Grant is a native of Lenex, Kansas and played for 2 years in Lincoln University Jefferson City, Missouri. Prior to Lincoln, Grant was with Eastern Wyoming.

Grant has had an outstanding college career and while playing with Lincoln he finished off his college career with a superb senior season where he averaged 11 points and 4 rebounds while logging 29 minutes.

Playing in the Division II Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association, Grant led to team to its first winning record since 1988-1987, its best season since 2000-2001 and reached the semi-final of the conference tournament this past year.

He was the first player in Lincoln University history to be named to the Google Cloud Academic All-American first team in his senior year.

Grant plays the 3/4 position but with his versatility and smart inside game he can move to the 5 if and when needed. A good shooter with a 42% average from 3 point range and 55% inside the arc he is a great fit for the team, he also sports a smashing beard!!!!!

We wish Grant the very best for the upcoming season and we look forward to some great displays from him in the Moycullen colours.

The new season is fast approaching with our first home game on Saturday 21st Septemer as we host Maree to kick off what will helpfully be another cracking year of top class basketball.
