Kansas junior guard Marcus Garrett was named the 2020 Naismith Men's Defensive Player of the Year on Wednesday.

Garrett, who was also named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, ranked second on the Jayhawks in both steals (1.8) and rebounds (4.5) while posting 2.4 defensive win shares.

It's just the third time that the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year Award has been handed out. Former Washington standout and current Philadelphia 76ers guard Matisse Thybulle took home the honor last year, while West Virginia's Jevon Carter won the inaugural award in 2018.
