At 6-foot-11, 265-lbs, Garza also pulled down nine boards per contest while also swatting 2.2 shots per contest. A willing passer as well, Garza is the total package and has been every bit as dominant as expected coming into the season.
The No. 3 Hawkeyes are scheduled to play No. 1 Gonzaga on Saturday night in a Herculean matchup. It will be interesting to see how Drew Timme and company attempt to handle Garza. If it can be done at all.
