Garrison tallied 23.2 points per game, tied for tenth in Kansas. Garrison, who stands 6-foot-1, also grabbed 5.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.3 steals per contest. Little River reached the state tournament for the first time since 2000. He helped Little River average 57.4 points per game. Garrison scored 534 points this season in 23 games. He was also 82 percent fro the foul line, 41 percent from three pointer and 51 percent from the field.
Garrison is an all-state athlete in three sports with an entire senior season left.
The Little River Booster Club would like to congratulate the Redskins on a Final Four finish in 2020. We are very proud of you. Also congrats to Jayden Garrison on being named the 2A SIK POY!
