Nate Grimes: Bulldog athlete of the month

The Collegian staff has selected Nate Grimes as its Athlete of the Month.

Grimes had a stellar month of January with the men’s basketball team, averaging 12 points per game and 9.8 rebounds. He started the month on fire in a 73-53 blowout win against San Jose State, scoring 19 points on 9 of 14 shooting while grabbing 12 boards.

The Bulldogs finished January with a 6-2 record, including a close loss to then No. 6-ranked Nevada thanks in large part to Grimes posting 15 points and 11 rebounds against Nevada’s NBA-level talent.

Grimes led the Bulldogs by a wide margin in rebounds with 96 in January, and showed his dominance on the board and in the paint with a total of five double-doubles out of the ‘Dogs’ eight contests.
