Indiana basketball career stats: 14.5 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 53.8 FG%
Steve Green is most famously known as Bob Knight’s first recruit as the head coach of the Indiana basketball program in 1971-72, and he did not disappoint. Though he wasn’t allowed to play as a freshman, in Green’s junior and senior seasons, he averaged more than 16.0 points per game and shot 56.0 percent from the field in his final two seasons.
Green ended up only playing three seasons with Bob Knight and the Hoosiers, so he only ranks in the top 10 all-time in the following statistical category:
Field goal percentage – 53.8 % (9th)
A senior at the time, Green is most known for his scoring performance in the 1975 NCAA Tournament, where he scored 34 points against Oregon State in the Sweet 16, then followed that up with 21 points against Kentucky in an Elite Eight loss. If Green played all four seasons at IU, where do you think he would’ve ranked in many statistical categories? My opinion, top 10 for sure in a lot of those categories.
