Green, Tanksley Leaving Niagara
Wednesday, 01 May 2013
ImageBuffalo News: When coach Joe Mihalich left Niagara for Hofstra last month Purple Eagle fans could take comfort in the wealth of talent he was leaving behind.

It’s time to get uncomfortable.

All-conference guard Juan’ya Green and rebounding leader Ameen Tanksley have been granted transfer requests and are leaving the university, athletic department spokesman Derick Thornton confirmed today. The two sophomores are Philadelphia natives and lifelong friends.

The departures are a major blow to a program that won the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular-season championship last year, earning a berth in the NIT. Green was the MAAC’s Freshman of the Year two years ago and last season emerged as a top contender for conference Player of the Year. He averaged 16.5 points and 5 assists while leading the Purple Eagles to a 19-14 record.
