Dribble Drive and Dunk!
Growing up with four older brothers, Islander basketball player Deziree Green had no choice but to play sports, including basketball. The Dean's List junior credits her sister, Shana, for her academic strength. The Houston Rockets fan shoots solid three-point baskets and is known for her defense and rebounding on the court. The kinesiology major, who plans to become a high school coach, is fond of her hands-on classes. She recently taught Early Childhood Development Center students to do handstands and taught golf to Cullen Place Middle School students. Deziree has always been attracted to basketball game excitement. In her high school career, she was a four-time, all-district selection from Houston's Westside High School and was selected honorable mention All-Texas and to the Greater Houston All-Star game as a high school senior. At the Island University, Deziree is among the top players. As a sophomore, Deziree started in all 32 games and scored a career high 23 points in the Conference Tournament in the second half to upset Texas State. She also was named to ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America District VI Second team. Deziree is the daughter of Milton and Edna Green.
