Coach Bender on Green
"Our opponents are probably wondering how long Thalo really has been here. I would like to keep Thalo for another four years, but unfortunately this is it. Thalo has seen the highs individually with his success when we made the run in the NCAA Tournament. He has had to deal with the adversity of injuries and the losing season last year. That is something that hurts Thalo and he is the type of player that is willing to express himself to his teammates in a forum that's important. He's a guy who will step up and say that he's not going to accept losing this year. We'd like for him to become a threat from the perimeter. When we go with the lineup where he is playing the small forward that he has in the past, if he can pull people away from the basket it will make him a more difficult matchup. He is very deceiving in that he will score inside over people that are bigger than him. He also does a great job of getting people the ball when they are open."
