From the FreeP: Dom Morris grows into key player on men’s basketball team
By Christopher Dela Rosa/DFP Staff
During the spring of 2011, Dom Morris was just a freshman enjoying the ride as the Boston University men’s basketball team traveled to Tulsa, Okla., to play in the NCAA Tournament.
That year, the Terriers took on the No. 1-seeded Kansas University in the second round and were able to stay competitive with the Jayhawks for most of the contest. Going into the half, the Terriers were only down by four points, largely because of a stellar scoring output from then-senior guard John Holland.
“It was great, we worked hard as a team to make it there,” Morris said. “It felt like we deserved to be there.”
Unfortunately, the Terriers could not capitalize on their great first half and they fell by a score of 72–53. Morris had nine points and an assist in that game.
Despite the loss, to this day, the memory of Mar. 18, 2011, is one of Morris’ fondest memories as he and the Terriers enter the 2013-14 season.
