EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Flint Beecher point guard Monte Morris has been selected as The Associated Press Class C Player of the Year.
The 6-foot-1 junior who's won the award two consecutive years averaged 19.5 points and 4.3 assists per game this season. He also led the regional champion Buccaneers to their first undefeated regular season in 27 years, and to two state semifinals.
Morris' scoring ability allows him to drive to the basket, shoot from the outside and battle on the boards But it's his all-around game that makes him such a threat on the floor.
The 3-year starter and team captain says personal success and public acclaim are not what drive him. Now, he wants to win a state championship.
