WEST WARWICK — Wizards’ guard John Morrison is quietly developing a reputation as one of the better shooters in the state.
He already has two games this season in which he made six three-pointers.
Last night, however, Morrison showed he has more to his game than just shooting by totaling 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists in an impressive all around performance that lead the Wizards to a 87-55 win over the Central Falls Warriors.
“I was able to go inside and score and that kept the defense off me a little and opened things up for my jumper. I was really just trying to stay aggressive (tonight),” said Morrison. “Max (Matroni) is a great point guard, Kyle (Brown) is, all of our point guards are good and they do a great job of finding our perimeter players and it was a good team win.”
“I’m really proud of John and all of our guards when they play unselfishly and distribute the basketball to our big guys because they work really hard,” said Grenier. “It’s nice to see our big guys get rewarded and for John to almost have a triple-double speaks volumes for how unselfish we have become as a team, I’m really proud of them.”
Although Morrison and backcourt mate Max Matroni (21 points, 6 assists) had outstanding games as the floor generals, it was the play of West Warwick’s big guys that created separation in this contest.
The Wizards out muscled the smaller Warriors inside and dominated the action off the glass with a 60-35 rebounding advantage, including 22 offensive rebounds.
