He helped the Eagles to the championship game of the prestigious ESPN National High School Invitational, scoring 20 points and grabbing seven rebounds against Nevada's Findlay Prep in the title contest.

The Argentine competed for his native country's National Team in the 2011 U-19 World Championships, where he averaged 9.4 and 4.2 rebounds in nine games during the tournament for a team that reached the bronze medal game. Garino's international experience was highlighted by a 21-point effort for Argentina in an 81-76 victory over Croatia.

"Patricio is a stat-sheet stuffer," said Coach Lonergan. "He can have a great affect on the game without scoring a lot of points. He can guard several positions and has a great feel for the game."
