I remember when the Daily News wrote that Lee Green had just committed to St. John’s! Fans were so pleased!!
And grateful for Lee’s effort.
RIP Lee and
Blessings to your family in this time of sadness and loss.

Heard a little while ago. Shocked and saddened. Much to young. Remember him well. Joins Sergio Luyk who was also taken much to young. Condolences to all of Lee’s loved ones. RIP.

And, both of those guys played early in their careers with Malik Sealy, who is also gone.

Suddenly, there was an opportunity tonight for Green, a junior guard who began the night having played 25 more minutes than he did all last season. "I never really knew until we got to the locker room," Green said, "and they said Derek would be out and I'd be with the first unit."

On the outside, Green just went about his normal pre-game routine. On the inside. . . .

"I was pumped," he said, smiling. "I found a couple of extra inches on my vertical."

Green reached career highs in points (10), minutes (31), rebounds (3) and assists (3). After a rocky first two minutes, in which the Redmen committed five turnovers on their first five possessions, Green worked smoothly with senior guard David Cain, who had 13 points, 4 assists, 1 turnover, 6 rebounds, a blocked shot and a steal.
