Early life and high school career

Queen began playing basketball at the age of four at a hoop in his garage. He played shortstop and pitcher on the baseball field growing up, which he said was his best sport. [1] Queen played football for the FAB Phenoms Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) program. [2] He played basketball for North County High School in his hometown of Glen Burnie, Maryland. He began playing for the varsity team as a sophomore for the final playoff game of the season. Queen moved to a high school in Florida for his junior season but was not allowed to play basketball because he had transferred too late. [3] Queen returned to North County as a senior and played nine games. He had no college basketball offers by the end of his high school career. [1]

College career

Queen originally planned to attend Prince George's Community College due to a mutual relationship between the school's basketball coach and his AAU coach, but he redshirted his first season because of paperwork issues. [4] He began playing college basketball at College of Marin in Marin County, California. While attending the school, Queen lived in crowded conditions at a retirement home before he and his roommates were kicked out. For one week, he lived with three teammates in a car in East Oakland, before moving into the home of his teammate's relative. [1] Queen scored a freshman season-high 29 points, to go with 11 rebounds and eight steals, in a December 10, 2016 win over Feather River College. [5] In 14 games with Marin, he averaged a team-high 21.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. [6] [7]

As a sophomore, Queen moved to New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico upon his family's advice. In his season debut, he scored 40 points in a November 1, 2017 victory over Northern New Mexico JV. On November 4, Queen recorded a season-high 41 points in a loss to New Mexico Junior College. [8] By the end of the season, he was averaging 26 points, which ranked fourth in the National Junior College Athletic Association, to go with 7.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. [7] [8] Queen was selected to the All-Western Junior College Athletic Conference team. [9] He committed to play NCAA Division I basketball for Western Kentucky and enrolled at the school but departed in September 2018. [10] He later committed to New Mexico State. [1]

As a junior, Queen averaged 7.8 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game as one of the top reserves for the Aggies. He scored a season-high 27 points in the WAC Tournament title game against Grand Canyon. [11] He was named the 2019 WAC Tournament MVP. [12] In the first round of the 2019 NCAA tournament, he scored 14 points but missed a potential game-winning three-pointer in a 78–77 loss to fifth-seeded Auburn, who would advance to the Final Four. [13] As a senior, Queen averaged 13.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game and was one of the top defenders in the conference. [1] He missed three weeks with a knee injury. [14] Queen was named to the Second Team All-WAC. [15] He scored a season-high 23 points and nine rebounds on November 22, 2019, in a 78-77 loss to New Mexico. [16]
