An X-factor with her combination of size and athleticism for the District 23-5A champion Ball High Lady Tors, junior post Bebe Galloway is the 2018-19 Galveston County girls basketball Player of the Year.

Coming from a basketball family, Galloway started playing the game when she was five years old. Older sisters Jordan Galloway and Martina Rawls also played in the Ball High girls’ basketball program.

“I just looked up to them and wanted to be just like them,” Galloway said. “They’re like my role models. We always played against each other, and I would always lose. But, they can’t beat me now.”

The 6-foot-1 Galloway averaged a double-double this season, recording 15 points per game, 10 rebounds per game, three blocks per game and three steals per game. Galloway was the Lady Tors’ leading scorer this season, but it’s on the defensive end of the floor where she takes the most pride in her game.

After doing a lot of listening last year as a player the Ball High program, this year, head coach Amanda King said Galloway was more of a vocal leader this her freshman season, often encouraging her teammates and making sure they were on the same page.

“I’ve been fortunate to see her grow up as a player, and it’s been exciting having her as part of the program,” King said. “She’s really become a leader in the program this year, and that’s been really gratifying to see as a coach.”

In conclusion continuing to improve her skill set, Galloway said her top goal going forward is to keep the program, which won district this season and was a district runner-up her freshman year in the last seasons on track in its winning ways. She also won her sophomore year.
