Garrison dropped 19 points and 19 rebounds in the title game as the Saints lifted their first gold ball in program history.
So how did a Mississippi guy end up signing with a school in New Hampshire?
"Dartmouth came on pretty late. They came on after the summer. They called me, the coach talked to me for a good hour. At first I was a little timid about the place but once I visited I fell in love. I love the atmosphere, I love the coaches, I love the academic possibilities there. I know it's going to open a lot of doors after I finish playing basketball."
