Highlight: Cutting Down the Net at Cowboys Stadium
Offensive highlights are not exactly the specialty of Jordan Morgan. Over the course of four years in Ann Arbor, the rising redshirt senior is known for doing the things no one sees on the highlight reels or stat sheets. Defensive positioning, finishing plays at the rim and running the high pick-and-roll are Morgan's main strengths. Those are not exactly going to make a whole lot of signature moments.
Instead, Morgan provided Michigan fans with an unforgettable highlight when he cut down the nets at Cowboys Stadium.
The Detroit product has been through it all with the Wolverines. A 15-17 season while redshirting in 2009-10. Finishing with a 9-9 record in conference play the following season. Suffering a first-round defeat at the hands of the No. 13-seeded Ohio Bobcats after winning a Big Ten conference title in 2012.
All of that is nothing compared to the heartbreak Morgan endured this past campaign, though. After making 53 straight starts, he turned an ankle on January 27. It took longer than expected for Morgan to be game-ready once again.
Even when he did finally make it back in mid-February, things were not the same. By then, Mitch McGary had started to emerge. Morgan could not match the level he played at prior to the injury. This led to him seeing a mere 12 minutes of action through the Elite Eight.
Still, Michigan would not have been heading to the Final Four without Morgan.
Despite being replaced, he never caused any media drama. No whining, complaining or sulking. Team success was more important to Morgan. Cutting down those nets likely meant more to him than any individual highlight. It is just the kind of teammate Morgan is.
