Belizean plays in Italian Basketball League


According to reports reaching the desk, the 28-year-old Garnett is now signed through June 2006 with the ?Pallacanestro Varese? ball club of the Italian ?Serie A? League, which is the top league in Italy, made up of 18 teams. Garnett is no stranger to playing overseas. This is his third year overseas, having played for ?Sicilia Messina? in 2003, and in 2004 for ?Benetton Treviso,? who lost in the semi-final to ?Armani Jeans-Milano? by the score of 61-57.


Garnett, according to Italian scouts, makes good use of his 6?4? body frame and is regarded as a slasher/good finisher type of player. Last year he averaged 18.9 ppg in 37 minutes of play for ?Benetton Treviso?, improving on his 14.7 ppg with ?Sicilia Messina? in 2003. His career high is 38 points, which he pumped in against ?Pompea Napoli? on the night of March 14, 2004; and his second most points was against ?Cast Group Varese? earlier this year on March 26. He scorched them for 30 points.


Marlon?s season gets underway on October 9, 2005, as his ?Pall.Varese? team takes to the road against ?Air Avellino? at the Palasport Del Mauro arena. On October 13, 2005 Garnett and his team will play their home opener against ?Viola R Calabria? at their home arena – the Palaignis Arena. That game will be aired on Sky Sport. Their third game will be played on October 16, and will be against ?Climamio Bologna?. While all the games on the schedule are important, one that Marlon will anxiously be awaiting will be played on the December 28 against his former team, ?Benetton Treviso?, at the ?Palaverde Coliseum?.


?Pall. Varese? and Marlon Garnett are being coached by Ruben Magnano and assisted by Daniel Beltramo. We here at the desk wish them well in their 2005 campaign.
