More Darius Morris video from Tom, this one is from a blow win over Crossroads. Here are Tom’s comments on the game:
This was Windward’s first conference game of the season and Crossroads didn’t offer much resistance as Windward won 61-35.Â Crossroads has a 6’10 center who provided a big body but was not that skilled.Â The game was close in the first quarter as Darius got off to a slow start but he got hot in the 2nd quarter and they pulled away.Â By the 4th quarter it was a 30 point game and Darius sat out most of it.Â After missing his first 5 shots, he hit 10-12 (the two misses came on the same play) from the field and 1-2 from the line to finish with 21 points.Â He probably could have put 40 on the board but he only had 4 field goal attempts in the second half (3 on fast breaks) and was content to set up his teammates.Â I continue to be impressed by not only his ability on the court but also the way that he carries himself.Â After having guys like Avery Queen, Mo Searight, Dom Ingerson, etc. in the program – it’s great that we were able to get somebody that is not only a top-100 talent but also a great kid who will represent the program well on and off the floor.
Windward has a HUGE game against conference rival and LA Times’ 11th ranked team, Campbell Hall, at Windward this Saturday at 7pm.Â If any Michigan fans in the area are interested in seeing Darius play, that would be a great game to attend.
