Brock Gardner Set to Transfer

Liberty men's basketball head coach Ritchie McKay announced Wednesday that Brock Gardner will be transferring.

"We respect Brock's decision to move on and we cannot thank him enough for his dedication to the program," McKay said. "Brock is a great person and we wish him nothing but the best in his future."

As a freshman, Gardner played in all 35 games including eight starts.  A native of Chandler, Ariz., Gardner proved to be a constant scoring threat off the bench for Liberty, recording six double-digit scoring games. For the season, Gardner averaged 5.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per during 18.0 minutes on the court.

One of Gardner's best offensive performances came in December when he scored a season-high 18 points against Clarks Summit, shooting 6-7 from the field. The freshman also pulled down a season-high six rebounds three times throughout the year.

Gardner played his prep basketball at Tri-City Christian Academy where he was a two-time state champion and two-time state runner-up. In his senior season, Gardner was voted the Player of the Year.
