and down. It has been great overall playing for Kentucky and working this hard."
Question: Has anyone ever worked you as hard as Gillispie?
Galloway: "No, but that's why I came here. I knew he would get nothing but the best out of me and I have to keep on with that."
Question: Since you were used to playing a lot, how hard has it been to adjust to not playing nearly as much?
Galloway: "That has been really difficult, but I have always been a team player. I just kind of embrace that to show I can cheer my teammates on."
Question: Gillispie says he wants you to be the best defensive player in the league. How much has he talked to you about that?
Galloway: "He talks about that and I am trying to embrace that role and work hard on playing defense. I knew when I got here that I had to improve a lot. Everybody does. I didn't know how much I needed to improve exactly, but now I know I have to really key on defense and work even harder."
Question: What is your best position, or is there a best position for you?
Galloway: "At this point, I am not sure it will be just one position. It will probably be multiple positions and going and making simple plays and making plays on defense. That suits me fine."
Question: Why are you starting to get to play more minutes?
Galloway: "I am just embracing my role and instead of getting down, I am working harder in practice and feeding off not playing in games by going even harder in practice. It's been hard, but you get used to what it takes to play here."
Question: How hard is it from day to day to know what it takes to please Gillispie?
Galloway: "It's not really that hard. As long as you go hard in everything you, then he can overlook it if you are going hard. He emphasizes that a lot."
Question: What was it like to be in the starting lineup for the first time against Mississippi Valley State?
Galloway: "It felt great. I was very excited. That's one of the reasons I came here to get that feeling."
Question: How good can this team be?
Galloway: "I think we can improve a lot. We know that and we are going to keep improving. We have two weeks now without as many games, so we can practice more. Game days are definitely easier than practices, so we will get a lot of chances to improve."
Question: What kind of leadership is the coaching staff looking for at this point?
Galloway: "They want us all to be leaders on and off the court and they want some guys to step up and take control of the team."
Question: Who has helped you the most when you had questions or maybe were feeling a little down or confused?
Galloway: "All the coaches care about us and keep our head level. All the players help one another out. All the upperclassmen have been there for me when I needed them every single day to help me."
