This should get the critics off Tubby Smith's back. For another day, at least. Randolph Morris finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds, and eighth-seeded Kentucky flexed its muscle in the second half for a 67-58 victory over ninth-seeded Villanova in the West Regional on Friday night.[details]
2005 (Junior): Mike started 29 games on the season and saw minutes in 31 games. He missed 2 games due to illness. After starting his first two seasons at the point guard slot, Mike moved to the two guard position. He averaged 10.2 points per game. Had a season high 22 points vs. Notre Dame and 20 points vs. Louisville before getting sick. His production dropped off dramatically as Mike lost weight and was noticably weaker in the stretch run. In 2006-2007, Mike should return to the point, where we will anchor Villanova's guard corps.
2004 (Sophomore): Playing the point, Mike led the team with 3.6 apg and started in all but a handful of games (due to an ankle injury). He had his season high with 20 points in a loss at UCONN and had 10 assists vs. UMBC in early season play. He averaged 8.2ppg on the season
2003 (Freshman): Mike was the only 'Cat to start all 35 games and earned Big East All-Rookie for his strong freshman year performance. He averaged 3.7 assists per game and 9.9ppg. He had a career high 24 points at Boston College and a career high 13 assists vs. Redlands
