Men's Basketball - Wed, May. 19, 2010
Aaron Morris signs with Georgetown College men's basketball team. The 2008 Mr. Basketball candidate from Madison Central looked seriously at Georgetown when he graduated before picking Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis.

After spending some time there, he most recently played at North Dakota State College of Science. With two years left of eligibility, Morris, seated in the middle with GC coach Happy Osborne on his right and his father Marlon is on his left, is now a Tiger.

Also pictured are MCHS assistant Kenny Roberts, head coach Allen Feldhaus, and assistant Brandon Fritz. 

"We recognized Aaron as a player we wanted back in high school. Our goal is to get as many Kentucky kids that can help us," GC coach Happy Osborne said. "We finished second on him out of high school and we are excited to get him now. He has several friends on the team and he's proven to be strong academically."

The 6-foot-6 forward averaged a team high 15.4 points per game and was second on the team with 6.7 rebounds per game this past season at NDSCS. The Wildcats were 23-9 and lost in the Region XIII championship to Williston.

At MCHS, Morris was averaging 22 ppg and 11 rpg his senior season and is still the Indians all-time leading scorer with 1,980. In his four years, he helped Madison Central to one regional title and an elite eight appearance in the Sweet 16. The Indians worst finish during Morris' years was the quarterfinals of the 11th Region tournament.

"We are always excited about players that played under coach Allen Feldhaus," Osborne said. "We know they can be pushed and are solid fundamentally. And Aaron has the tenacity and athleticism we look for at Georgetown."
