Murray receives St. Joseph’s offer

Moriah Murray is only halfway through her high school basketball career, but the NEPA Elite Clark 17U shooting guard is already receiving offers from the next level.

St. Joseph’s University, a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I program in Philadelphia, extended a full scholarship offer to Murray in the aftermath of the AAU club’s debut performance during a three-day weekend event at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster County.

Murray, who is entering her junior season at Dunmore where she is already a two-time, first-team Class 3A all-state selection by Pennsylvania sports writers, received her first offer from last year. Another Philadelphia school, Drexel University, extended the early offer.

The NEPA Elite Clark team showed off a potent backcourt, including Murray, while going 4-1 in the 11th Grade Division Pool A at the Summer Tip Off.

Murray started 5-for-6 from 3-point range while scoring a team-high 15 points and grabbing 4 rebounds Friday in a 58-42 victory over Comets-Genther GUAA. She was 3-for-5 on 3-pointers in a 50-35 Saturday victory over New Jersey Freedom. Murray had eight points and four rebounds in Sunday’s only game, the team’s biggest win of the weekend, 59-52, over GTS Fusion.

At Dunmore, Murray was named Lackawanna League Division 3 Player of the Year by at the end of her sophomore season, which was halted in the state quarterfinals because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. She was runner-up in voting for the state Class 3A Player of the Year.

Dunmore, a 2019 state finalist, has lost just two games in two seasons with Murray as the leading scorer.

St. Joseph’s is a member of the Atlantic 10 Conference where it went 3-13, along with a 9-20 overall record, in the 2019-20 season.
