Garrison
Hello my name is Travis Garrison (203-F-84, agency: Edge Sports, college: Maryland).I am currently playing ball in Ukraine for Khimik-OPZ Yuzny basketball team.I also played here the 2nd half of 2009/2010 season.This year we are currently in last place,but things are looking on the up and up for us.We are playing a lot better now,and we are going to win more games and move up in our league.We lost a tough one last night in OT,but proud of the effort we gave by continuing to fight to the end.We have a good team,once we fix a few things we will be just fine.We are also playing in Eurochallenge and is currently 1-1,we have a game against Ventspils which will be our 2nd time playing them.We lost to them the first time,but I think things will be much different this time around.It's a long season so we have time to turn things around as long as we stay positive and keep pushing.

I am married,but my family is back in the U.S which is difficult for my wife and I.I have a son and we are raising her younger brother who is 5,so being away from them can be tough sometimes.But we play like every 2 or 3 days and practice twice a day so that takes my mind off of missing them a little.When I get home and is by myself is when it hits me,but I am doing this for them so that keeps me going.I am close with the players on my team and the Americans which makes things a lot better too.When you have teammates that are close and get along,it makes being away from home not so bad.But hopefully I will see them soon.

Well I will let you all know how things turn out for us in this next game in Eurochallenge.God Bless.
