UW Basketball: Jeremy Green Is Definitely The Player To Watch For Stanford

The star player for Stanford right now is pretty obviously Jeremy Green, particularly after Thursday night's performance against Washington State as described by Scott Allen of SBN's Rule of Tree.

Green was the offensive star for Stanford. He finished with 24 points on 7-for-9 shooting, making all five of his 3-pointers and all five of his free throws. In the Cardinal's last two games, Green has 47 points on 13-for-17 shooting. Including the 3-pointer he made in the final minute of Stanford's loss to Arizona, the junior has connected on his last 11 shots from beyond the arc.

And as Allen alluded to, that wasn't just a fluke performance - Green has been playing well for the last few games after a mid-season slump as Seattle Times reporter Percy Allen wrote.

After a midseason scoring slump, junior guard Jeremy Green (above, right) has tallied 21, 23 and 24 points in the past three games respectively. In the previous eight games, Green shot just 28.4 percent overall and 27.1 percent from beyond the arc. It was the longest cold-shooting stretch of his career. Green has made 10 straight three-pointers in the past two games. He was 5-for-5 against Arizona State and 5-for-5 against Washington State. Stanford is 6-14 when Green attempts 15 or more shots and 21-13 when he totals 14 or less tries.

Another player to watch is Dwight Powell, a 6-foot-9 forward who also had a big game against Washington State and is also among the team's most efficient scorers. Powell is also among their top defenders with a solid steal percentage and the team's best shot blocker in the rotation by percentage.
