GRAHAM EARNS ATLANTIC 10 CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONORS
RICHMOND, Va. – Junior Treveon Graham of the VCU men's basketball team has a quiet personality. That's mainly because he let's his game do the talking.

For the week, the Temple Hills, Md. native averaged 20 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and one steal per game. He shot 70-percent from the field and 71-percent from beyond the arc, while knocking down all seven of his free-throws.
In VCU's 79-66 win over Northeastern, Graham posted his second 20-plus point outing of the year with 24 points on 9-of-12 shooting, including a perfect 4-of-4 from long range. He also added eight rebounds and two assists in the victory.
Against Belmont, Graham chipped in 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting, while also corralling nine rebounds and dishing out three assists.
On the season, the junior leads the team in scoring (16.5) and rebounding (6.9), while shooting 46.2-percent from the field. He has scored in double-figures in all eight of VCU games this season.
Entering Thursday night's matchup with Eastern Kentucky, Graham is just 72 points away from joining the 1,000-point club.
