Throughout her NU basketball career, Morris averaged 8.2 minutes per game, 0.9 rebounds per game and 0.6 assists per game. 

In high school, Morris was named a member of the Naismith High School Player of the Year Watch List, a McDonald’s All-American nominee and Big North Player of the Year. When she joined NU, she filled the shoes of Abi Scheid. 

The abrupt switch in schools and in sports comes as a shock for many NU supporters. With Morris’ exit, the Cats will aim to find a forward to fill her shoes on the court.
