Austin Peay State University Men’s Basketball fortifies backcourt adding Fred Garmon as new Point Guard
Clarksville, TN - Austin Peay State University men’s basketball continued to fortify its backcourt by adding 5-11 point guard Fred Garmon, who played the last two seasons at Mineral Area Junior College in Park Hills, MO.
As a freshman, the Kennett, Mo., native averaged 7.1 points per game along 4.3 assists and 2.1 steals at Mineral Area.
