NORTH CHARLESTON, SC., Dec. 29, 2001 -- The North Charleston Lowgators signed former Indiana State University guard Nate Green, Head Coach Alex English announced today.
"We (Coaching Staff) felt like we needed to make a move to get better all around," Head Coach Alex English said. "Nate Green is a young player who shows a lot of leadership. He is a solid point guard who can push the ball up the floor and a great defender. We are delighted to have him."
Green will accompany the team to Mobile and will be in uniform on News Year Eve when the Lowgators visit the Revelers.
A 6'5, 195-pound shooting guard, Green played four years at Indiana State University, averaging 10.4 ppg, 4.4 apg and 2.1 spg in 114 career games. Green averaged 13.8 points, 4.4 assists and 2.9 steals per game in 32 games as a senior. He was Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year during his senior season. He played professional in Australia with the Canberra Cannons averaging 14.0 points and 5.5 assists per game. Green was released from the Detroit Pistons Veterans Camp this year.
"This is a good opportunity to get some great exposure to the NBA (scouts)," said Nate Green. "Not everyday do you have a Hall of Famer in Coach English to play for and I am excited to be here."
To make room for Green the Lowgators released 6-6 shooting guard Chris Robinson. Robinson averaged 9.2 points per game and 2.8 rpg in 20 games for the Lowgators.
