Hampton senior Meghan Murray, one of the WPIAL’s top point guards, makes fast decisions on the basketball court.
She also wasted no time during an official visit to Kent State last weekend.
The 5-foot-5 Murray, on her first trip to the school, committed to the Division I Mid-American Conference program before the visit was over.
“It was so nice,” she said. “The campus was beautiful. The program, I love the coaches and the girls. Their facilities were super-nice. I loved it overall … so I just committed.”
Murray’s other Division I offer was from Niagara. She had a host of D-II suitors, including PSAC schools Mercyhurst, IUP, West Chester and Shepherd.
Murray, who this winter will be a fourth-year starter for the Talbots, averaged 19.7 points, 5.6 assists and 2.3 steals last season and earned unanimous first-team all-Section 2-5A honors. She has scored 1,032 career points and is on pace to become the program’s all-time scoring leader.
