Making the show

Bradley centerfielder MAX MURPHY ’15 made “The Show” two days in a row during the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. This show was ESPN’s SportsCenter where Murphy’s late-inning glove work was featured in the Top 10 Plays of the Day. 

On May 22, Murphy made a diving catch in the ninth inning to help Bradley score a 5-3 upset victory over tournament-host Missouri State in an opening-round game. ESPN ranked it the ninth top play of the day. The next day against Southern Illinois, Murphy made a running, over-the-shoulder catch in the eighth inning, earning a sixth-best play of the day honor from ESPN.
