The New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) is one of the most competitive conferences in the country for Division III basketball. It is also one of the best academic conferences in the country. Amherst College won the the 2011-2012 NESCAC championship in men's basketball, going 26-3 on the season before falling in the D-III NCAA Tournament. Connor Green is one of the top players to come out of New Hampshire in the last few years, and over the weekend he made his commitment to Amherst official.
Green is a 6'5" wing player with a rugged frame who attacks the rim off the dribble, can finish inside and also hit the pull-up jumper in the mid-range area or from the outside. He plays the game above the rim, can score the basketball in a variety of ways and has also improved his rebounding ability. Green led Bishop Guertin to the Division I state title in 2011 and is currently doing a post-grad year at Phillips Exeter Academy. His younger sister Meghan Green is a junior and led the BG girls team to the D-I title just a few weeks ago.
