Niagara's Green Earns Top Mid-Major Frosh Honor

Here's a nice honor for a player from a conference team, just passed along to your scribe by the Niagara's sports information office ...

Niagara's freshman guard Juan'ya Green has been named the's mid-major level Freshman of the Year.

The Philadelphia native led the Purple Eagles in scoring, assists, steals, field goals and free throws while starting in every game this past season.

He was the nation's second-leading freshman scorer (17.7 points per game), and his scoring average was third in the MAAC. He was also third in the conference in assists (4.5 per game) and led the league in steals (1.9 per contest).

Green also set the school's freshman single-season record for points (585), field goals made (188), free throws made (148) and steals (63).

The individual honor is a just reward for a terrific season.
