QUOTING DE'ANTE GREEN

“De’Ante Green’s ability to shoot the ball and his comfort level on the ball provide matchup problems.  His size and his skill set give him the ability to pull bigs away from the rim.  Green has the ability to pull bigs away from the rim.  If you have a guy who is 6-foot-9 playing on the perimeter that pulls the rim protection out or forces you to guard him with a smaller type of player,” said Jamie Shaw of the Absolute Basketball Experience.

WHY I WEAR MY NUMBER

I wear No. 5 at Florida State because I think it looks like a really cool number.  It’s the first time in my career I’ve worn the No. 5. 

De’Ante Green is the 18th player in school history to wear the number 5.  Bernard James, who also wore the No. 5, led the Seminoles to the ACC Championship in 2012 and to the NCAA Tournament in 2011 and 2012.  He was an All-Conference Honorable Mention selection, was named to the All-ACC Defensive Team and to the All-ACC Tournament team in 2012.
