N cody46 (talk) 23:55, 6 April 2009 (UTC) Peer Review: I think that your article on Danny Green is headed in the right direction, but needs more information. I liked your introduction; it's short and to the point. Your listing of high-school awards is easy to understand and comprehensive. The article, so far, is unbiased and readable. Your statistics are current, and your sources are authoritative and varied. The personal information section is relevant, but could be made more so by linking Green's dad's arrest to Green himself; how was he affected by the incident? How was his family affected? Did Green make any comments on his dad's arrest? You need more links to other Wikipedia articles throughout the story. For example, instead of linking to the North Carolina Tar Heels, link to the North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball. Link to articles for shooting guard, Newsday, etc. A picture at the top would enhance the article; put a face to all the information. If you happen to have a picture of Green that you took yourself, or that a friend took, or if you can get permission to use a Daily Tar Heel photo, that's what I would use. You need more information and statistics to fill out the article. Take the reader through his freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior seasons. How many points did he average per game? How many rebounds? Did he break any records that year? Then I'd have a section on his overall college career; his career statistics (personal records: points scored in a game, three-pointers made, etc.) and any records he's set (in the NCAA, ACC, and at UNC-CH.) Also, give a section on any awards that Green has won. (See Tyler Hansbrough's page for a good template for all of this.) The ESPN page you referenced on Green is a good statistical source. Here's another, which gives more details about games and players: [1] Check the NCAA records page [2] along with that of the ACC [3] to see if Green holds any college basketball records. Also, read news articles to find other information on Green. Check Sports Illustrated [4] and the Daily Tar Heel [5], for example. You might also want to check out books at the library: here's a Tar Heel Basketball Handbook in the North Carolina Collection in the library [6] -Noel Cody

Peer Review[edit]

This is a very interesting article so far! I really like the section about high school highlights. You provide plenty of information about his high school career that most people do not know about Danny Green. The first thing I noticed is that the college section definitely needs some expansion. I believe this should be the main part of your article because Danny Green is well known for being a member of the Carolina Basketball team in college, but in your article this is the least developed section. I found books in the North Carolina section that I believe might provide some useful information about his participation in UNC Basketball. They are Tar Heel tip-off 2008-2009: an annual guide to North Carolina basketball (call # Cp378 UZa65 2008) and Tar Heel tip-off 2007-2008: an annual guide to North Carolina basketball (call # Cp378 UZa65).

UNC’s official athletic website (www.tarheelblue.com) would also be a really good resource for you. Each player has a profile on this website (here is Danny’s: http://tarheelblue.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl/mtt/green_danny00.html). The profile provides extensive information about career notes for each season and his game highlights for each game he played in. I think providing stats for each season individually in addition to his career as a whole would be good a good addition and I believe you could find this information on tarheelblue.com

I also found this article (http://northcarolina.rivals.com/viewprospect.asp?pr_key=21525&Sport=2 ) on Carolina Blue about Danny Green’s recruitment information. I think it might be very helpful to include this information in your article. Readers may be interested in offers he received from other school and the other schools he considered attending.

Finally, I like your section about personal information, but I think it could use some expansion as well. I think if you could find a biography of Danny Green or additional news articles it would be interesting to provide more information about his past and his family. Maybe including where he was born and where he grew up would be helpful information. Also, apparently one of his brothers plays basketball as well (http://www.usfdons.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/081408aaa.html) so this could be included in family information.

I would also suggest adding a references section for all of your links and then providing in-line citations/footnotes for your article. Overall I think this is a very good start for your article. You’re definitely on the right track and I think this will be an excellent article when you’re done!
