GREENSBORO — Freedom High’s Adair Garrison, who helped the Patriots win 93 games in a four-year varsity basketball career, has been selected to play in the East-West All-Star Game.

GARRISON

Garrison, a 6-foot-1 center, averaged 12 points and nine rebounds last season when the Patriots were 11-1 in a season shortened by COVID-19.

She averaged nine points and 7.1 rebounds as a junior, when Freedom went 29-1, and averaged 9.6 points and 4.7 rebounds as a sophomore on a 30-2 team at Freedom.

Garrison, who has signed to play at Appalachian State, averaged 10.4 points and 6.9 rebounds as a freshman and Freedom went 23-5.

She was picked to play for the West in a game scheduled July 19 at the Greensboro Coliseum by West head coach Brad Mangum.

MANGUM

When selected as West head coach, Mangum was at West Caldwell but there were no East-West games last summer due to COVID-19.

Mangum left West Caldwell to become head coach at North Lincoln, guiding the Knights to a 3-11 record in a season cut short by the pandemic.
