Chicago Simeon’s Tim Green, a starter on the Wolverine’s Elite Eight squad, and one of the better Class of 2005 prospects in the state of Illinois, is working hard to improve his game. Next year, Green, and Class of 2007 studs Derrick Rose and Tim Flowers will try and lead Simeon to another deep tournament run.
Green, a 6-2 point guard, teamed with Calvin Brock (Illinois) and Anthony Newell (Ball State) to help lead Simeon to the Elite Eight round of this year’s Class AA state tournament. Green is strong, athletic and has a solid handle on the basketball. Green is equally comfortable slashing to hole, or stepping back and knocking down jumpers from the perimeter.
Green told ChicagoHoops.com that he feels the strongest part of his game is his ability to break down defenders, and slash to the bucket. Green is putting an emphasis on improving his perimeter game by working on his jumper every day. In addition, Green is also lifting weights to continue to add bulk to his frame.
Green feels the Wolverines have a great coach in newly appointed head coach Robert Smith. Green says his main goal for the upcoming season is to lead his team back downstate, so they can finish what they worked so hard to try and attain a year ago.
