Forward- Dan Garvin

Sophomore Dan Garvin appeared in 27 games as a freshman last year for the Bulldogs and started six of them. He is a force on the defensive side of the floor, last year posting 36 blocks which led the team and was good enough for eighth best in the conference.

He averaged six points and just under five rebounds per game last season and as one of the most experienced sophomores on the team, he will look to improve on those numbers.
