    Re: Monte Morris is Michigan's Mr. Basketball

    This part right here blows my mind.

    He remembers watching Flint Northwestern’s Kelvin Torbert win the 2001 award.

    “I actually watched him in high school," Morris said. “He was an amazing player. I went to a couple of his games, and he was a high flier and everything."

    Morris was in kindergarten at the time.

    Great news for ISU! Michigan is usually a pretty good BB state, right? So this actually means something. It's not like he's Montana's Mr BB...

    He beat out a Micky D's going to Kentucky and another stud going to Michigan. It means something.

    Outstanding. I've thought for a while that Matt Thomas' signing overshadowed Monte's too much. This kid is the real deal.

    I believe this is a bit of an upset. There are a couple of other guys who I thought would get the award over Morris. The fact that he got it is awesome. Nice.
