University of Tennessee at Chattanooga head coach Katie Burrows announced the addition of transfer Karsen Murphy to the women’s basketball 2021-22 roster.

 

Murphy, a transfer from the University of Montana, makes the move to the Scenic City from Billings, Mont., after one season with the Grizzlies. She appeared in 12 games as a rookie, making her collegiate debut against Utah State in the season-opener.

 

She scored a career-high seven points against College of Idaho in 11 minutes on the floor.

She pulled down four rebounds on the road at Northern Colorado. She averaged 4.4 minutes, 1.1 points and 0.9 rebounds per game.

 

She graduated from Dawson County High School in 2020 earning 11 letters in basketball, volleyball and track and field. She was voted DCHS Kenny McGovern Outstanding Female Athlete and was a first-team Northeastern A and a three-time all-state performer. Murphy led her team to the Class A state tournament her sophomore year.

 

As a member of the volleyball team, she was first-team all-conference and all-state her senior season while helping the Red Devils to a third place finish at the state tournament.

 

The 6-0 Murphy swept the high jump and triple jump titles at the 2019 state track and field championships. She set a new Class A record in the triple jump at 37-11.5 and placed second in the high jump.

 

Murphy is the daughter of Wade and Michaela Murphy and is the oldest of six. She has two brothers and three sisters. Her dad played basketball at Dawson Community College and her mom at Western Montana College.

 

She joins incoming freshmen Destiny McClendon from Lake Oconee Academy in Greensboro, Ga., Leah Jones of Northpoint Christian School in Southaven, Miss., and Addie Grace Porter from Lebanon (Tenn.) High School.
