CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Senior center Catrina Green (Greensboro, N.C.) has been named to the Big South All-Conference Second Team for the second time in her career while also earning a spot on the league’s All-Academic Team, announced conference officials Sunday.
Green has put together one of the finest individual careers in program history over the last four years, becoming the first player in the school’s Division I era to record 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds with a 24-point, 14-rebound performance in her final game in Paul Porter Arena on Saturday.
A native of Greensboro, N.C., Green is in the midst of perhaps her best season as a Runnin’ Bulldog, averaging career-highs of 14.5 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game while knocking down 56.3 percent of her attempts from the floor. The senior center as totaled 1,232 points, 1,004 rebounds, 161 blocks and 101 steals in her career, ranking first all-time in boards, second in blocks and 12th in scoring.
Green is just two points shy of moving into a tie for 11th on the program’s all-time scoring list, and 14 away from becoming the first player to crack the top 10 since current assistant coach Dominique Hudson accomplished the feat in 2011. The two-time all-conference selection has been named Big South Choice Hotels Player of the Week three times this season, receiving her third such honor earlier Sunday.
