Area Lead Guard Showcases Skills In AAU Event

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a detailed look at the individual game and spring AAU progress of an East Coast based point guard in Winston Morgan, who will play the majority of his summer minutes with the Unique All Stars ...

Winston Morgan, a 5-foot-11 point guard from East Catholic High School in Manchester, Connecticut, has produced a fine spring so far competing for the Unique All Stars' 16 and under AAU program. He continued to make progress in his individual game playing for the Albany City Rocks in an event held in Atlanta, Georgia last weekend.

"Winston played tough defense," said Unique All Stars head coach, Torrel Harris, Sr. "He hit some tough three pointers and help run the team effectively."

The Rocks lost in the playoffs to the Ascension Jaguars, a team that made it to the final four.

Previously, Winston scored 14 points and handed out 12 assists to help the Unique All Stars claim a victory at the Boo Williams tournament in Virginia. He rolled over an ankle later on the the event. However, he'll be a big impact player for Torrel Harris, Sr.'s AAU program this summer.

Previously, Winston sparked his team to the silver category championship game of the tournament held in Baltimore, Maryland. Winston averaged 14 points, eight assists and four steals per game, showing nice lead guard skills.

WHAT TORREL HARRIS, SR. THINKS OF WINSTON MORGAN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"Morgan averaged 19 points, seven assists and two steals per game last season," said Torrel Harris, the head coach of the Unique All Stars.

"He led his team to the quarterfinals in the State tournament and was voted team MVP and All Conference," added Harris.

TORREL HARRIS' DESCRIPTION OF WINSTON MORGAN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

Winston rolled his ankle during a recent tournament but should be better soon. His strength as point guard is his ability to run a team, his defense, outside shooting and his ability to get into the lane and create. He has the ability to make other players better."

Harris stated Morgan will play this spring and summer with the Unique Allatars 16's & under team.

"As the coach of Unique All-Stars I have looking for points guard of Winston's ability for the past 10 years. He's a younger Chris Paul in the making." Winston is a member of the 2014 class.
