SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State sophomore point guard
Garrity, who received the honor for the first time in his career, shared this week's with Northern Arizona's DeWayne Russell.
In the Hornets' two wins last week, Garrity averaged 20.0 points, 6.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 33.5 minutes per game while shooting a robust 69.2 percent (9-13) from the field, 62.5 percent (5-8) from the three-point line and 94.4 percent (17-18) from the free throw line. He scored a career-high 21 points vs. Bakersfield, and added a game-high 19 points at Utah. In fact, those performances were the top two scoring efforts of his young career.
In the win over Utah, Garrity scored 11 of his 19 points during the final 9:07 to help spark a 29-13 game-closing run. It was his jumper at the 1:29 mark of the second half that gave the Hornets a 72-71 lead, their first advantage in over 29 minutes of game clock. Thirteen of his points came in the second half, and he finished the game shooting 5-of-7 from the field, 3-of-4 from the arc and a perfect 6-of-6 from the free throw line. Four of those free throws came during the final 4:42 of the contest.
In the win over Bakersfield, Garrity's 21 points came with seven assists in 31 minutes. He shot 4-of-6 from the field, 2-of-4 from distance and 11-of-12 from the free throw line. He went 8-for-8 from the charity stripe during the final 2:32 to help ice the Hornet win.
Garrity, who was named the Big Sky's Freshman of the Year and finished seventh in the nation in assists per game last year, already has combined for 21 assists with just six turnovers through three games. He has assisted on 26 percent of the team's made buckets, and is shooting at least 50 percent from both the field and the three-point line. He is also 19-for-20 (.950) from the free throw line.
Sacramento State (3-0) will attempt to win its first four games of the season for just the second time in school history when the Hornets host UC Davis tonight at 7:35 p.m. was named the Big Sky Conference's Men's Basketball co-Player of the Week after leading the Hornets to a 2-0 record last week, including a 74-71 road win at Utah, and an 85-67 home victory over CSU Bakersfield.
