RICHMOND, Va. - Because of the countless hours of dedication that the 12 student-athletes put in, the future of the VCU basketball program is very bright.
Two of those student-athletes were honored on Tuesday as junior Juvonte Reddic and sophomore Treveon Graham were recognized as part of the National Association of Basketball Coaches' All-District squads. Reddic was named to the first team, while Graham earned a spot on the second team.
Both players were named to the Atlantic 10 Second Team earlier this month with Reddic also earning A-10 All-Tournament team accolades.
Reddic finished the year with a team-high 11 double-doubles and became the 32nd player in school history to reach 1,000 career points with his 21-point performance against Akron in the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Winston-Salem, N.C. native ranked second on the squad with 14.6 points per night, while leading the team with 8.1 board per night. His 56.9 field-goal percentage ranked 19th in the country and was the sixth-highest single-season mark in school history.
Graham had a breakout sophomore season for the Black & Gold, leading the squad with 15.1 points per night, the ninth-highest single-season mark in school history for a sophomore. He ranked in the top-10 in the conference in scoring and top-15 in rebounding (5.8 rpg).
The Temple Hills, Md. native scored in double-figures in 31 of VCU's 36 games, including seven 20-plus point performances.
Selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC, these student-athletes represent the finest basketball players across America. The 242 student-athletes, from 24 districts, are eligible for the NABC Coaches' Division I All-America teams.
