MORRIS IS BULLDOGS' VERSION OF KENDRICK PERKINS

Edmond Memorial center Shaquille Morris only scored seven points in the Bulldogs' 62-50 win over Edmond North in the championship game Saturday of the Edmond Open basketball tournament.

But much like Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder, the 6-foot-8, 260-pound Morris contributes in ways that don't show up on the stat sheet, said Edmond Memorial coach Shane Cowherd.

“The impact of what he does on the floor on both ends in occupying so many bodies opens up opportunities for others to make plays,” Cowherd said.

“He would like to have a bigger impact scoring as most kids would, but he played a very, very solid game in all aspects for us outside of the foul trouble.”

Morris has signed with Wichita State.

The tournament features 22 teams.
