Galloway says he will transfer to an undetermined other school for his final season of college eligibility. He reportedly told Coach Bob Knight of his decision Monday morning. "I didn't want to leave, I want to stay here all four years because this might be the best place in the country for me," Galloway said in an interview with The Indianapolis Star published today. Galloway said that when he told Knight he would transfer to another school, the coach asked him why he couldn't stay, work hard and improve his play for the Hoosiers. "I told him, 'Because I'm not happy here.' "But I had to do what ] though was best for me, and if things don't work out that's something I can live with because I made the decision, "he said. Knight could not immediately be reached for comment. Galloway, a 6-foot-6 forward who was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year two years ago, started 14 of the Hoosier's first 15 games and was leading the team then with averages 15.9 points and 35.5 minutes per game. But the defending national champions were 1-4 in the Big Ten, and Knight benched Galloway and senior guard Keith Smart to make room for freshmen guards Jay Edwards and Lyndon Jones. Indiana won its next five games and Edwards has remained in the lineup, duplicating Galloway's Freshman of the Year honors. "Staying and having the same thing happen over again, I couldn't live with that," Galloway told The Star. "I don't want to take a chance and have the same thing happen to me as happened to Keith his last year, being set down. If I don't make it, let it be because I made the wrong decision, not because somebody else made the decision." Galloway would have to sit out a year under NCAA rules before being able to play for another school. He hasn't said which colleges he's interested in. "Rick was recruited by every college in America coming out of high school," his father, Richard Galloway, told television station WTHR. "I'd like to think someone would want him. "Without question, Coach Knight is the best college coach. It's unfortunate he has not yet learned how to deal with human beings," the father said. Calloway,, playing last year in his hometown of Cincinnati, had a season-high 21 points in Indiana's Midwest Regional semifi- Keady Wary Of Tournament Rematch With Kansas State WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue Coach Gene Keady has a great deal of respect for his alma mater Kansas State, and for good reason. The 20th-ranked Wildcats are standing between Keady and his first trip to an NCAA regional final. Of course, Keady hasn't exactly been the picture of a gracious alumnus this season, especially after his third-ranked Boilermakers handed Kansas State a 101-72 pasting in December at West Lafayette. That was the first time since 1%9 a Wildcat opponent had topped 100 points. "It's a different situation now, so we'll treat it differently," Keady said. "They came in here not knowing what to expect and got into kind of a hornet's nest in Mackey Arena. "But after that game they really got better. They went back and regrouped and became a tremendous team. They're well-balanced, well- coached and do a tremendous job of getting the ball to Mitch Richmond. This time it ought to be a very close game." Richmond, a 6-foot-5 senior forward touted as a first-round pick in this year's NBA draft, scored just 14 points in the first game against Purdue — nine under his season average. Purdue, 29-3 and the Big Ten champions, and Kansas State, the Big Eight tourney runners-up and holder of a 24-8 mark, face off Friday night in the Silverdome in Pontiac, Mich. The survivor advances to Sunday's Midwest Regional final against the winner of the Kansas-Vanderbilt game. Purdue's senior guard Troy Lewis, Richmond's teammate last summer on the U.S. team at the World University Games, expects a tough rematch. "Like Coach Keady said, just because we blow a team out doesn't mean we can go to Pontiac and do the same thing," Lewis said. But he added, "We' ve got momentum.'' The 6-4 guard scored 22 points in the 100-73 win Saturday over Memphis State to boost his career total to 2,019 points and become only the fourth Boilermaker to top 2,000. He and follow seniors Todd Mitchell and Everette Stephens lasted through the second round for the first time out of four trips to the NCAA field. "We're not going home and putting away our stuff. We've still got at least another weekend of playing basketball and that feels good," Lewis said. "It will be interesting to see how we come nal win over Duke. He went on to score the winning tip-in in the 77-76 regional final victory over Louisiana State. He earlier had had a career-high 13 rebounds in the second-round win over Auburn. But he never left the bench in the Hoosiers' season-ending 72-69 loss to Richmond in Friday's first round of the East Regional tournament. He played just 41 seconds in Indiana's 116-89 blowout of mh-ranked Iowa that closed out the regular-season. Calloway had started four of Hoosiers' last seven games, but his averages had dropped to 11.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 29 minutes per game. Knight reportedly was displeased that the forward had not worked to become a stronger rebounder and inside defender. "You can lift weights, you can work your butt off and he just hasn't done it," The Star quoted Knight as saying recently. "They told me I had to get stronger and I felt I had, not to the point that I should have, but I was improved from last year," Calloway said. "I was over the knee injury (which kept him out of five games last season), I was scoring, I was rebounding, I was playing defense. "It was all of a sudden, that's what I can't understand. All he kept saying was about not working out last summer, that's what he kept saying," Calloway said of Knight.

"It's the kids' character, but there hasn't really been any pressure," Keady said of Purdue reaching the regional semifinals for the first time under him. "I think we have the attitude we're going to try our best, and if it doesn't work out for us, we're going to walk away from it and say, 'Hey, we gave it our best shot.' ] haven't sensed any pressure at all." Kansas State advanced to the Purdue game by beating DePaul 66-58 in the other second-round game Saturday at South Bend. Coach Lon Kruger said the rematch with Purdue "will be a challenge, but we're looking forward to it." "Purdue is big, they're strong, they shoot the ball well, they have outstanding quickness and they play a very physical game," Kruger said. "I'm not sure what came out of that first meeting. Purdue kicked us real good. Hopefully, now we're playing a little bit differently than we were at that time." Boston College Athletes Deserve Respect: Crews EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Evansville Coach Jim Crews has plenty of respect for Boston College, which despite its seventh-place finish in the Big East beat St. John's twice and had back-to-back wins over Seton Hall and Georgetown. "Some people have told me from that conference, that even though they have as good a personnel as anyone, they just lack a little experience from their inside people," Crews said of his opponent tonight in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament. "But everything's relative. That lack of experience, compared to the people they're playing and against us, is two different things." Evansville is 21-7 after a 66-55 first-round NIT victory over Utah last Thursday. Crews reached several conclusions after viewing tapes of Boston College, which defeated Siena 73-65 in the first round. "We're playing a very athletic team," Crews said of the 16-13 Eagles. "They use their ability very well with their quickness and their strength. They're kind of a typical Big East team, playing very hard and changing things up defensively." Playing in their first NIT and riding a 20-game home winning streak, the Aces face the task of stopping Boston co-captain Dana Barros, a 5-foot-ll junior guard who led the conference with 21.5 points per game. Barros and 6-foot senior guard Jamie Benton have combined for 144 three- point goals this season. The job of handling Barros will likely go to Veltra Dawson, a 6-1 senior guard who transfered to Evansville from Villanova in January 1986 and was a freshman reserve on Villanova's 1985 national championship team.

The Aces offense is built around power forward Marty Simmons, a 6-6 senior from' Lawrenceville, 111., who transfered from Indiana. Simmons, averaging 25.8 points, needs seven against Boston College take third place in single- season scoring at Evansville. "We're going to have to be awfully sharp with the basketball and really do a good job with our cuts and screens from an offensive standpoint," said Crews. "And defensively, one of our weaknesses is rebounding, so that's always a big concern with us." FRESH GRADE A Chicken $ 1 1 9 Breast I Ib. TENDER Beef Liver 59 BONELESS ROLLED Pork Roast $]39 Ib.
