Albirex's Garrison collects award

Known for his knack for consistently putting points on the board, Niigata Albirex BB forward Matt Garrison did it again last weekend, helping his team sweep the Saitama Broncos and improve to 25-17 a week before the playoffs begin.

Garrison is the Circle K Sunkus Player of the Week, the bj-league announced on Tuesday.

Garrison made 6 of 11 3-pointers in the Albirex's 67-61 win on Saturday and finished with 19 points.

The 203-cm veteran had 17 points and nine rebounds in Niigata's 78-70, series-closing triumph.

Garrison, 34, is the league's two-time (and only) 3-Point Shootout champion, collecting All-Star weekend trophies in Ginowan, Okinawa Prefecture, and Niigata.
