Some terrible news is coming out of Nashville today.
Garland has quietly been one of the best freshman in college basketball this season, not to mention one of the best overall players in the SEC.
A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Garland was the No. 1 point guard in the 2018 high school class and is a projected lottery pick in the 2019 NBA draft. He was actually someone the Kentucky Wildcats recruited, though it was really a two-horse race between Vanderbilt and the Duke Blue Devils.
So far this season, Garland is averaging 16.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game while shooting 47.8 percent from 3-point range. He scored 33 points during a recent win over Liberty.
Hopefully, this is just a small setback that doesn’t prevent Garland from reaching his dreams.
