Servite basketball or whatever you want to call it

Postby Dailydose » Sat Dec 08, 2018 10:43 pm

Does Johnny boy Morris actually think playing the teams he has scheduled preseason will prepare Servite for anything other than another 0-10 league record? The guy is just an embarressment to the school and to the sport. Playing those teams is the cheesiest way to get victories. Get rid of him already and bring in a basketball coach. When you are 6-54 the only thing you should be doing is keeping stats but he may not know how to do that either. Come on Servite, all boys school should be competive in all sports. Johnny Morris you are pathetic.

A few notes:

1. The Friars played and lost to the #1 team in Nevada, Spanish Springs. Spanish Springs is rated 35th in the nation. They are rated higher than all six Trinity League teams. Servite trailed by 9 after 3 quarters, and lost by 24.

2. Trinity league will play only one round of league games, so nobody is going 0-10.

3. Servite will be underdogs in all five Trinity League games, but these boys can shoot 3's pretty well it seems, so an upset or two might be a possibility.

First - the Whittell Tournament is a mid level tournament, in Nevada. Well run, but the competition is just ok. Spanish Springs is currently #1 in Nevada and #35 nationally on MaxPreps because they are 6-0. The MaxPreps computer system simply does not have enough results in yet to generate accurate rankings. Spanish Springs may be one of the best in the Reno area, but statewide they are probably not top 10.
Second - Servite is a team that needs to learn how to win and taking the team to a tournament that they can win a few games in is not a bad idea. However, if you look at their overall schedule it would appear their goal is to make the playoffs by getting to at least a .500 record. Factoring in the 5 losses in the Trinity League their record is 8-9 right now, so they are in good shape.
Third - the school is content with being last in the Trinity League so this scheduling plan with a goal of making the playoffs and making a run in the playoffs appears to be solid, if you accept that they should just be last in the league.

Also - this Servite team is more talented than the past few. Coach Morris does get them to play and compete hard. It will be tough with only one league game against each opponent to snag a win because all 5 games are super valuable. Talent wise the other 5 teams are very similar and I expect that 4-1 would win it out right, but 3-2 could produce a multiple team tie. 5-0 unlikely. Tough to blow a game to the Friars. Splitting my retirement time between Tahoe and the desert. Hope to see a few Trinity League games this year.

If you were running a all boys high school would you keep a coach that has a record of 6-54? Not to mention all the players Morris has chased away with his narcissism and bullying. Morris is a chump and how Servite continues to put up with it is beyond me.

He's 8-62 in league the last seven years. My only hope is Adams has higher expectations for the program than Bowen/Clinton. I've talked to parents whose kids transferred out and the prevailing theme is Morris is a football coach masquerading as a basketball coach. My son didn't transfer but stopped playing basketball at Servite because of Morris. He's not a good fit and Servite basketball will flounder as long as he is at the helm.

Not an unfair observation. Morris was primarily a football player in his student days at Servite--and a very good one I understand--so the basketball program does have more of a football mentality about it, which doesn't address the need to put points on the board. This year we probably have the best collection of freshman talent since Morris began, so it could be a make or break season.

Before my son attended Servite, I heard complaints about Morris so I decided to sit behind the bench for five games and observe his coaching style. I played basketball for Toner in the 80's so I have been on the wrong end of a tongue lashing but what I heard from Morris was appalling. He was nothing more than a bully. I addressed this with Bowen and Clinton and was met with indifference. This pattern of behavior continued until the '16-'17 season when current and past players and parents complained. Morris kept his job but modified his behavior a little. He is unable to properly develop players and his record reflects this deficiency. Instead of building a program, he has decided to play against lesser talent to mask his poor coaching. As I have said, I hope Adams is smart enough to see through the bs.

Morris isn’t just a horrible coach, he is a horrible person. He couldn’t coach football either. He is your typical insecure, narcissist, bully. Don’t forget his best buddy who he made head of basketball operations is sitting in prison for child pornography. How do you keep your job after that? Morris is beyond a piece of s..t. Basketball will always be bottom of the barrel with him involved in any capacity.

, I was waiting for you to start up on basketball. You were slow on the uptake this year. You are correct, Morris is a horrible coach and a vile person. They have 5-6 seniors on varsity. Do you know that not one of them played on the upper levels as freshman? They had 6 kids playing upper levels that year and 4 of the 6 transferred out and 2 of the 6 just quit but stayed at Servite. They could have actually competed in Trinity this year had those kids stayed and played in addition to the kids he has now. Kudos to the kids who stuck it out to get to their senior year(not bagging on them). There are now 50 plus kids who have quit or transferred in the past 5 years. We aren't talking football here where you have 85-100 kids on JV/Varsity and another 60 on freshman. NO ONE CARES! They should have fired him 2 years ago (and I believe they were going to) but someone stopped it. They should have fired him last year but Bowen knew he was out at that point and didn't care. I'm sure he'll make playoffs this year because of all the sorry tournaments he's in (there were several tournaments in Orange County last weekend he could have played in but he would have lost and he knew it) combined with the fact that he will only go 0-5 in league, not 0-10. And the justification this year will be, "well he made playoffs". It doesn't erase or change the fact that his overall league record is pathetic and he's a really, really bad person. , is Spanish Springs better than Bishop Gorman or Findlay prep? I don't think so. I know you are a Servite teacher or administrator so it's in your nature to stick up for the school. Truth is, if you should be sticking up for the kids that have had to suffer through Morris for the past 8 years and the families that have been paying 16-17K in tuition to have a awful experience. The interests of the kids should be put first. Not the interests of a Servite alum who has proved time and time again he shouldn't have this job.

situation with Servite basketball reminds me of SJB football before Negro arrived. Long-time coach protected by administration despite poor results; great potential if school took the sport seriously.

This should be unacceptable at a school like Servite. Amazed that he still has a job.

Yes, that's now more than 100 consecutive posts on your morbid obsession with Servite basketball. I wish we were better, too, but really?

Hire a coach and get rid of the narccistic piece of. The kids should be able to enjoy their high experience without having to deal with someone like Johnny boy Morris.

Your opinion of Coach Morris has been made abundantly clear for some years now. That's not my impression of him, though I am not closely connected to the basketball program. All I can do is support our kids by coming out to the games. With the talented frosh on the squad this year, I'll be interested to see how things play out.

They will quit or transfer once Morris tries to coach them. Anyone who goes to Servite and plays basketball isn’t that good or else they would go to a school with a good bb program and coaches. Servite will never win a another league game as long as Morris is there. Credo.

, hey they beat Maranatha and Jasper.... =D> . He's going to make playoffs because he is playing in a bunch of loser tournaments. If you look at the regular season schedule, league games aside, he isn't playing Villa Park, Canyon or anyone worth a damn. His league recored is 8-62 over 7 years. Will be 8-67 after this year. Get rid of the guy already.

So, the question remains, does the school want a winning basketball program? If they do, what will attract a quality coach to take this program over? The program is in the dumps, their facility is average, and they are an all boys school. Those are some serious challenges. Who is out there and available that could possibly turn this thing around?
