Fighting Irish Athletics | December 1, 2015
One of two players in the 110-year history of the University of Notre Dame men’s basketball program to score more than 2,000 points and grab 900 rebounds, Troy Murphy cemented his mark as one of the most prolific all-around players to don a Fighting Irish uniform during his three-year playing career. He is credited with helping put Notre Dame back on the college basketball map.
A two-time consensus first team All-American and two-time recipient of BIG EAST Player of the Year honors, Murphy will become the eighth inductee into the Notre Dame Basketball Ring of Honor on Saturday Jan. 23, 2015, at halftime of the Notre Dame-Boston College men's basketball game at noon (ET). He will follow six former players -- Austin Carr (2011), Adrian Dantley (2012), Skylar Diggins (2013), Luke Harangody (2010), Tom Hawkins (2015) and Ruth Riley (2010) -- and former men's head coach Richard "Digger" Phelps (2014) into the school's Ring of Honor.
