Murray State came up short at Alabama last night, but sophomore guard Ja Morant provided plenty for NBA scouts to ogle. He scored 38 points, grabbed 9 rebounds, and dished out 5 assists. Included in the display was the shiniest object imaginable: a coast-to-coast drive that culminated in a savage dunk.
Just pure naked aggression right there. Part of me feels sorry for the rim even though the analytical part of my brain understands it’s an inanimate object.
Morant is now averaging 27.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 9.0 assists per game during this young campaign. That’s Player of the Year material if he keeps it up.
