Monroe head coach Tim Parrinello applauded Green and her efforts throughout the year. “Sierra Green is a player that came into the program, worked her tail off and got better every day. Her success is a product of knowing that we believed in her and that she had our trust. Her confidence was contagious and was a huge factor in our team winning the national championship. She is one of the all-time great players here at Monroe.”

Green wrapped up her stellar career as a Tribune with a 62-6 record on the hardwood. Green’s 158 three-point shots this year led the nation and also set a single-season record for Monroe. Green’s tenure also saw school records set in single-game and career three-point shots made and became a member of the program’s 1,000-point club.

Parrinello continued his praise of Green. “Her 1,109 points and 246 threes in her career are a testament to her hard work. Beyond the numbers she is a great student, teammate, friend, and leader. She is exactly what we at Monroe Community College ask our young ladies to be. We are extremely proud of her. I personally am excited to see what the future holds for her."
