Harry Gallatin
After playing high school basketball at Roxana High School and college basketball at Northeast Missouri State Teachers College (now Truman State University), Gallatin played nine seasons for the New York Knicks in the NBA from 1948 to 1957, as well as one final season with the Detroit Pistons in 1958. In 1954 Gallatin led the NBA in rebounding, and was named to the All-NBA First Team. Gallatin was named to the All-NBA Second Team in 1955. For his career, Gallatin played in seven NBA All-Star Games. He started his coaching career in 1962 with the St. Louis Hawks and was named NBA Coach of the Year in his first season. He later coached the New York Knicks for 63 games over two seasons as well. David Halberstam notes in Playing for Keeps, his biography of Michael Jordan, that NBA Commissioner David Stern idolized Harry Gallatin as a boy. Gallatin was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1991 as a player.

Harry's Career Stats

Bailey Howell
A 6'7" forward from Mississippi State University, he played 12 seasons (1959–1971) in the NBA as a member of the Detroit Pistons, Baltimore Bullets, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia 76ers. A six-time All-Star with 17,770 career points, he was elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1997. He won two NBA championships with the Boston Celtics. The best years of his career were during his time with the Bullets and the Celtics. Despite playing at the college level for only three years, Howell set and still holds Mississippi State records for single-game points scored, career scoring average, single-season and career free throws made, single-season and career free throws attempted, single-game free throw percentage, single-game rebounds, single-season rebounds, career rebounds, and single-season and career rebounding average. His scoring records are particularly impressive, since there was no three point line or shot clock at the time that he played. He is considered a legend to the Bulldog basketball faithful, and one of best-known players to have played at MSU. He is probably most known for his hook shot, rebounding ability, and work ethic as a player and person. After his career ended, he went to work with the Converse shoe company, particularly with the Converse All-Star. He resides in Starkville, Mississippi where he is very active in Mississippi State athletics fund-raising, specifically the Bulldog Club, an organized fund to pay for MSU athletic scholarships. He currently serves as an elder for the Starkville Church of Christ. On February 7, 2009 Howell's jersey (#52) was retired at halftime of the Mississippi State versus University of Arkansas game. Bailey is the first MSU basketball player to have his jersey retired. A banner displaying his number and years of play is now on permanent display in the Humphrey Coliseum. The Bailey Howell Award is given annually to best collegiate basketball player in the state of Mississippi. The bronze statue that is awarded each year was designed by J. Kim Sessums. The gymnasium at Middleton (TN) High School bears his name.
