Growing up, Jill Morrison was taller than most other players on the basketball court and scored the majority of her points close to the basket.
At 5-foot-7, Morrison was passed in height by many of her peers as her high school basketball career began. She realized the need to add the 3-point shot to her repertoire if she was going to compete with the taller players roaming the paint.
“It was something I wanted to work on, and I knew that as I got close to college,” Morrison said. “I needed it, because I knew at my size I wasn’t going to be a post player.”
Morrison ended her senior year at Winchester Community High School with all-state honors, averaging 27.8 points, six rebounds and five assists per game. She finished her high-school career with 1,882 career points.
