Garmaker was a 6'3" guard/forward from the University of Minnesota. He was a 1955 consensus All-America for the Golden Gophers, along with Sihugo Green (Duquesne), Tom Gola (LaSalle), Bill Russell (San Francisco) and Dick Ricketts (Duquesne). He was drafted by the NBA's Minneapolis Lakers twice (in 1954 and again in 1955) and joined the team for the 1955–56 NBA season. In his four-and-a-half seasons with the Lakers, Garmaker appeared as an NBA All-Star four times.
