In 2003 Green was recruited to Georgetown University by coach Craig Esherick .Esherick was fired before Green arrived on campus and John Thompson III was hired as the new coach.

He was named to the All-Big East Second Team in 2006 along with teammate Roy Hibbert.
In 2007, Green was named the Big East Player of the Year. He and Hibbert were unanimous selections to the All-Big East First Team. After his 30-point performance in the 2007 Big East Tournament semifinal against Notre Dame and his 21-point performance in the championship against Pittsburgh, Green was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament, as the Hoyas won their first Big East title since 1989.

Green beat Vanderbilt with a game-winning shot in the game’s closing seconds as well as fearlessly leading the Hoyas to victory against No. 1 seed UNC in a stunning second-half comeback victory and bringing the Hoyas back to their first Final Four since Patrick Ewing led them to the 1985 National Championship game.
