2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: A versatile scorer Murphy can shoot the ball inside and out all the way to the 3-point shot ... Unlike most young players Murphy has a solid mid-range game the he can shoot from both sides of the floor ... Moves very well without the ball often he can run off picks and shoot off the catch or dribble ... Good work ethic and a very coach-able player who has gotten better each year since arriving at Notre Dame ... Rebounds well considering his lack of jumping ability this speaks volumes of his mobility and how good he boxes out ... Good passer who is very hard to sneak a double team on without him kicking the ball out ... Good free throw shooter who has become very good at drawing fouls thanks to his pump fakes and hesitation moves ...

Weakness: If he works hard on the defensive part of the game he has a tendency to become worn out ... Although he has become stronger he could still use some added upper body strength ... Suffers on defense with quick player not because he's a poor defender but lacks the lateral quickness to defend ... Has shown a lack of stamina because of his poor conditioning ... Athleticism is one of his biggest handicaps in that he's by no means a high riser or possessor of unbelievable quickness ... Needs to continue to become a better back to basket player as of right now he is more comfortable facing up ... Goes through periods were he can fall in love with his jumper and shoot when it may be in his best interest to drive ...
