The Daily Times' boys basketball blog

Saturday, December 24, 2011


Archbishop Carroll product Juan'ya Green is doing some pretty remarkable things at Niagara (4-8, 0-2). Take a look:

**19.1 points per game. That's what Green, the 2010-11 Daily Times Player of the Year, averages on a nightly basis -- good for 30th nationally and second among freshman.
**37.1 minutes per game. Part of the reason Green has been so effective is because he's staying in games. In 12 games for the Purple Eagles, he's yet to foul out. He ranks ninth nationally in playing time.

After reading those stats, you might wonder why Green -- a 6-3, 195-pound combo guard -- is at Niagara, in the MAAC. As a sophomore at Carroll, Green sprained his ankle and missed a couple games. As insignificant as that sounds, he fell off a lot of teams' recruiting radars because of it.

Either way, Green is making teams wish they had stuck around in Carroll's gym and recruited him. He's tearing it up at Niagara, and he got a well-deserved write-up from this week. Check it out.


You may have noticed Matt Chandik and Matt DeGeorge covering boys basketball games in the last few nights. (That's because I needed to use some vacation time around the holiday, or run the risk of losing it.)

Hey, they both did great jobs. So if you didn't read DeGeorge's write-up in Friday's paper on Upper Darby topping Garnet Valley, or Chandik's account in Saturday's paper on Interboro squeaking past Penncrest, here's your chance.
