Greenies At A Glance

If Randy Livingston’s name rings a bell, it’s because he was a McDonald’s All-American who played parts of 11 NBA seasons with nine different teams. His effect as a head coach has been almost immediate, as an ultra-young roster, led by 6-5 JR Chris Lockett (18.6 ppg, 8 rpg, 4.1 apg, 2.3 steals), stormed all the way to the Division III championship game. The Greenies fell short in a 52-48 loss to No. 2-seeded Dunham at Lake Charles’ Burton Coliseum and might struggle in a City of Palms field that features 13 teams in the BallisLife Fab 50, but the future is bright. Newman’s sophomores accounted for 46 points in a 54-45 semifinal win over Holy Savior Menard, including 14 points and four steals by 6-0 JR Canin Jefferson (14.3 ppg, 3.9 apg) … The lineup includes promising 6-8 SOPH Todd Jones (7.2 ppg, 5.5 rpg), 6-3 JR Will Randle (7.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg) and 6-3 JR Arch Manning, the nation’s No. 1 quarterback prospect in the Class of 2023. The Greenies also added a pair of potential impact transfers in 6-0 SR Gunner Walters (17.6 ppg, 2.6 steals at Grandview Prep FL) and 6-5 SR Austin Montgomery (Birmingham Hoover AL).
