Courtney Murphy, a native of Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, is a 6-0 guard. She has played for Sunshine Coast Phoenix on the club circuit, earning team MVP in each of the last two seasons. She helped her team win the adidas Gauntlet Championship in Dallas last year and advanced to the national grand final at Canberra Australia, placing second in the event.
At Mountain Creek State High, Murphy was chosen 2017 Sportswomen of the Year after standout performances in both basketball and Australian football.
“Courtney is a vital missing piece for our basketball program,” said Coach Suzy Barcomb. “We were in need of a big, athletic guard who can score from the perimeter, go off the bounce and provide our team with some mismatch potential. Courtney fits that bill.”
