Neusha shows tremendous potential to do more, and we believe she will turn into something great in the near future. We love her attitude and approach about becoming a force and she has a will to be successful in the classroom as well."
Green graduated from Walton High School and played under head girl’s coach Matt Kelterborn. She had seven career double-doubles in points and rebounds. In her senior year, she averaged seven points, eight rebounds and one block.
“Dawson’s energy and community is so strong and I wanted to experience that far from home," Green said. "I really clicked with the program and support system, and found my place to grow as a player and student these next two years.”
Green was voted Honorable Mention for Region 4 in the Class 7A school. Her junior season, she was voted Second Team All-Region, averaging 7 points, 10 rebounds and 1 block. She had a career high of 15 points this past season and 19 rebounds in a game her junior season.
