JBU Secures JUCO Transfer Green

Siloam Springs, Ark. (April 25, 2006) — The John Brown Golden Eagles signed Alex Green from North Platte Community College (Neb.) this week. Green, a 5-10 point guard from Baton Rouge, La., averaged 8.2 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game for North Platte as a sophomore. He led the team in assists, steals, and minutes played.

John Brown head coach John Sheehy commented, “We were looking for someone to compliment Tyler Dees at the point guard position. Alex is a proven winner who really uses his passing skills to make his teammates better. I think he is a good fit for our program and brings a lot of experience with him as well.”

Green led North Platte to a 23-10 record and a Nebraska Conference championship in 2005-06, and the Knights advanced to the NJCAA Division I Region IX Tournament semi-finals. Green was named to the all-conference second team.
