    Shin injury has Morgan on sidelines
    Thursday, December 7, 2006
    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    EAST LANSING, Mich. Former McKinley High School star Raymar Morgan missed Michigan State's game with IPFW on Wednesday night and could be sidelined for close to a month with a stress reaction of the right shin. Morgan, a 6-foot-7 freshman power forward, has a third-degree injury. A fourth-degree injury is a fracture.
    He won't feel as bad if his teammates play the way they did in an 80-43 win over IPFW on Wednesday night.
    "I think the guys filling in did well," Morgan said. "A lot of guys did. But it's still a strange feeling. I've never been injured before. And I have to take it slow."
    With an estimated recovery of two to four weeks, Morgan could be back for the Spartans' Big Ten opener on Jan. 4 at Iowa. Sophomore Goran Suton got the first crack at filling in at the four spot against IPFW.
    Morgan scored 10 or more points in Michigan State's first six games this season, doubling Sam Vincent's school record for double-figure games in a collegiate debut.
    Morgan's 11.7-point average ranked second for the Spartans, who were 7-2 heading into Wednesday's game. He scored 18 points in an upset of Texas and 18 against Bradley.
    Besides his eight games with 10 or more points, Morgan's 5.6 rebounds per game rank second on a team that leads the Big Ten in rebounding margin at plus-11.4.
     
  4. This could really hurt MSU. He was quickly becoming one of their main scoring options. Now there is even more pressure on Neitzel and I am not sure if he can handle all the scoring load...

    I'm going out on a limb here...

    Morgan is an excellent player, but I'm glad he's not a Buckeye. He is the whiniest player ever when calls don't go his way. I know many of you think Izzo is whiny and maybe it's rubbing off on Morgan, I don't know. I just know I don't like his attitude when a call doesn't go his way.

    PLAYING FOR THE U.S. Michigan State sophomore-to-be Raymar Morgan, a McKinley High School graduate, had 11 points in his Team USA debut Sunday during a 91-75 victory over the China Senior National Team in Dallas.


    New teammates. New coaches. New opponents.

    Raymar Morgan, though, remains the same as he makes his USA Basketball debut.

    The McKinley High School graduate is looking to bring ?energy? and anything else that?s needed to help the USA Men?s Under-19 World Championship team.

    ?It?s a chance of a lifetime,? Morgan said.

    Morgan takes mom's advice to heart

    [FONT=Verdana,Times New Roman,arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Ex-McKinley player plays more aggressive at Michigan State

    Michigan State?s Raymar Morgan quickly established himself as one of college basketball?s best freshmen last season.

    But the Canton native, who led McKinley High School to back-to-back state titles, was far from a finished product. More was expected from Morgan this year.

    He was all ears when his mother Carole, a former basketball player, gave him some valuable advice.

    ?Just be more aggressive, have more confidence in my overall game and just stay positive,? Morgan recalled. ?Just play and have fun.?

    Thanks to mom, Morgan has taken steps forward and is having fun this season. He enters tonight?s home game against Ohio State averaging a team-best 17.6 points, and is the Spartans? second-leading rebounder at 7.1 a game.

    Laurinaitis will return for senior year at Ohio State
    [FONT=Verdana,Times New Roman,arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Boone also staying[/FONT]

    COLUMBUS Ohio State kept a two-time All-American and a mountain of a left tackle on the offensive line. Butkus Award winning linebacker James Laurinaitis announced Monday he will play his senior season at Ohio State. A day earlier, offensive lineman Alex Boone decided to stay as well.

    But the Buckeyes are losing one other player. Backup quarterback Rob Schoenhoft, who became a scout team tight end for bowl practices, told the (Cleveland) Plain Dealer that he is transferring to Delaware.

    Laurinaitis and Boone followed the lead of cornerback Malcolm Jenkins, another junior with first-round potential, to stay at Ohio State. All three said there were some things money couldn?t buy, including finality and a senior season.

    Those were the same words Kirk Barton used a year ago. The fifth-year senior was a co-captain this past season as the Buckeyes lost a second-straight national title game.
