NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Davidson’s Kellan Grady has been named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week for games played Nov. 6-11, as announced by the league office Monday afternoon.
A sophomore from Boston, Mass., Grady finished the first week of the 2018-19 college basketball season averaging 23.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game, while shooting 53.1 percent (17-32) from the floor and going 8-of-10 at the charity stripe.
