Quotes


Murray’s skill-level and aggressiveness is what separates him from your average guard (particularly for a teenager), and that starts with his capacity as one of the most prolific shooter/scorers in the college ranks.

Draft Express

“…Murray is terrific at brushing directly off of the screener and then at getting his feet set before he catches the basketball.
