Cincinnati native Victoria Morris, who started her collegiate career at Old Dominion in Norfolk, Virginia, now playing for Rutgers University for her last year of eligibility, finished Monday’s night game against Ohio State University with 14 points despite the 61-57 loss in a pulsating match.
Throughout her basketball career, she’s had a great support system; with friends and family traveling from various states to celebrate her milestone.
“Every time I step on the court and see my family out on the stand, they give me love, and it gives me the confidence to play at the highest level,” Rutgers player Victoria Morris said.
The family has been traveling statewide to watch Victoria Morris play during her basketball career.
“We came up here fifty deep to see Morris played, and we support her wherever she goes. #5 Victoria Morris is a huge factor in any game that she plays in, and we believe that the coaches should realize that she has what it takes to lead a team to victory,” members of Victoria Morris said.
Morris advises incoming basketball players; “When you come out on the floor, you want to leave it all out there for your teammates, your coaching staff, your program, the community that supports you, and of course, your family. Your support group will cheer you on and give you energy wherever you go,” Morris added.
She is majoring in Criminal Justice and hopes to one day become a detective. At Old Dominion University, she averaged 15.7 PPG during her senior season and finished her career at the school with 1379 points, ranking 23rd all-time.
