NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA- Senior center Lance Greene (Dorchester, MA/Charlestown HS/UMass Lowell) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's basketball team has been honored by the Little East Conference.
Greene has been named LEC Co-Men's Basketball Player of the Week.
In three games last week, Greene averaged 18.3 points and 15.3 rebounds per game, posting a double double in each game. He scored 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds against Salem State, then scored 37 points and grabbed 31 rebounds in two games at the Hampton Inn Classic to earn a spot on the All-Tournament Team. He made 16 of 33 shots from the field for 48.5 per cent while contributing seven blocked shots.
"Lance did an outstanding job for us in our three games last week," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Brian Baptiste. "He played well on both ends of the floor, and had five assists in the last game against Bowdoin, as well as a few blocked shots. He's really doing an outstanding job."
The Corsairs are 1-2 and will return to action when they host Brandeis Tuesday evening.
