Murphy, who transferred to Trigg before his junior year, averaged 7.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in his first season as a Wildcat and 8.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in 2012-13 when Trigg won the 5th District and advanced to the semifinals of the 2nd Region Tournament.
“I’m so delighted that Dee is taking this opportunity to continue his basketball career,” said Mike Wright, former TCHS head coach who retired after the 2012-13 season. “He is a yes-sir, no-sir young man. He plays defense and is one of the better defenders I’ve ever coached. He understands how to guard somebody away from the ball and realizes that keeping that person from getting the ball will keep them from scoring. He always guards best player on the other team, he is unselfish, and at only 17 years old, he’ll redshirt his first year and will grow and get stronger."
