Quade Green’s stock continues to rise. He proved it in the first game of the day.
Trailing by one with 1:30 to go, Green scored eight of his team’s final ten points to close out the game for a five-point win. In his streak of six straight, he showed a pretty step-back shot and that he can take on contact to finish at the rim. He finished with 26 points on 10-15 shooting, adding 8 assists and 3 rebounds.
The up and coming point guard for the PSA Cardinals visited UK last week where he received a scholarship offer. He downplayed the facilities for all of the schools saying, “everybody sleeps well,” but one thing about Kentucky’s stood out.
“I seen a lot of pros on their walls, a lot of pros on their walls. That opened my eyes a little bit,” Green said. He also noticed the fans right away, “People asked for autographs already. It’s crazy.”
Moving forward, Green hasn’t put a deadline on his decision, but he had an intriguing message relayed to him by those that are recruiting him at Duke and Kentucky. With a couple of point guards competing for limited spots, “It really comes down to who commits first.”
