Jayvon Graves is the key to the Bulls future success

Recommended Posts

Guys,

As many of you already know, I've had opportunity to cover UB basketball closely this season. Last week, I did a story on Jeremy Harris and tonight, I posted a story on how Jayvon Graves is the key piece for the Bulls moving forward.

He's already averaging nearly 10 points per game as a sophomore and should only get better with time. He'll be heavily relied on as one of their key players the next two years.

With that said, I dropped by practice to speak with Nate Oats and Jayvon Graves about their expectations moving forward,

Here's the link if you'd rather read than watch the above video: Jayvon Graves critical to Buffalo's future success

This is Graves' team next year.  Can't wait to see how he is leading it

Totally agree about Graves. He has the "it" factor to his game. Hes already confident and in some of the biggest games in hostile environments hes stepped up and looked so calm doing so. Definitely going to be huge going forward but this year hes extremely important as a secondary scorer.

His growth from year 1 to year 2 has been great. You could see it coming late last February. He’s no doubt going to be one of the leaders on the team as he finishes his career. He’s got great all around game potential. 

And if you are getting impatient with Segu and Williams, look at Graves. His growth seemingly overnight is what we can hope and expect for the two freshmen. These kids aren’t one and doners, so growth and development is the name of the game.

Very nice improvement thus far.
