Shaka: Graham could be VCU's top scorer

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

When Shaka Smart was recruiting Treveon Graham, he told him that he could break VCU's scoring record. And that was not just some recruiting ploy.

While it is not official, Graham is expected to step in to the departed starting spot of Bradford Burgess. Smart says that the sophomore is the perfect fit and can do much of what Burgess was able to do for the Rams.

A sophomore replacing one of the best players ever to where the Black & Gold?

Smart says that Graham is ready. 

He didn't play ready as a freshman.  Graham was 1 for his first 16 shots from the field, and was admittedly very nervous.  But he rebounded to average 7 points per game, and score in double figures 8 times.

Now he feels comfortable and confident that he can do what is asked for him in his sophomore season. 

Graham has a lot of work to do, to score over 1900 points and break Eric Maynor's scoring record.  But Shaka will settle for Tre being a dependable scorer, and helping the team to wins this season.
