It's Official: Green is Gone

After much waffling on Mr. Green's part, he has made a final decision and is staying in the NBA draft. We would have loved him to return to GU but it is hard to argue with his decision, especially if he has been told that he will be at the high end of his projected draft status. (If the IPB is lucky, Jeff will be in Celtic green next year.) Jeff will go down as one of the all-time great Hoyas. He brought the program back to respectability in his first year; in his second he took the program back to where it belonged--in the March mix with a run to the Sweet 16; and as a junior, he brought the program back to the Final Four for the first time since 1985. My advice to Jeff at this stage is as follows: (1) don't let the NBA change you; continue to represent GU well, as you have for the past 3 years; (2) make sure you complete your college degree; (3) remember to give back to the alma mater; Coach and the players who follow you will need your support. Good Luck & God Speed!
