The North East Bushrangers Basketball Club are excited to announce the signing of Jordan Green as our Div 2 Men’s import for the 2019 season.
Jordan is an athletic and agile player with limitless versatility which will strengthen our inside/outside options. At 26 years of age and being a lofty 202cm, he will be a formidable force to guard inside the paint and an asset on the boards. We will be looking for Jordan to utilise his wealth of NCAA experience, and extensive basketball coaching credentials to provide strong leadership to our young playing group.
Coach, Emma Henry said, “We are excited to have Jordan join the Bushies squad and provide more depth to the group. He will be a much-needed strong presence inside the key both offensively and defensively. He brings with him a lot of experience and can stretch the floor and play from the perimeter. We look forward to him working with some of our young and developing players to help them continue to take their game to the next level.“
Jordan will be an asset off the court too! He began his coaching career at camps for Chelsea Piers in New York City, where he quickly gained the reputation of making the camp seriously skill-driven, yet ensuring the camp was fun and exciting for the kids. Jordan’s camp mantra of ‘developing the kids and letting their improvement be fun’ was of particular interest to NEB as junior player development in North East Victoria is a priority for the Club.
Jordan is a self-professed ‘gym junkie’ and student of the game. He is a leader who endeavours to improve his team-mates skill base while priding himself as being a well-rounded player on court.
Jordan has been associated with basketball since birth – his father, Sean Green, is a former NBA Player and FIBA Professional. Jordan studied Film and Digital Media majoring in Communication at university in the States.
NEB Head Coach, Emma Henry, added “We are looking forward to showcasing Jordan to our fans at our first home game in Wangaratta.”
Our Men’s team take to the court in Round 1 at home in Wangaratta on Sunday March 17th , 1pm tip-off. Don’t miss the action!
