    Here’s the video from New Year’s Eve of Oklahoma freshman Tiny Gallon shattering the glass in a loss to Gonzaga. Jeff Goodman of FoxSports.com posted it on Twitter.

    And here’s  a link to a Rivals story I wrote a year ago on Gallon, who was inspired to lose 50 pounds after talking with Shaquille O’Neal and Chris Wilcox.

    “I can see myself in the future being as good as I want to be if I can dedicate myself,” Gallon said. “I talked to Chris Wilcox, I talked to Shaquille O’Neal and John Lucas. I’m working with John Lucas in the summer. They talked to me every time there, and said if I get right I can be one of those players.”
