On Garrison: Powerful post player who can face the basket, rebound and defend in the interior ... Maryland's top returning rebounder at 6.5 boards per game ... soft-shooting big man who continues to take his game inside ... a three-year starter who has become a valuable part of Maryland's frontcourt rotation ... one of the ACC's top shotblockers after three seasons among league leaders ... has been working diligently on all areas of his game during the off-season.
Williams On Garrison: "Travis has to establish a mindset for the season. The basketball season is a long one and you have to be tough enough to deal with that for the duration. Travis is a great shooter for a big man, and he has had some unbelievable games where he's done it all. This year as a senior, Travis has to be more consistent throughout the season, and rebound and play great defense even when his shot is not falling."
