PITTSBURGH (93.7 the Fan) – They were the only team in the ACC last year to shoot under 30% from the three point line and now are a finalists for one of the best shooters available.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Rice 6’8” sophomore transfer Trey Murphy told Rivals.com he has narrowed his school list to Virginia, Villanova, Houston and Pitt.

Murphy is Rice’s all-time three-point shooter making 139 of 356 attempts in his career for a 39% average.  Murphy also led the Owls in scoring at 13.7 points per game and grabbed 5.5 rebounds a game this past season.  Murphy also shot 56% from two-point land.

Last year, Pitt’s best three-point shooters were Trey McGowens with 41 and Ryan Murphy with 42 made and they hope to replace both with Trey Murphy (the line stolen from Eric Hagman).

A decision expected by the end of the month.
