St. Peter's Liam Murphy dazzles with 30-point shooting performance

6-foot-7 wing Liam Murphy (2020/St. Peter's) has been studying NBA players like Klay Thompson and Luka Doncic closely.

The Eagles' rising senior has a reputation for his ability to shoot the ball, flashing a smooth stroke whenever the ball is in his hands. In Saturday's game against Holy Cross, he surely put on his best impression of those NBA snipers.

Murphy finished with 30 points in St. Peter's win over Holy Cross, playing with every bit of confidence and swagger that comes with being a sharpshooter. By no means did this confidence show up in celebrations or through showboating -- Murphy is far from that of player -- but instead quietly with the shot selection. Murphy was taking and making shots from well beyond the arc. Even with a hand in his face or in tight pressure, Murphy found a way to put the ball through the hoop and did so from almost anywhere on the court.

"I'm putting up hundreds of thousands of shots per day," Murphy said of his greatest strength on the court. "My whole game is built off my shot. I want to keep learning the counters and just study the game -- and good shooters like Klay Thompson, Luka Doncic -- guys like that, just be able to play off my shot and make the game easier for everybody around me."

Murphy says he currently has offers from Arkansas-Little Rock, Saint Louis, LIU Brooklyn, American, Rider, and Lafayette. He's also received interest and has visited Ivy League schools. He says finding the balance between high academics and athletics will be crucial in selecting a school

"The highest academic, I really want to get a major and be able to kind of do something in the business workforce," Murphy said of his dream school. "I'm looking to go into economics and finance and get the best basketball experience, build a great bond with the guys and the coaches, and ultimately get that great degree from one of the schools."

- Murphy, the Eagles’ leading returning scorer this season, will join forces with former St. Peter’s player Jimmy Engles at the Ivy League institute. Engles, a 1986 graduate of the New Brighton school, is Columbia’s head coach. -

- Murphy, who averaged 15.3 points per game with 46 treys a year ago despite missing seven games with an injury, believes he’ll fit in athletically as well. -

- Murphy said Engles plans to use him as primarily a small forward.

"They usually run four-out, one-in sets and he likes that I have the versatility to shoot from the perimeter or get touches in the post,'' said Murphy, who plays for the New York Jayhawks travel program. "I obviously have to earn anything I get (playing-wise). I feel comfortable knowing I’m going to play for a guy like coach Engles, who has a similar background to me coming from St. Peter’s. -

- He received Division 1 scholarship offers from 13 schools before deciding on Columbia, including Cornell, Siena, Jacksonville, Stetson, Binghamton, Manhattan and American. -
