BREN EVENTS CENTER - Jerry Green, UC Irvine's all-time scoring
leader, received a vote of confidence from the media as he awaits the NBA
Draft in June.
Green has been named honorable mention All-American by Basketball
America, a monthly publication based in North Carolina.
He and Tony Brown from Utah State were the only selections from the
Big West Conference. Green was named honorable mention All-American by
the Associated Press for the second straight season in March.
The Anteater scoring sensation led UCI and the Big West in scoring at
20.3 points per game this season. He finished his career with 1,993
points, and ranks sixth in Big West history with that total.
He led the Anteaters in scoring 20 times this season, and started each
of the 116 games in his UCI career to break Ben McDonald's school record
(114) for consecutive starts.
Green scored in double figures 93 times, leading the team in scoring
on 64 occasions, and recorded 45 20-point games in his Anteater career.
His 651 points this season were the fifth-most in UCI history and the
most since Wayne Engelstad scored 708 in 1987-88.
In addition, Green, also known as "J-5," broke Tod Murphy's (1982-86)
school mark of 1,116 minutes played in one season (1985-86), as Green
played 1,159 this season. Green is UCI's career leader in field goals
made with 672, field goals attempted (1,426), free throws made (533),
free throws attempted (658) and steals (162). He had 412 assists in his
career to rank third at UCI.
