Alex Murphy has had a tough college basketball career. Injuries slowed his progress at Duke and thrashed his career at Florida.

He just never got a chance to get going and last year was his fifth and final.


As it turns out, Murphy will get a sixth year and he’ll spend it at Northeastern, near his home. Here’s hoping it’s a wonderful year.
