A Clemson men’s basketball player took to Instagram to describe his bizarre injury.
Senior guard Brevin Galloway said he woke up from a nap and saw that his ‘balls and nut sack exploded.’
Yes, you read that correctly.
“So this morning I went to lift, I came back, I took a nap, I woke up from my nap, and my balls and my nut sack were exploded,” Galloway explained.
“Now, I go to the doctor, I have surgery three hours later, my balls are reduced to the normal size.”
“I don’t know what happened to my balls. I guess they were trying to be like basketballs. But we made it,” he added.
“Now I’m going to be spoiled for the next 48 hours and I will be back in a uniform shortly.”
Watch Galloway explain his injury:
From Instagram, it sounds like Brevin Galloway will miss at least the next two games for Clemson, for uhhh, a medical reason. I’ll let him explain.

The university called Galloway’s injury an “abdominal issue.”
The New York Post reported:
Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported that Brad Brownell, the Tigers’ head coach, replied with a “no comment” when asked about Galloway’s post. Galloway tweeted the injury was the “worst pain I’ve ever experienced” and captioned in his Instagram Story that he would be out the next seven days.
This is Galloway’s sixth year of playing college basketball. He started out at the College of Charleston for four years before transferring to Boston College. There, in 2021-22, he started five games for the Eagles, appeared in 23 total and averaged 8.3 points per game.
But over the summer, he transferred again. This time, he jumped to an ACC school closer to his hometown of Anderson, South Carolina and latched on with the Tigers. He has become a full-time starter in Clemson’s lineup — averaging 10.6 points per game and hitting 3-pointers at a 33 percent clip, helping the Tigers to a better-than-expected start entering the bulk of Atlantic Coast Conference play.
Just got off the phone with Clemson coach Brad Brownell about Brevin Galloway’s latest IG post.
“No comment.” 😅

As The Post and Courier explained in 2021, Clemson University required proof of COVID-19 inoculation to opt out of COVID restrictions.
Clemson University will require proof of vaccination for students and staff who want to be exempt from wearing masks, weekly testing and mandatory quarantine that has been the resting state of campus life for a year now.
The requirement for proof of vaccine goes into effect June 1.
The university announced the easing of restrictions in a statement on May 21 after reviewing the latest guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the state Department of Health and Environmental Control.
Galloway’s strange injury may remind readers of rapper Nicki Minaj’s concerns about COVID-19 jab side effects.
Minaj said her cousin’s friend’s testicles became swollen after taking the experimental shot.
“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied,” Minaj tweeted in 2021.
