Linked Up: Meet Mr. Basketball
March 19, 2013
To casual high school basketball fans who hadn't heard about him coming up, Monte Morris introduced himself during Flint Beecher's run to last season's MHSAA Class C championship.
On Monday, the Iowa State recruit won a close competition among the top three finalists for this season's Mr. Basketball award, as voted on by members of the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan.
Morris gives Flint its first Mr. Basketball since Kelvin Torbert in 2001.
