I thought that when Coach Fox was out scouting Dwayne Polee that he also should have checked out Reggie Murphy.
Murphy was the key to several important victories for Westchester High. While Polee had 20 points and 10 rebounds in the California state championsip game, Polee's coach felt that the story of the game was Reggie Murphy. His presence in the paint led Mater Dei to attempt lots of outside shots. Westchester took the long rebounds and converted on the other end. Murphy finished the contest with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
Although he fouled out of Westchester's game against Oak Hill, Murphy picked up MVP honors for his 12 points and 8 boards.
Murphy signed to go to to junior college at Casper College. Since Jeremy Price and Chris Barnes will be graduating and UGA lost signee Cady Lalanne to eligibility issues, we will need a lot of help in the post for 2011. I say we should watch Murphy's development with a keen eye.
