For the majority of Green's freshman season at Michigan State, the burly 6-foot-7 forward did not see much playing time. He averaged just 3.3 points and 3.3 rebounds, but there were flickers of potential in the Spartans' run to the championship game in the NCAA Tournament. Green had 16 points in the first-round win and grabbed 10 boards in the Elite Eight against Louisville. He continued to come off the bench as a sophomore but put up 9.9 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists to win Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year. Michigan State returned to the Final Four and Green averaged 8.8 points and 6.4 rebounds in the run. The Michigan native started 27 games as a junior and submitted a pair of triple-doubles, including 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the first-round NCAA Tournament loss to UCLA. As a senior, Green provided 16.2 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists to win Big Ten Player of the Year. He had another triple-double in the Big Dance and helped the Spartans advance to the Sweet 16. Over his four seasons in East Lansing, Green grabbed 1,094 rebounds, the most in Spartan history. He was drafted 35th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors.
