Marquette Signs 295-pound Center


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marquette coach Buzz Williams says he's signed prep center Davante Gardner to a letter of intent.

The 6-foot-8, 295-pound Gardner played three years at King's Fork High School in Suffolk, Va. and was voted the city's player of the year. His team won 48 straight in district play.

Gardner averaged 22.2 points, 12.2 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.

He will join D.J. Newbill and junior college player of the year Jae Crowder in Marquette's most recent recruiting class.
