Sophomore’s 3-point prowess translates to success

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.
