Deflected the ball out-of-bounds off a Gaucho, and recorded his lone steal throughout the final two minutes of UC Davis' game vs. UCSB (1/29); those extra possessions helped the Aggies increase their lead to four points with :34 remaining in the game (one they eventually won by six)...

Dished a season-high seven assists against Rosemont HS... Had six assists in at least 10 games as a junior... Earned honor roll accolades every quarter and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

PERSONAL: Born in Sacramento, California... Majoring in economics... Parents are Sebastian and Darlene Graham... Favorite facility he has played in is Sacramento's Sleep Train Pavilion... Before every game he kisses his hands, touches his shoes where his grandfather's name is and points up to the sky... Would play badminton at UC Davis if not for basketball...

Best players he faced were "everyone I went head to head against daily at Sac High"... His father, who played football, is both his sports and non-sports hero... If he could change anything about his sport, it would be "to take everyone 6-5 and above out."
