North Quincy's Green commits to Northeastern


Former North Quincy High star Anthony Green announced last night on his Twitter account that he has committed to Northeastern University for the 2015-16 season.

The 6-foot-9 Green, who is currently doing a post-graduate season at Tilton (N.H.), has been one of New England's quickest-rising prospects over the last 12 months since bursting on the scene at North Quincy High. Last winter, Green was named to the First Team of ESPN Boston's annual MIAA All-State Team after leading the North Quincy Red Raiders to a second straight appearance in the Division 1 South Final. On the season he averaged 12 points, nine rebounds and five blocks this season -- including a triple-double in his final high school game, the D1 South Final loss to Catholic Memorial. He set North Quincy's career blocks record (177).

Over the last two seasons, with Green starting at center, the Red Raiders went 41-8, including a 23-2 mark and outright Patriot League title in 2013-14. He also enjoyed success this summer with the Boston Amateur Basketball Club (BABC), which is run by North Quincy alum Leo Papile.

New Hampshire and Bryant were the other Division 1 schools that had reportedly offered Green.
