KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Dorian Green on Wednesday hauled in yet another academic honor to cap his stellar career at Colorado State when the former Rams point guard was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court.
The NABC released the annual list Wednesday, commending more than 700 student-athletes from nearly 300 institutions at every level of NCAA and NAIA competition.
Green, a native of Lawrence, Kan., earned second-team all-Mountain West honors as a senior in 2012-13, ranking second on the team averaging 13.0 points per game while leading the Rams to a program-best 26-9 record. He paced the Rams with 124 assists during his final season, and poured in a season-high 26 points to lead CSU to an 84-72 victory over Missouri in the NCAA Tournament second round, before the squad fell to eventual national champion Louisville in third-round action.
A Capital One Academic All-District honoree in 2013, Green’s focus on academics was evident throughout his career as he earned a degree in Health and Exercise Science, graduating in May with a 3.43 cumulative grade-point average to earn academic all-MW honors.
Green finished his playing career at CSU among the program’s all-time best on the hardwood, playing in a school-record 130 career games and leading the squad to 81 victories and four straight postseason appearances during his time in a Rams’ uniform. He ranks No. 6 all-time in career scoring (1,464 points), fourth in career assists (373), fifth in career free-throws made (385) and third in career three-pointers (197).
To be eligible for recognition, a student-athlete must be a junior or senior academically, having spent at least on year at his current institution, while closing the 2012-13 academic year with a GPA of 3.2 or higher.
