TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State’s senior trio of Todd Galloway, Diego Romero and Andrew Wilson have been named tri-captains of the Seminole men’s basketball team for the 2005-06 season by fourth-year Head Coach Leonard Hamilton. Galloway and Wilson are in their fourth season while Romero is playing his third season for Hamilton and all will earn degrees in the spring – Galloway and Romero will earn their undergraduate degrees and Wilson his master’s degree in sports administration.
Hamilton’s announcement of team tri-captains is the first time he has named team captains during his tenure at Florida State.
“This is the right time and these are the right players to lead our team this season,” said Hamilton. “All three are high quality individuals with a great deal of integrity who have really matured during their careers at Florida State. The leadership they will provide to their teammates will undoubtedly help our team reach our goals during the season.”
Galloway, a native of Baltimore, Md., is in his second season as the Seminoles’ starting point guard. He has begun his senior season looking to become one of Florida State’s all-time leaders in assists, steals and 3-point field goals made. He is also on pace to become one of the school’s all-time leaders in games played; he will play in the 100th game of his career in early December.
Romero, a transfer student-athlete from Comodoro, Argentina, is playing in his second season and is in his third season in the program. He is averaging 6.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in the first two games of the 2005-06 season. Romero earned the first double-double of his Seminole career in the Seminoles’ season opening victory over Jacksonville with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
Wilson, the first player in ACC history to play at least one game in six different seasons, is from Kennesaw, Ga. He has played in 101 career games and is within 22 games of becoming the all-time Florida State leader with 123 games played. Wilson is also one of the top 3-point shooters in school history who has made 70 shots from long range during his career. He is ranked 20th in school history in the 3-point shots made category.
Both Galloway and Wilson helped the Seminoles advance to the second round of the NIT Tournament in 2004. Galloway, Romero and Wilson have helped Florida State defeat six ranked teams including No. 5 Duke on Feb. 2, 2003 and No. 3 Wake Forest on Jan. 18, 2005.
