DETROIT, Mich. – Despite basketball season being a couple months away, one incoming freshman on the North Georgia men’s basketball team is already getting great experience and staying sharp. Corey Green, who graduated from Bishop Foley Catholic High School this past year was one of the top players in the state of Michigan chosen to participate in the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan All-Star game on Saturday, August 11.

In his final appearance for his prep career, he recorded a double-double as he put up 25 points and secured 13 rebounds to go along with three blocks and a pair of steals to lead his team to a 113-85 victory. Inside the Palace of Auburn Hills, the arena known as the home of the Detroit Pistons, Green and his team took on many other skilled players from across the state.

As a senior last year at Foley, Green led his team to a 20-4 record that included winning the Catholic League and district championships. They ultimately fell in the region championship game.

Green, who averaged 24.5 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks per game, was named to the all-state team as well as the all-county “Dream Team.” In just two and a half seasons at Foley, he set the school record for rebounds in a career, and his senior year also featured him setting the single-season record for rebounds in a season.

A three-time all-league selection, Green will join a North Georgia squad that returns 11 players from last year’s roster.
