Tri-C’s Hattie Murphy Named All-OCCAC
Freshman forward grabs honor after leading the Triceratops in rebounds
Crashing the boards for Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) helped Hattie Murphy crash the 2018-2019 all-conference team for the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference.
Murphy received Honorable Mention All-OCCAC honors after leading the conference in offensive rebounds. Overall, she averaged 10.4 rebounds per game — tops for the Triceratops and fourth in the conference.
The forward also averaged 12.5 points per game, second-highest on the team. Her scoring increased significantly over the last month of the season, highlighted by a 34-point outburst in a victory over Hocking College.
Murphy’s game against Hocking helped her win a conference Player of the Week award — the first for a Tri-C women’s basketball player since November 2017.
The freshman from Detroit, Michigan, is studying mechanical engineering technology at the College.
The team ended the season with a record of 10-17 and seventh in the conference.
