i think her time at UCONN will help her focus for every minute she's in. probably not as a freshman - we can see where KML, Kiah and Brianna have struggled at times their first year, but i agree with her coach and with you - the sky is the limit for Morgan.Her coach on her potential:
The sky's the limit for Tuck, Smith said, if she could focus and remain active an entire 32 minutes consistently.
"She could be a kid that averages 40-45 points and 20-25 rebounds, and she isn't quite around there yet," Smith said.
I was surprised that the article mentioned her as a guard. I find it hard to believe that she's playing the guard position as a 6'2" player. I think they may have erred but apart from that, the article was a wonderful piece. Over the years I've heard of many girls and guys who scored ridiculous amounts of points, averaging over 30 points and 10 rebounds a game and then went to a school where they were just another player. I'm absolutely sure that Morgan is NOT one of those people and that she'll be a major player for the Huskies over her four years in Storrs. It may or may not be immediately but she'll surely have an impact. What I'm thrilled about is what kind of person she appears to be, how hard she works to improve and the impact she has on her teammates and even the opponents she plays again. Very very nice to hear!!!!!!!!!!!
Right you are! The Bolingbrook High School web page has her as a forward.I was surprised that the article mentioned her as a guard. I find it hard to believe that she's playing the guard position as a 6'2" player. I think they may have erred but apart from that, the article was a wonderful piece.
Is it possible to have the best player at each position on one team?
Moriah Jefferson - 1 (with Brianna Banks coming off the bench)
Bria Hartley - 2 (with Caroline Doty coming off the bench)
KML - 3 (with Kelly Faris as the 2nd best)
Breanna Stewart - 4 (with Morgan Tuck as the 2nd best)
Stefanie Dolson - 5 (with Kiah waiting in the wings)
On Deck: Diamond DeShields, Cierra Calhoun
I hope we dont expect to much to fast. These kids have a learning curve. Its going ot take time to adjust and focus under Genos rules. We are going to be very good, but it will take time.
Its almost inimaginable how good this team will be. Morgan will be a Monster. Breanna the Rejector and MJ the Water Bug. Anticapation.Cferr this looks like Murders Row more powerful then the Yankee Lineup . This is truly a Dream Team. .
