He scored a season-high 25 points November 12th against Northwestern State. Murphy made a season-high 6 three-pointers at La Tech on January 16; and, he pulled down a season-high 10 rebounds at North Texas on January 20.

Unless the NCAA decides to vote and pass legislation to allow immediate eligibility to transfers for the 2020-'21 season, Murphy will sit out the 2020-'21 season and have two seasons of college basketball eligibility remaining.
