Against some solid competition, Morgan scored the ball efficiently, grabbed a good number of offensive rebounds, and limited this turnovers. Playing along side recent NCAA Tournament foe Wayne Chism, Morgan helped lead his team (Roger Brown's) to a second place finish in the tournament.
(I love it, by the way, that the team that took the tournament championship was called "K&D Rounds Lanscaping." Sounds like a team from the bracket my friends and I are placed in for the Gus Macker 3-on-3 tournament we play in each summer. The landscaping guys were led by Trevon Hughes' 21 points in the final, incidentally.)
DraftExpress.com was impressed:
Michigan State’s Raymar Morgan showed that he was worthy of being invited on the first Portsmouth go-around instead of having to wait for a last minute nod, putting up a strong 17 point, 10 rebound, 3 assist performance in his first outing. Morgan looked a lot more athletic than we remembered him, finishing emphatically around the rim repeatedly and crashing the offensive glass ferociously with an excellent second bounce. He played with a chip on his shoulder just like you would expect a pupil to, but did so in a controlled and intelligent manner, even showing some perimeter skills by creating his own shot off the dribble in transition.
I haven't seen much, if anything, on Morgan's NBA draft prospects. I suspect he'd do well to get drafted in the second round, and will likely end up in the D-League or Europe to work on his ball-handling skills and perimeter shooting. Regardless, playing as solidly as he appears to have played in Portsmouth can't be anything but helpful as he pursues a career in professional basketball.
