SDSU's Morris Named ESPN.Com's Women's Basketball Player of the Day
March 22, 2010
AUSTIN, Texas - San Diego State senior Jené Morris was named ESPN.com's Player of the Day for her 32-point effort in the team's 74-63 upset of No. 17/20 Texas in Austin on Sunday.
Morris tallied her second career 30-point scoring outing in an NCAA tournament game, as she shot 9-for-18 from the field, including a 5-for-8 mark from beyond the arc. She was also 9-for-11 at the charity stripe and tallied four rebounds, two assists and two steals in only 31 minutes of action.
Her 32 points were the second-most in the 2010 NCAA First Round, trailing only Virginia's Monica Wright, who tallied 34 in a loss to Green Bay.
A year ago, Morris matched her career high with 35 points in a first round upset of DePaul. Her 35 points are the most ever by an Aztec in an NCAA contest and were the most by any player in the first round a year ago.
