Green Named Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach at Wayne State

Wayne State University head women’s basketball coach Carrie Lohr announced the appointment of Christina Green as an assistant women’s basketball coach.

Green, who has served as the squad’s graduate assistant coach the last two years, earned her bachelor’s degree in Management from WSU in May of 2018 after a four-year career (2013-17) with the Warriors.  She played in 89 career games, making 35 starts.  Green tallied a career-high 25 points against Northern Michigan (Jan. 14, 2017) and pulled down a career-best 11 rebounds vs. Ursuline (Nov. 11-2016).  She is sixth in school history in career field goal percentage (.510 / min. 150 made) and is currently tied-for-22nd in blocked shots with 33.  Green received her master’s degree in sports administration earlier this month.

” I am very excited to have Christina Green join the women’s basketball coaching staff as an assistant coach,” stated Lohr.  “She was a successful four-year collegiate student-athlete at WSU, including a member of two teams that made NCAA tournament appearances (Sweet Sixteen in 2014, and Second Round in 2015).  She understands the Warrior Athletics culture, embracing our three pillars of academics, athletics, and community outreach.  Christina will be a positive leader and resource for our women’s basketball program.”

In her first two years as a student-athlete on the WSU women’s basketball team, the Warriors had back-to-back 23-win campaigns and totaled four post-season victories.

During her two seasons as a graduate assistant coach, Green helped WSU record a 28-22 mark and a post-season victory each year.
