As the second-leading scorer for the Chaminade men’s basketball team, Bennie Murray has a habit of coming up big.

The senior guard, a Will C. Wood High graduate, had three outstanding outings last week capped by a season-high 34 points in a 95-83 win over Academy of Art. He was more accurate from beyond the arc (4 of 6) than from the line (6 of 11) and was 12 of 15 overall from the floor.
