Spalding's Morrison headed to Vandy

Spalding junior Maggie Morrison will take her considerable basketball skills to the Southeastern Conference in 2011-12, accepting a full scholarship to play for Vanderbilt. She chose the Commodores over more than 50 other schools vying for her talents, including Kansas State, Nebraska, James Madison, Richmond, Liberty, Drexel, Rhode Island and Delaware.

Morrison, a 5-foot-8 guard, is a two-time first-team All-County and was a fourth-team All-Met pick as a junior last season. She has been a three-year starter for the Cavaliers, and plays her club basketball for coach Robert Hildreth's Maryland Lady Terps.

Vanderbilt is coached by Melanie Balcomb, and has made 11 straight NCAA tournaments, advancing to the Sweet 16 the past three seasons. Balcomb's teams have averaged 25 wins during her nine years in Nashville, and were 23-10 last season.
