Cienega High School senior forward Lauren Green was offered a scholarship today by Long Beach State and New Mexico State after she and the Tucson Rattlers concluded their second AAU tournament in the last week.
Green is the second Tucson Rattlers player in the last week to be offered a scholarship. Natalie Bartle, a former Ironwood Ridge High School guard who will play for Negaunee (Mich.) High School as a senior, was offered a scholarship by Northern Michigan earlier this week.
Their teammate Kiya Dorroh, an incoming freshman guard at Tanque Verde High School, has been offered a scholarship by Arizona, ASU and Texas Rio Grande Valley.
Green and the Rattlers went 3-2 in Nike Tournament of Champions this week in Chicago after achieving a 4-1 record last week in the Las Vegas Invitational.
The Rattlers closed out their tournament in Chicago with a 66-42 win over the Wisconsin Playmakers yesterday. Green, 6’1″, had 13 points, seven rebounds and four steals in the game.
Bartle had 16 points and Dorroh finished with 11 points and three steals.
The Rattlers next play Nike Tournament of Champions in Atlanta from July 27-29.
