Inside the Play: Manufacturing offense for Jordan Morgan

Jordan Morgan has developed more in the last two years than many expected throughout his career. He’s transformed his body and developed into an effective player around the basket but he’s not an individual offensive threat. Michigan isn’t going to throw the ball to him on the block six or seven times per game and let him isolate with his back to the basket. His scoring is...
