Graham named to Wooden Award watch list
Treveon Graham has had one heck of a career at VCU, a resume that earned him a selection to the Wooden Award’s preseason watch list today. Graham is one of 50 players nationally to earn the honor as the Wooden Award is handed out to the nation’s top player at the end of the season.
Graham earned Atlantic 10 First Team honors his junior season and was recognized on the league’s preseason First Team this year as well. The Temple Hills, MD native has averaged over 15 points the last two seasons (posted 15 in Friday’s opener against Tennessee as well) and is on pace to break Eric Maynor’s all-time scoring record at VCU.
The 6’6 G/F has made appearances at elite summer camps hosted by Lebron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul and made an appearance on USA Basketball’s World University Games team in 2013. He’s gone to three consecutive NCAA tournaments and hopes to be a part of the second class in school history to go to make four consecutive NCAA tournament appearances.
ESPN ranked Treveon Graham a 2-star recruit out of high school with offers from VCU, Northeastern and Cleveland State, but the Freight Train has played his way into NBA Mock Drafts and is currently projected as a second round selection by NBADraft.net.
