GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Green Bay men’s basketball senior Vincent Garrett has received an NCAA Legislative Relief Waiver and will be eligible to compete for the Phoenix in the 2013-14 season. Garrett transferred to Green Bay following his junior campaign at Rutgers University.

The NCAA’s ruling not only allows Garrett to be eligible to play this season, but the 6-foot-6 guard will also suit up and compete during Green Bay’s foreign tour to the Bahamas from Aug. 25-30.

“I’m happy for Vince that he was granted this waiver and will be able to play this season,” said head men’s basketball coach Brian Wardle. “Vince joined our program this summer and has displayed many positive characteristics on and off the court. He has fit in immediately in the locker room, and on the court his experience, toughness and ability will be welcomed additions.”

Garrett, a Chicago native, is a 2010 graduate of Marshall High School, where he was a teammate of current Phoenix players Keifer Sykes and Alfonzo McKinnie.

After graduating from Marshall, Garrett started his collegiate career at Lee Junior College in Baytown, Texas, under head coach Roy Champagne. An All-Region South Zone First Team pick as a sophomore in 2011-12, the athletic, scoring wing averaged 16 points, six rebounds and two assists per game and helped the Rebels to a 19-12 overall record.

Garrett signed a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to play at Rutgers in April of 2012, and appeared in 12 games for the Scarlet Knights as a junior last season, averaging 1.5 points per contest.

As a senior at Marshall High School under head coach Henry Cotton, he averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds per game to earn All-Public honors and help the Commandos to a 28-7 record. Along with Sykes and McKinnie, Garrett aided Marshall to an appearance in the 2010 city championship game, a regional title and a third-place finish in the Class 3A State Tournament. He also posted a strong performance in the 2010 Chicago High School All-Star Classic, registering 12 points and nine rebounds.

Garrett was highly-touted coming out junior college, reportedly receiving scholarship offers from Oregon State, Texas A&M and UNLV in addition to Rutgers.
