Green scored 13.1 points per game and dished out 3.9 assists per game while posting the fourth highest assist to turnover ratio in the conference.

After making the all-conference team last year, senior guard Wes Eikmeier was named honorable mention all-conference this season after leading the MW shooting 94.5 percent from the free throw line and making 1.69 3-pointers for game.
