Malcolm Grant

Sports Administration


Grant maintains a 2.8 GPA in Sports Administration with a minor in African Studies. During his time at the University of Miami, Grant has been a UM Book Buster member for earning a 3.0 or better semester GPA. He has also been named to the Dean’s List for earning a 3.5 GPA or higher and to the Athletic Director’s honor roll for earning a 3.2 semester GPA or better.


Grant is a superb young man who has grown and matured into the truest definition of a student-athlete. His work ethic as well as his commitment to athletics, academics and his teammates is beyond reproach. Grant is known for being the player with the most positive and cheerful demeanor. From a freshman manager to a senior co-captain, Grant treats everyone in the program with an equal amount of respect.


Grant has been a volunteer at all of the UM Youth basketball camps from the summer of 2008 until the present. In his hometown of Brooklyn, NY, Grant ran a community basketball camp on his own. He hosted about 50 kids and taught them basketball drills and techniques. Grant fed homeless people through the Miami Rescue Mission during this past summer and also worked a basketball event for Alonzo Mourning.


As a junior, Grant was named to the All-ACC third team after finishing as just one of just two players to lead the ACC in as many as three different statistical categories, closing 2011 as the ACC’s leader in three-point field goal percentage (19th in the nation), free throw percentage (12th in program history, 51st in the nation) and three-point field goals per game (49th in the nation). He averaged a team-high 14.8 points, a team-high 3.2 assists and 1.8 rebounds per game, converting 41.8 percent from the field, 42.3 percent from long range — ninth-best in Miami history. Grant is the only Hurricane to start all 36 games last season, setting a Miami record, while his 1,165 minutes on the hardwood are third most by a Miami player in a single season.
