Assigned Reading: Aaric Murray making the most of his third-chance

Aaric Murray is one of the most intriguing stories in college basketball this season.

A former top 100 recruit, Murray is talented enough to make, at the least, an NBA summer league roster. But after burning out at both La Salle and West Virginia — you know it’s a bad sign when Bob Huggins gives up on you — Murray landed at Texas Southern.

They play in the SWAC, also known as basketball’s no-mans land.

Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom, and that’s precisely what happened with Murray, who has been terrific for Mike Davis and TSU this season. That includes a 48-point performance in a win at Temple last week.

CSN Philly put together a terrific feature on Murray, who is making the most of his third chance.
