More than just a shooter...the first reference thereof. Wussed out and decided not to make the trek from Birmingham...so watching on the couch with halftime shoveling on the agenda.

Morgan is looking like he did as an underclassman.  He doesn't have to worry about being pulled if he screws up, with our thinner depth, and he's much more decisive.  Remember, he averaged 9 points per game in 2010-11.
