    Monte Morris Feature in ISD

    The Iowa State Daily actually had a really good story on Monte Morris today. I'd encourage you to check it out:

    Monte's Moment - Iowa State Daily: Men's Basketball

    I loved the opening part, with 10-year old Monte telling Tom Izzo that he'd recruit him someday.

    Re: Monte Morris Feature in ISD

    Anyone ambitious enough to find a video of the play the article talks about? "In midair Morris caught the ball. Then, without touching the court, he contorted his body and delivered a dime across the court to where only his streaking teammate could catch it". Would love to see it.

    Re: Monte Morris Feature in ISD

    I've been saying it most of the season but our offense has only really looked good in Big 12 when Monte is in there running the show. The guy just knows basketball and some of his assist are pretty crazy, plays I don't even see that are open while I'm watching but he does and it leads to easy baskets. More so, Monte has been a fantastic defender which is hard for a freshman to do! Proud to have him as a cyclone. Sadly and selfishly, I kinda doubt he is a 4 year player here. He's breaking records as a freshman. If he puts more weight on and continues to work on his jumper he'll be heading to the NBA.

    I'd be a bit surprised if he leaves early. He's not a prep school kid and he's young for his class. He'll only be 21 on draft day if he stays all 4 years. He and Kane both have June birthdays... 6 years apart!

    That youth only makes him more valuable to NBA teams, but I think he stays at least 3 years and probably 4.

    Re: Monte Morris Feature in ISD

    Great read! Even when we were recruiting Man Man I knew there was something special about him. I felt like he was underrated and a complete steal and he's really proving that. It's great to see Fred compiling leaders and winners on this team.

    I have that same feeling about Custer as I had Monte. Those two are going to be special in the back court. And when I say special I mean potentially the best 1-2 punch at the PG spot in the nation.. And sooner rather than later. They know how to lead a team to W's and they believe in themselves.

    I also think people are going to be surprised at how often these two are on the court together at the same time next year.

    A challenge that is up my alley! I took about 45 minutes to poke around and finally found it buried in a video recap of the 2013 rematch of Flint Beecher and Detroit Consortium. The play quoted above was in the 2012 game and can be seen in the linked video at the 19 second mark. Video Landing Page - ABC 12

    Also, here's a picture of the game winning shot. The crowd reactions are always funny. http://media.mlive.com/flint-journal...17ad0469b0.JPG

    I also attached a screenshot of the pivotal pass taken from the video above.

    Great article, thanks for sharing.

    Re: Monte Morris Feature in ISD

    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.
