He obviously left on good terms, left to start for an elite program closer to home and, as a consequence, may very well be a first round draft pick. Good for him.

I feel like your post explains why some people hold the decision against Murphy...

Rice got him his in into college basketball, helped him develop into a portion of the player he is today, and will get little to no recognition or benefit from that.

I don't personally hold the decision against him, especially since he actually came back to campus. We need to find more Trey Murphy's, but ones that stick around.

I think there's a strong argument to be made that Trey wouldn't be in the running for being a first-round pick had he stayed at Rice. The visibility is much poorer, due to both the respective conferences and chances of making (let alone winning mulitple games in) the NCAA Tournament.

It's looking like Trey has gotten exactly what he was after by transferring.

Not even sure it's an argument - Murphy said as much. He basically told a Richmond paper that he hadn't learned defense until he got to Virginia. Can't be a 3&D guy without the D (boy that's a weird sentence to type).

The fact that Murphy didn't think he could improve his defending enough at Rice, and then Pera hired Greg Howell, who is super young and I don't *think* a defensive specialist, is probably the point that's worthy of more focus.
