What’s “Hot” in the Pac-10?

Jeremy Green

Green is struggling with consistency this season and was particularly unimpressive through the first half of Pac-10 Conference play. Green who was touted as Stanford’s best offensive player entering the season was averaging just 11.6 points per game through the first half of the conference schedule. In those games Green shot 31.7 percent from the floor and 32.1 percent from behind the three point arc. He shot the ball well from distance (43.8 percent) during the non-conference schedule, but only eclipsed the 40 percent mark once through the first nine games of the conference slate. However, the second time through the conference schedule is proving to be more to Green’s liking. In the four games since the half way point, Green is averaging 23 points per game and recorded his first double-double of the season. He is also shooting the ball well from the floor (52.7 percent), from three (55.6 percent) and from the foul line (86.4 percent).
