Garza, a first-team All-American and All-B1G selection this season, had one of the most dominant years in college basketball. He averaged 23.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this year, while shooting at a 54.2 percent clip from the floor. He also posted an average of 1.8 blocks and 1.2 assists per contest.
Garza also totaled 15 double-doubles on the season and scored 20 points or more in 25 games.
Iowa was bound for the NCAA Tournament this season, finishing the regular season with a 20-11 record and an 11-9 record against B1G foes. Garza was considered by many to be the top big man in college basketball this past season.
