Micheal Morris has a chance to end his career at Colorado State as one of the most dynamic guards to ever wear the green & gold. Currently, Micheal sits in ninth place in career assists (304) at CSU while ranking fifth in career blocked shots (111). Morris also needs just 16 steals to move into CSU's top 10 in career swipes. He ranked in the top three on the team in steals, blocks and assists a year ago. In 2005, Morris ranked seventh in the Mountain West Conference in assists and was also in the top 10 in steals and blocked shots. Morris, in 2005-06, has a chance to be the first ever Ram to lead his team in assists all four years at CSU. He will also continue to add to his blocked shots total, marking the most by a guard in CSU history.
2004-05 JUNIOR SEASON
Morris ranked seventh in the Mountain West Conference in assists averaging 3.11 per game while ranking fourth in the league in assist/turnover ratio (1.32). The Katy, Texas native led the team for the third year in a row in assists and moved into ninth place on the career assists list at CSU with 304 to close out the year. In 2005-06, Micheal could become the first player in CSU history to lead the team in assists in all four seasons with the Rams.
Morris led CSU with 36 steals on the season ranking 10th in the MWC in the category. Morris also ranked 10th in blocked shots in the MWC while hitting 78.3 percent of his free throws, the 11th best mark in the conference.
Micheal's best game as a distributor came against San Diego State when the junior netted 11 assists, the highest single-game total by a Ram since 1997.
Morris' other notable performances came in an eight-rebound effort against UNLV and a four-steal effort versus Wyoming, both career highs. He also played a career-most 45 minutes in CSU's win over San Diego State and sparked the Rams' win over Nebraska-Omaha with a 4-for-4 performance from three-point range and 18 points.
2003-04 SOPHOMORE SEASON
Morris' fine season was highlighted by one of the most amazing plays in school history when he scored six points in less than one second including the game-winning steal and three-point basket as time expired to defeat Purdue.
Micheal started in 19 of 24 games during the year while leading the team in assists and blocks. He recorded a career-best 24 points to go with seven rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots in a Jan. 24 win over San Diego State.
Morris missed a span of three games due to a hamstring strain but finished the season fifth on the team with 7.3 points per game.
2002-03 FRESHMAN SEASON
Morris played in all 33 games including 22 as a starter. He led the team and finished among MWC leaders with 121 assists, setting a new freshman school record. He also set the CSU freshman mark with 44 blocked shots and tied teammate Matt Nelson for team honors in the category.
Micheal posted a career-best five blocked shots against San Diego State and had a team-high 17 points including the game-winning three-point shot against Utah.
During the season, Morris had three or more blocked shots in six games, the most by anyone in the Mountain West. Micheal also had four or more assists in 18 of 33 games en route to the school's ninth-best season in terms of distribution.
Micheal was a three-year letterwinner for Cinco Ranch High School where he was a starter and the team's top player since the school came into existence in 2000. He led CRHS to the state playoffs twice and in 2002, they lost to two-time defending Class 5A champions Willow Ridge. In 2001 he averaged 16 points, six rebounds and six assists per game and, as a senior, netted 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists per night. He is the school's all-time leader in scoring, assists and blocked shots.
