DENVER — A basketball player from Colorado who just graduated from Grandview High School is about to start his first game in the NCAA Tournament. And he’s not a member of the Colorado Buffaloes.

Eric Garcia played at Grandview as well as in the Colorado Miners program. He’s going to play in the “Big Dance” as a starter for Wofford University out of South Carolina.

The number 15 seed Terriers are going to take on the number 2 seed Michigan Wolverines in Milwaukee Thursday.

For Garcia, this will be a reward and privilege that is well-deserved.
