His performance helped Prievidza to a 25-11 record and a third place regular season finish.
In his senior collegiate season in 2016-17, Sitton, a Brush Prairie, Washington native, was the third leading scorer in the CanWest Conference and 11th leading scorer in U Sports, averaging 19.3 points per game for the University of Victoria. He also notched 6.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.8 steals per game.
Sitton was named to the All-Canada West Third Team for his efforts. In 2015-16, Sitton averaged 14.4 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. In 2014-15, he helped lead the Vikes to the CanWest championship and the semi finals of the CIS Final 8 Tournament.

Prievidza is excited to have Sitton back in the lineup for another season and sees him as a major piece for the club moving forward.
“Grant was a key player for us to re-sign for this upcoming season. He fits exactly what we are looking for as a person, teammate and player,” said Prievidza Head Coach, Ryan Pannone. “I really believe in his talent and I believe he will develop into a high-level player in Europe. Our plan is to play and develop him more as a 3 next season and play him similar to a Kyle Korver type of player.”
