Tony Gaffney (24, 2.04 m), who just graduated from the University of Massachusetts, signed today with Hapoel Galil/Gilboa for next season. He joins Gonzaga's Jeremy Pargo who signed during the weekend and Isiah Swann and Dion Dowell who continue from last year.

Gaffney transferred to Umass from the University of Boston, and played for the Minutemen in the last two years. As a senior he averaged 11.5 points, 10.2 rebounds (17th in the NCAA), 1.7 assists, 2.0 steals and 3.8 blocks, which ranked him third in the nation!

The Boston-born forward had 12 double-doubles and 30 games, and was one block short (15 pts, 18 rebs) from setting a rare triple double against Boston College. He was named Atlantic-10 defensive player of the year.

After going undrafted, Gaffney played for the world champions LA Lakers in the NBA's summer league, where he averaged 3.8 points and 2.8 boards in 16 minutes per game.
