Former Birmingham-Southern College standout Ander Galfsky has been named Assistant Director of Men’s Basketball Operations at Campbell University and Kenneth White has been promoted to Director of Basketball operations, head coach Kevin McGeehan announced Monday.

Galfsky, a 2015 Birmingham-Southern graduate, joins the Fighting Camel staff after serving the past year as an athletics department graduate assistant at Auburn University.

At Campbell, Galfsky’s primary duties will include handling travel logistics, film exchange and video analysis of games and practices.  In addition, he will assist with the organization of Campbell’s basketball camps, alumni events, scheduling on campus official visits, statistics and analytics analysis.

“Ander will be an outstanding addition to our staff, said McGeehan.  “He is incredibly well-rounded for a young guy in our profession.  His passion and desire to work and learn stood out as we went through the interview process.  He will immediately help us continue to grow as a program.”

While at Auburn in 2015-16, Galfsky attended all basketball practices and became proficient in performance analysis software programs such as SportsCode while assisting with recruiting databases.  He also served as the department’s game/event manager for gymnastics and women’s tennis while assisting in game-day operations for football, volleyball, men’s tennis and softball.  In addition, Galfsky worked with the Auburn football Lettermen Club while pursuing his master’s degree in adult education.

“I am excited to join the Campbell University Basketball staff and this incredible school,” said Galfsky.  “It’s an honor to work for and with Coach McGeehan and the rest of the staff. I felt there was no better program to learn and grow from as a young basketball coach. I look forward to the success that lies ahead for Campbell basketball.”

During his collegiate playing career at Birmingham-Southern, Galfsky helped lead the Panthers to a SCAC regular season championship and NCAA Division III national tournament berth in 2012.

As an undergraduate, Galfsky served as 15U and 16U assistant coach for the Nike/Adidas Southeast Elite AAU team in Birmingham.  He also spent the summer of 2012 coaching the Lausanne Collegiate School JV team.

His coaching experience also includes camp counselor responsibilities at Birmingham-Southern, Lausanne Collegiate, the University of Mississippi and with the Memphis Grizzlies.

A native of Memphis, Tenn., Galfsky was an all-state performer at Lausanne Collegiate, where he played for head coach Kenneth White, who is now the Director of Basketball Operations at Campbell.  He graduated with a degree in history and secondary education from Birmingham-Southern.

White is in his second year on the Fighting Camel staff in 2016-17 and his first season as Director of Basketball Operations.  He joined the program as Director of Player Development in September 2015.

In his role as Director of Operations, White is in charge of internal scheduling, serves as liaison to the compliance office, assists with scouting and game preparation, oversees team managers, handles equipment orders and ticketing needs.

Before moving to Buies Creek, White spent the previous six years as head boys basketball coach at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, Tenn.

While at Lausanne, White led his team to the 2013 state championship, two regional champions and a pair of district titles.  Seven of his players went on to play college basketball, including 2013 Tennessee Mr. Basketball Cameron Payne, who was the No.-14 selection in the 2015 NBA draft.

White has an extensive basketball history, encompassing years of coaching and playing experience on the high school and collegiate levels. He played at national powerhouse and seven-time national champion, Oak Hill Academy, under legendary coach Steve Smith, where his team was ranked as high as No.-2 in the Nation by USA Today.
