"It's something that I've been doing my whole life. You just have to want the ball. That's the only way I can go get it."
Morris didn't have to follow his own shot often. He sank 10-of-16 attempts, with six of those makes coming on nine shots in the first half.
Others got involved as well. Senior forward Austin Coleman had 15 points, sophomore forward Brad Grose had 13 and Morris finished with a game-high five assists and shared the team lead in steals with three, a number also grabbed by sophomore guard Jordan Kinney.
Morris did not play in the Vikings' 65-62 win over the Cougars on Jan. 30.
"He made the difference in the game early," Ripley Coach Craig Harmon said. "We couldn't contain him. He's too quick, and that's how he gets a lot of his boards."
Vikings junior forward Kade Harrison led the Vikings with 19 points, but had three of his four 3-point field goals in the first half. After halftime he was 1-of-5 from long range.
Senior guard Casey Smith also scored in double figures for Ripley, finishing with 12 points.
Capital advances to the Region 3, Section 1 semifinals Wednesday, when they will take on top-seeded and third-ranked South Charleston (20-2) at the South Charleston Community Center.
