KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Lady Vols have added forward-center Keyen Green as a graduate transfer from Liberty.

Coach Kellie Harper announced Wednesday that Green has signed a scholarship for the upcoming season.

The 6-foot-1 Green spent the past four seasons at Liberty and graduated in May 2019. She sat out the 2018-19 season with an ankle injury and has a season of eligibility left.

“Keyen brings maturity and game experience to our team,” Harper said. “She is productive in the paint and aggressively rebounds the ball. She provides us another person of high character, and we are excited to welcome her to our program.”

From Philadelphia, Green started 91 of 93 games at Liberty and averaged 13.1 points and 7.2 rebounds. She left Liberty tied for eighth with 17 career double-doubles. Green was an All-ASUN pick this season and led Liberty with 13.9 points a game and 7.5 rebounds. She also led the ASUN shooting 59%.

She was Big South Player of the Year in 2017-18 when she led that league and ranked 11th nationally shooting 61%. Green also was Big South Freshman of the Year.
