(WYMT) - Before she goes on to play professional basketball, Bell County native Maci Morris will host her own basketball camp. The former UK star will host the camp at Middlesboro High School, where her dad Lewis Morris is the boys' basketball head coach.

Morris was fantastic for the Wildcats the past four seasons and topped it off with a great year in 2018-19, averaging 15.1 points per game with a team-best 75 3s and 45.2 percent from long range. Morris' high percentage from long range was one of the best marks in the nation, sitting first in the Southeastern Conference and sixth nationally in that statistic. The guard scored in double figures in 26 games in 2018-19, including eight games of 20 or more.

The native of Bell County, Ky. has left her mark on the UK program as one of the best to ever play for the Wildcats. Morris ranks sixth all-time in scoring with 1,692 points while her 252 career 3s made ranks second all time. The guard connected on 41.1 percent of her 3-point attempts during her career, ranking her at the top of UK's all-time list in that category. In all, Morris hit at least one 3 in 107 of 129 career games.
