ANTHONY GREEN RETURNS FOR THE 2022 NBL1 SEASON

In more exciting news for the Norwood Basketball Club (the Flames), are thrilled to announce the signing of Anthony Green for the 2022 NBL1 season!

A 6’10 Centre from Quincy, Massachusetts, Anthony played 4 years of Division 1 NCAA with the  North Eastern Huskies under the coaching of Bill Coen.

In his first year in Australia, he averaged 11.4ppg, 8.2rpg and 1.5 blocks per game.

About the upcoming season, Anthony says: “I’m excited to back for another year, also I’m excited for what Norwood as a team and club have to offer after last season making it to the grand final!”

The first half of the season was bumpy for Anthony, as hr got used to the different style of play here and his teammates, But by the 2nd half of the season, big AG found his feet and you could find him regularly in the national top 10 plays of the week

Check out Green’s highlights below:

With Anthony locked in as a big who dominates the paint, Coach Tim Odell is looking at making him more of a focal point of the offence and giving him opportunities to show more of what he can do:

NBL1 General Manager Will Smith also sees  what role Anthony Green can play:

“Anthony gave us exactly what we needed as key-way presence. He protects the hoop as good as anyone in NBL1 and puts a lot of pressure on the opposing team’s rim, as he attacks it with as much ferocity as we have seen in NBL1 Central in a long time. With or roster in 2022, we see Anthony being an even bigger focal point and a dominant force on both ends.”

Now more accustomed to the Aussie culture, AG is really enjoying himself in the community and exploring the surrounds of Adelaide.

Anthony will also continue his coaching in the community, helping out with our Junior Programs.

The season tips off on April 9th, against the Panthers, with the group in full pre-season mode.
