Garrity Named All-American

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame senior forward Pat Garrity has been selected as a 1997-98 college basketball All-American by both the Associated Press and by Basketball Weekly. He was also picked as a second-team choice by The Sporting News

Garrity earned second-team honors from the AP and was a third-team selection by Basketball Weekly. He becomes the first Irish player to earn anything more than honorable mention notice since David Rivers in 1987-88 was named to one of three All-America teams by Basketball Weekly, Basketball Times and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Garrity led the Irish in scoring (23.2) and rebounding (8.3) in '97-'98, leading all BIG EAST Conference scorers and earning first-team all-BIG EAST honors by vote of the coaches. Despite playing only three seasons in the league, Garrity finished as the 15th-best scorer in the history of the BIG EAST (regular-season games only).

One of 10 finalists for the Naismith Award and one of 15 finalists for the Wooden Award, Garrity finished as the third-highest career scorer in Notre Dame basketball history with 2,085 points. He started all 111 games in his career, scored 20 or more points in 48 career games, scored in double figures in his last 46 games and in 85 of his last 88.
