The Saint Mary’s University Sport Hall of Fame has announced its 2007 class of inductees, including a pair of basketball stars from the 1970's who were key members of the Huskies 1973 CIAU championship team. Former Huskie ballers being inducted this year are John Gallinaugh, a point guard, and Lee Thomas, a dominating center. Gallinaugh, a native of Rockaway Beach, N.Y., who stayed in Halifax after his university days, remains one of the greatest basketball players in SMU history. A savvy point guard, he guided the team to the Canadian university championship in 1973. The Gallinaugh family tradition continues at St. Mary's this coming season as John's son, 6'1" Jack Gallinaugh, will join the Huskies squad as a freshman out of Halifax. Thomas was another key member of the 1973 championship team as a three-time conference all-star in 1973, 1974 and 1976 and a two-time All-Canadian. He led the AUS in rebounding in each of his four seasons.
