Aaric Murray started his college career at LaSalle. After averaging 15 points and 8 rebounds per game his sophomore year the 6'11 big man was dismissed from the University. Murray then transferred to play for Bob Huggins at West Virginia, where he averaged 9 points and 6 rebounds a year ago. Murray was dismissed once again, this time from Morgantown.
No one was sure if Murray, who graduated this Spring, was done with college basketball or would seek to play his final year elsewhere. The answer to that is clear now as Murray has enrolled at Texas Southern.
Former Indiana and UAB head coach Mike Davis coaches Texas Southern and told USA Today:
"Aaric Murray will be a big addition to our team and he will give us a chance to compete at the highest level of the SWAC,"
Texas Southern started last season going 1-13, but the Tigers finished the year with a 17-14 mark. Davis' squad was banned from the SWAC tournament. Their elgibility is now back and Murray will also be eligible right away.
