Since Graham first arrived at UC Davis he has represented the program in a first-class manner, has gone out of his way to recognize the support of donors, fans and friends of the program and truly embodies Aggie Pride. He represents the team, department, school and community with integrity.


UC Davis men’s basketball is the only athletics program (out of 23 teams) recognized by the UC Davis Community Resource Center for its extensive outreach efforts both in and around Davis. Whether it’s a food drive, toy drive, a school visit as part of the team’s reading program, or helping the coaching staff organize an orphanage visit during its recent Costa Rica Foreign Tour, Graham is a key reason why his team has set the standard for others with regard to community service.


Through his hard work, leadership and dedication to the program, Graham played a key role in helping UC Davis win its first-ever Big West Conference title. Last season, conference coaches recognized his effort by bestowing the Best Hustle Award to the senior guard. Graham also collected his first All-Big West Honorable Mention award as an Aggie last season.
