Former Prior Lake standout Dawson Garcia transferring from Marquette to North Carolina

Prior Lake native Dawson Garcia announced Thursday that he is transferring from Marquette to North Carolina, where he will team with another Minnesotan in Kerwin Walton.

The 6-11 Garcia averaged 13 points and 6.6 rebounds per game last season as a freshman at Marquette. He earned Big East All-Freshman Team honors and shot 35.6% percent from three-point range.

Garcia tested the NBA Draft waters but pulled out to maintain his college eligibility. Marquette went 13-14 last season, and changed coaches from Steve Wojciechowski to Shaka Smart.
