Jay Dennis Murphy (born June 26, 1962) is an American former professional basketball player.

He attended high school at Francis T Maloney High School in Meriden, Connecticut. A 6'9" and 220 lbs. power forward, Murphy attended Boston College, in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. He averaged 14.6 points per game in his four year. Murphy was one of the main reasons why Boston College enjoyed incredible success in the early 1980s, leading the Eagles to three NCAA Tournaments - two Sweet 16s and one Elite Eight - and one NIT in his four seasons (1980–84). He was a three-time Big East honoree. He ranks sixth on the school's career scoring list (1,795 points) and seventh on the career rebounding list (763 rebounds).[1]

Murphy was selected in the second round (31st pick overall) of the 1984 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors.[2] He did not play a game with the Warriors as he was immediately traded to the Los Angeles Clippers for center Jerome Whitehead. On December 17, 1985, he was waived by the Clippers. On September 3, 1986, he was signed as a free agent with the Washington Bullets. His final season in the NBA was the 1987-1988 season, during his time with the Bullets. He scored a total of 160 points in his 4 year, 67 NBA game career. Murphy also played in the USBL for Springfield Fame (1985–86) as well as in Europe notably in France and Italy before finally retiring in 1995.

Murphy was inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999. His son Erik played basketball at the University of Florida,[3] and was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft. [4] Murphy's son Alex played at Duke University and now plays at the University of Florida. Both sons have dual citizenship due to their Finnish mother Päivi, and Erik Murphy will play for Finnish national team at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.[5]
