“I hate this for Dominique and for the entire team,” said ORU head coach Scott Sutton. “The good news is that this isn’t a season-ending injury. He’ll be back to practice within a couple of weeks and hopefully return to game action shortly thereafter.”
The Summit League’s second-leading scorer at 18.4 points per game, Morrison has started all 79 games of his ORU career. Last month Morrison became the 28th player in school history to reach 1,000 career points and he currently ranks 23rd in career scoring. Morrison also ranks among the Summit League top 10 in field-goal percentage (.516) and three-point percentage (.434).
“If there is any good news about Dominique’s injury it’s that someone else will have an opportunity to step in and elevate their game,” said Sutton. “We’re going to need someone, or several people, to step up and help fill the void until Dominique comes back.”
A 2010 Summit League first-team selection, Morrison was a preseason first-team all-league pick. He was named Summit League player of the week on Dec. 6 after scoring a career-high 35 points in a win at Western Illinois.
