Following a spectacular and historic debut month, the newest Gladiator, Quade Green has won the British Basketball League’s Molten Player of the Month award for March.

Since moving to Scotland, Green has been a standout in Gareth Murray’s Gladiators squad – leading the team in scoring with a hugely impressive 25.6 PPG. Alongside his bucket-getting abilities, the American guard has showcased his abilities elsewhere, adding 4.8 assists and 1.4 steals per game, all whilst shooting an efficient 43% shooting from beyond the arc.

Brought in from South America, where he played his basketball to begin the season, the Kentucky University alumni has turned heads in the league, causing trouble for defenders, and being branded as one of the best signings in the league this season.

Gaining the nickname ‘Money Green’ from the Gladiators faithful, Green contributes his early success in Caledonia blue to the support of his teammates, coaching staff, and the fans. He told The Scotsman: “My teammates have brought me here with open arms, treat me like a brother and like I’ve been here the whole season. They’ve treated me like I’m a brother since I first got here. The fans bring all the energy for us, the fans do their job and we’re just doing ours too. We feed off the fans.”

Alongside fellow new face, Teddy Allen of the Leicester Riders, the pair have made British Basketball League history. Since 2008, when records began, only two other players have scored more points than the duo in their first eight Championship games.
