are we talking all 4 years or varsity? you must have at least 10 trips to the free throw line to have 90%.

I doubt he had more than 4 trips during his time in varsity.

Outside of the coaches and basketball manager (Kurt Ruth - Vista Murrieta), Richard had the best basketball mind on the team. I was a close 2nd. :)

Servite has broken into the OC Top 25, in the 22nd spot. They are 12-6.

Have you seen the teams they beat? I would be embarrassed to admit I played some of those teams but that’s only way Johnny Morris gets any victories. It’s a complete fraud. They will get crushed in all league games then say he had a good season. It’s pathetic.

Dailydose, I thought the same thing when I saw they were in the top 25. They haven’t played any of the teams above them and won’t except for the TL teams. No Villa Park, Canyon or Fullerton this year. Those are usually the types of teams they play in non league games. Are they playing in the Nike Extravaganza? Some of the teams they play in January I’ve never even heard of. Pathetic! I think the new president is aware of the basketball situation. If you are inclined, reach out to him and tell him your stories or experiences with Morris. It can’t hurt.

Sonora, and Heritage Christian are higher rated than Servite. If they lose to those two they will probably finish the regular season 15-13.

No surprise there.

Sonora #17 in OC and #172 in the state.

Servite #22 in OC and #346 in the state.

Sonora wins by 5 points, 67-62.

Sonora wins because Morris is a football coach and not a basketball coach.

RPW, agreed. I also saw this on OC Varsity last night...

. So Sonora wasn't even full strength. Servite has some good players on the team but they will never reach their full potential as long as Morris is the coach. It's just the facts.

Has Morris lost the respect of his players and parents? Honestly I have seen only half of Servite basketball game and it lacked the simple things: fundamentals and intensity.

I have said it before but they NEVER should have let Coach Kelly go! He may have been young but he had the best interests of the school and players IMHO and I liked how he handled himself. The program would be in a better state than now.

The LaPalma Generals have as much a chance of being relelvant in hoops as LBP in waterpolo. :mrgreen:

Servite would have the same or better record without any coaches. Morris ruins kids. He has no clue what basketball is. I’d be surprised if any of his teams could do a 3 man weave. I will also bet they don’t do any ball handling drills. There is a reason he won’t let parents watch practices. They guy is a cancer and a scum bag!

Wow, can't believe how Servite's own, crucifies this poor guy. Apparently the Servite administration
thinks he does a good job,no?

he should be crucified. His teams perform well below the rest of the league. His records reflect this. An administration and alumni base that cares about basketball would have gotten rid of this guy a long time ago.

The foundation of a good basketball program starts with fundamentals and footwork.
The first 1/2 hour of practice should be run without a basketball.
Learn to move your feet on defense and play with leverage in the post, box out.
Moving offense.

Servite can be built into something but it starts with the basic mindset.

Talking to some of my coaching friends that are still close to the game in OC and they have heard that Coach Morris is leaving after this year and moving out of the area? Seems like that may be a good decision for all. It’s really strange to read the accounts and feelings the Servite faithful have about this coach. If that stuff is true along with the struggles on the court, transfers out, why would their administration not make a change? If he leaves it bails the admin out. Having an opening is the first step to a new direction. If the school does not prioritize the hire and the impact of what a good basketball program can do for the school as significant, a new coach may not have all he needs to raise the level of the program.

What do you expect when your team is seriously outmanned? Honestly look at the players Servite has on the floor compared to the other teams in the Trinity league. His record is not about the Xs and Os, it’s about the Jims and Joes. John Wooden wouldn’t win a Trinity game either at Servite.
