Morrill’s career ends after Aggies’ close loss to Wyoming in MWC quarterfinals

first_img Related Utah State’s Stew Morrill coaches final game LAS VEGAS — As Stew Morrill watched Jalen Moore’s shot from 60 feet sail over the top of the backboard as the final buzzer sounded, he realized his long and storied basketball coaching career was over.Morrill’s Utah State Aggies had fought and scrapped just like they had all season and nearly came up with a miracle finish before falling 67-65 to Wyoming in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Conference Tournament Thursday afternoon at the Thomas & Mack Center.Morrill announced two months ago that this would be the final season of a highly successful 29-year coaching career, including the last 17 years at USU – all winning seasons — and that he hoped his team could progress through the MWC tournament while keeping his career going a little longer.Utah State played Wyoming even for most of the game and even led by as many as seven points in the second half, but runs of 12-0 and 7-0 by the Cowboys were too much for the young Aggies to overcome as they finished the season 18-13.“It’s kind of weird to be done,’’ Morrill said when asked about this being his last game. He said he obviously hoped to win three games and get an NCAA berth and said a pair of wins would have perhaps earned his team an NIT bid.But he quashed any possibility of his team playing in CBI or CIT tournaments, saying, “Our season is over. At this point, we just feel like it’s best for these kids to concentrate on their academics … and get ready for a new coach rather than play in other events like the CIT or CBI. We will not be pursuing those.’’When the Aggies broke away from a 26-26 halftime tie to lead 41-34 on a 3-pointer by Chris Smith at the 14:17 mark, things were looking good for the Ags. But the Pokes, who will meet Boise State in Friday’s semifinals, went on a 12-0 run as the Aggies failed to score on four straight possessions. That, according to Morrill, was the difference.“I think the difference was a stretch in the second half of about four or five possessions where they got just too good of shots,’’ he said. “They got layup opportunities driving the basketball. We couldn’t get them stopped during that stretch.’’Still, USU hung tough and came back to tie the game at 51 on an inside shot by Moore, but a couple of turnovers by Darius Perkins and a rushed shot by Smith, allowed the Cowboys to score seven straight and lead 58-51 with 3:45 left.In last year’s MWC quarterfinals, the Aggies overcame a nine-point deficit in the final 90 seconds to beat Colorado State, and they faced a similar deficit Thursday, trailing by nine with under two minutes left.The Aggies nearly pulled off another miracle after Perkins sank a 3-pointer, JoJo McGlaston hit a layup, Moore sank a 3-pointer and Perkins hit another three with four seconds left to cut the lead to two at 67-65 with 2.3 seconds left. The Aggies quickly fouled Charles Hankerson Jr., who missed both free throws.Moore, who sank a memorable half-court shot at the buzzer to give Sky View a win in the 4A state semifinals in 2013, had a chance to repeat the feat as he grabbed Hankerson Jr.’s miss, took a couple of dribbles and let one go from beyond halfcourt.“It was on target, just too far,’’ Moore said. “That’s a low‑percentage shot, a once‑in‑a‑lifetime kind of thing. It just didn’t fall this time.’’Moore led the Aggies with 17 points and seven rebounds, while David Collette scored 11 and Smith and Julion Pearre each scored 10. Pearre also had a team-high five assists.Josh Adams led the Cowboys with 19 points and six assists, while Hankerson Jr. scored 16, Larry Nance Jr. had 13 and Riley Grabau 11.Morrill called it a “tough way to end the season,’’ but he looks forward to his retirement and said he was touched by a pre-game presentation of a first-class trip for two to the Bahamas, provided by his fellow MWC coaches.“That will be fun,’’ he said. “I’m looking forward to new things and new challenges, mostly relaxing for a little while.’’center_img Utah State basketball analysis: Aggies get bounced from MW tournament by Cowboyslast_img read more
