BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Harding senior guard Matt Garner received his first career Gulf South Conference West Division Player of the Week honors released by the conference office Wednesday. Garner guided Harding to a 75-70 win over Missouri S&T this past Monday night.
Garner, a Jonesboro, Ark. native, came off the bench to lead the Bisons with a career-high 19 points along with five rebounds. He also shot 88.9 percent from the field and 75.0 percent from the three-point range. Garner netted seven straight points in a three-minute span in the second half, bringing the Bisons back from a one-point deficit en route to a lead that Missouri S&T never relinquished.
The Bisons will be back in action Thursday, hosting Northeastern State at 7:30 p.m., in the Rhodes Field House.
