Green will transfer to Hofstra following his departure from Niagara, according to The Buffalo News.

Green will follow coach Joe Mihalich, who recently moved to Hofstra after a long and successful stint with the Purple Eagles. Mihalich will take his best player with him, as Green averaged 16.5 points and 4.9 assists per game during his sophomore season. Per NCAA rules, however, Green will have to sit out one season.

Green has been granted his transfer request to leave Niagara University following the departure of coach Joe Mihalich, who recently moved into the coaching position at Hostra, The Buffalo News reports.

It's not certain where Green is headed yet, but he's from Philadelphia and seems to have done enough at Niagara that one of the bigger schools there might want to give him a look. Green was the Purple Eagles' best player, averaging 16.5 points and 4.9 assists per game. It's been an awful offseason for Niagara, which has now lost its long-time and highly effective coach plus a guy who had a chance to be Conference Player of the Year, all in a matter of weeks.

Over the last two games, Green has put 52 points in wins over Fairfield and Marist on 19 of 29 shooting. That includes two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, eights assists, and six steals.

Green was the MAAC's Rookie of the Year last season, and with the recent hot streak his numbers are again filling out the stat sheet, namely his 17.0 scoring average, 4.5 assists per game, and 1.7 steals per game. The Purple Eagles play a fast-paced style that is typically fantasy friendly to the team's top players, so the good news should continue for Green during MAAC play.

Green has been named the MAAC's Rookie of the Year after a regular season where he averaged 17.5 points per game, 4.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.8 steals for Niagara. Green recorded 27 double-digit scoring performances during his freshman season and was named MAAC Rookie of the Week twice, The Buffalo News reports.

We imagine the voting wasn't even close, as Green was better than most freshmen in the entire country. He's a great guy to own in college keeper leagues, as he was recruited far above the MAAC level before a knee injury in high school knocked him off most of the bigger schools' radars. He also has three seasons left with one of the youngest teams in the country, plus coach Joe Mihalich likes to run a fast-paced offense.

Green, the nation's No. 2 freshman scorer, added 21 and five assists in Wednesday's win over Maryland-Baltimore County, The Buffalo News reports.

Green is averaging 19.2 points per game, 1.6 steals per game, and 1.8 three-pointers per game through 13 contests. Those numbers may slip a little with Niagara getting back to better health and having a deeper roster, but on most nights Green will still be the Purple Eagles' leading scorer, and he'll help across a number of other non-scoring categories.

Green, a freshman, has become Niagara's main scorer, with 60 combined points in the team's two losses this weekend.

Green plays in a system that likes to push and get a lot of shots off, so it looks like he might be a decent find if your league uses MAAC players. He's also Niagara's leading assist guy, with 2.9 per game, and is fifth in rebounding at 4.0 per game, while also chipping in with 1.5 steals per game.
