Graham needs 581 points to break Eric Maynor’s all-time scoring record at VCU. He posted a career-best 533 this past season.

Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook has released its list of All-Americans, a list that includes VCU senior star, Treveon Graham.

The likely Preseason A-10 Player of the Year, Graham returns for his senior season as the only conference player to return from the league’s First Team and from a conference that sent six teams to this past season’s NCAA tournament. Graham spent the summer bouncing from elite camp to elite camp, making stops at the Kevin Durant, Lebron James and Chris Paul camps in prepperation for a senior season in which he’ll attempt to become VCU’s all-time leading scorer, needing 581 points to break the record held by 2009 graduate, Eric Maynor.

Graham makes Blue Ribbon’s All-American Fourth team alongside the Texas’ Myles Turner, Arizona’s Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, UConn’s Ryan Boatwright and Gonzaga’s Kevin Pangos. Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky was picked as the yearbook’s Preseason Player of the Year with Duke’s Jahlil Okafor as the NCAA’s newcomer of the year.
