Keith Lee "Tiny" Gallon (born January 18, 1991) is an American former professional basketball player. He played college basketball for Oklahoma.
Gallon played in the 2009 McDonald's All-American Game. The 2009 game was held at the BankUnited Center on the University of Miami's Coral Gables campus. The game was played on April 1, 2009 and was nationally televised on ESPN. The All American Boys treated nearly 6,000 fans to one of the best All American Games in recent history. The high scoring, back-and-forth game kept everyone on the edge of their seats. It was not until Morgan Wootten Player of the Year Derrick Favors (Georgia Tech) slammed home an alley oop pass from Lance Stephenson, with just 40 seconds remaining, that the East Team felt in control.
Top contributors to the East victory were John R. Wooden MVP Award winner Derrick Favors, with 19 points and eight rebounds, and Dante Taylor (Pittsburgh), with 15 points and six rebounds. Lance Stephenson added a solid performance that consisted of 12 points, four rebounds, six assists and three steals. Peyton Siva (Louisville) put his name in the record books, as he compiled nine assists.
The West Team used a balanced offensive attack that resulted with six players scoring in double figures. Keith Gallon (Oklahoma) was the top performer for the West Squad in both points (20) and rebounds (7), while Naismith Sportsmanship Award winner Avery Bradley, Jr. (Texas) tallied 15 points and six rebounds. John Henson (North Carolina) shot 70% from the field, which led to 14 points.
The East Team came back from an eight-point halftime deficit, due in large part to strong second half shooting (60%) and a 19-point advantage from their bench players. The 113–110 victory increases the East's lead to 18–14 in the overall series. [ circular reference ]
