I have stood up for Monte since the beginning, never doubted him once. I think he is going to be a bigger recruit for us than anyone named Vaughn ever would have been. Monte has the mentality to be a great point guard. He also very rarely gets himself into a position where he will get injured. Let us hope this holds up, because we need him healthy.

Good article, love what Morris has done. He was in over his head defensively against Staten the other night (just like every other PG in the big 12 this year) but other than that he has held his own as a true frosh in the toughest conference in basketball. His development is also a great credit Fred, the way he handled his PT allowed him build his confidence early in the season and is a big part of the game slowing down for MM, every game he shows improvement in some facet.
Staten actually had an off night. Dil(d)o killed us by hitting 5 of 7 threes.

I love Monte. The story about him and Izzo made me smile because you can totally tell that it is true and the kid hasn't changed in all of those years. Monte has a quiet confidence that isn't exactly cocky but is the exact type of mindset you want your point guard to have. The whole time before he was starting you could tell he knew with absolute certainty that he should be starting, but he wasn't disrespectful about it and he didn't pout. He just went out and made himself a starter.
He will be fun to watch for the next 3-plus years.
A lot of coaches say that the most progress is made by players from their freshman to sophomore year. If that is true, I can't wait to see what Matt and Monte, and even SDW look like next year. Naz has to get his shooting back too. They all need to be in the gym every day this off-season putting up a few hundred shots each day.
