"Our point guard Jordan Kinney, he's, in my eyes, the best point guard that we have in this league," Morris said. "I call him the leader, because he puts us in the right positions. He calls the plays."
While Morris may have carried the team last season, this year, he said, the team plays deep.
"We all can get off our own shot," he said. "We know that at any moment, if we want to try and get our own shot, we can, but the system is getting everybody else involved."
Morris recorded a game-high 32 points in Capital's season-opener. He finished 10-of-20 from the field, including 4-of-8 from 3-point range. Beyond scoring, Morris led the team in steals, assists and finished second in rebounds behind Grose.
At times, Morris attempted a shot against the wishes of the Capital coaching staff or forced a pass that would have been better held, but for each mistake, Clark said Morris displays greatness in his success.
"Carrington, he's a unique player," Clark said. "I've tried to get him to understand my philosophy and things that will help him if he plays on the next level. He does make some bad decisions, but he plays so hard and he does so many things. You get upset with him, but still you got to let him play, because that's the way he plays."
Similarly, while Capital made mistakes last year during its season of struggle, Clark said he looked for improvement and did not focus on record.
"You can't always estimate your season on wins and loss," he said. "You have to look at other things that occur during the season, and for coaches - a lot of other people don't see these things - the coaches know sometimes when you have a group like we had last year and they're able to compete, that may be as important to a coach as winning."
This season, though, it looks as though the Cougars expect to not just compete on a regular basis, but win.
Capital next plays at Hurricane 7:30 p.m. Friday.
