MBB: Green Gives MVC’s Top Performance


UNI sophomore guard AJ Green has been named Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.

Green averaged 26.5 points per game in two Valley wins last week as UNI won at Valparaiso and defeated Drake at home. Green shot 46 percent from the field, made eight three-pointers, recorded six rebounds and had six assists on the week.

Green finished with 19 points, going 7-of-20 from the field, in a win at Valparaiso. The reigning MVC Freshman of the Year returned to the McLeod Center on Saturday afternoon for one of his best performances of his career. Green finished with 34 points, going 12-of-21 from the field with six made three-pointers in front of a sold-out crowd.

Green and the rest of the Panthers will be back in action on Wednesday, February 12 when they take on the Redbirds of Illinois State. Wednesday’s game will tip off at 7 p.m.
