Alvernia's Malik Green talks with SV Sports
Malik Green knows all about the rivalry between Alvernia and Albright. The 6'4 senior has been part of it since 2018. Green stepped up in the second half and helped the Golden Wolves beat the Lions 92-78 on Saturday at the Bollman Center. Alvernia was on top 33-28 at halftime. Albright went on a 15-7 run to open the second half and grab a 43-40 advantage. It was even at 56 with ten minutes to go. The Golden Wolves are an experienced club and it showed down the stretch. They built a 17-point lead with two minutes remaining. Green and Robert Mullan scored 25 points apiece. Mullan, a 6'1 junior guard, was 4-6 from beyond the arc and 9-10 from the foul line. "Mullan made a big transition. He worked a lot in the offseason to get better. He wanted to contribute more," said Green. Junior forward Jakob Kelly from Bishop McDevitt added 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 assists. Alvernia shot 54.5% in the second half. Keba Mitchell chipped in with 10 points, 9 boards, and 4 blocks. The former Berks Catholic standout had a pair of late dunks. Green gave credit to their student section. "They told us they were bringing it, and they fueled us through this whole game," he replied. The (16-6, 10-3) Golden Wolves swept the (7-14, 4-9) Lions this season. Alvernia is in first place in the MAC Commonwealth. "I feel like we're peaking at a great time. If we pull out a full 40 minutes, I really don't think nobody can beat us," stated Green. He has more than 1,700 career points. The Simon Gratz product is a big Eagles fan. Green gave a Super Bowl prediction to Paul Roberts of SV Sports. They also had fun talking about Green's version of the "Griddy" dance.
Great interview with our captain Malik Green . Paul covered all subjects from the game, additions to the team, the rivalry,griddy dance, coaching staff, and the super bowl. That is why Paul is number one reporter in berks. Lucky to have him
