WEST WARWICK â€” Wizardsâ€™ 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.
â€śI 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),â€ť said Morrison. â€śMax (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.â€ť
â€śIâ€™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,â€ť said Grenier. â€śItâ€™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, Iâ€™m really proud of them.â€ť
Although Morrison and backcourt mate Max Matroni (21 points, 6 assists) had outstanding games as the floor generals, it was the play of West Warwickâ€™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.
