"I knew they have great kids here. They played against those six seniors every day in practice.
"It's a different mentality but they are stepping up and understanding what they have to do.
"I want to take this program to the same level that Gary took it.
"He took it to the regional title, the conference title, and the state championship game. That is what this program is about."
Garretson, meanwhile, is in his first year as head coach at Riverside.
He assisted on the team that won seven games last year, second most in school history. He hopes to take the Riverside program to new heights.
"I told the girls one day we are going to beat one of these teams we aren't suppose to," Garretson said. "We are going to shock somebody. I don't want to put a number on how many wins but I expect to win every game. We are making strides."
Garretson has a solid cornerstone in Brittany Wood, who had 16 points to go along with 17 rebounds and six blocks. Wood, just a sophomore, has posted a triple double in two of the Warriors six games.
Taliah Cashwell led a balanced SC attack with 15 points to go along with eight rebounds.
Also for the Black Eagles, Alliyah Webb added 11 points with Lina Villanueva and Alexia Wade right behind with 10 each.
