As a Freshman in 2012-13:
One of three players to start all 30 games, second on team with 2.1 assists per game, third on team with 8.8 points per game and 26.9 minutes per game ... Led GW, fourth in Atlantic 10 and 21st in NCAA Division I with 2.3 steals per game ... Set new single-season program steals record for a freshman with 68, eclipsing Carl Elliott's mark of 60 in 2003-04 ... Reached double-digit scoring 11 times ... Tallied 16 points on perfect 6-of-6 shooting, including a pair of three-pointers, in 82-54 rout of Charlotte (1/26/13) ... Scored 18 - including stretch of 11 consecutive points for team - of career-high 24 points during second-half rally in loss at Bradley (12/4/12) ... Scored all nine points in final 10:46, including game-deciding steal and two free throws with less than 10 seconds left, in 54-53 victory at James Madison (11/28/12) ... Scored 13 points in his GW debut against Youngstown St. (11/10/12), most points in a GW rookie debut since Tamal Forchion scored 14 points vs. Marshall in Nov. 2001.

HIGH SCHOOL
Garino, a 6-foot-5-inch guard/forward from Mar del Plata, Argentina, guided Montverde (Fla.) Academy to a 23-4 overall record and a No. 9 ranking in the final ESPNHS Powerade Fab 50 in 2011-12. 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.

Garino hails from the same school that produced former GW big man Joseph Katuka and previously played for Colonials' assistant coach Kevin Sutton at Montverde. 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. He will be looked on to play both shooting guard and small forward at GW.

"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."

PERSONAL
Patricio Garino Gullotta ... Nickname is 'Pato' ... Born May 17, 1993 in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina ... Son of Alicia Gullotta and Oscar Garino ... Has two older sisters Lorena and Natalia ... Aspires to play professionally in the NBA or Europe.
