Former Razorback Ernie Murry
About Ernie Murry:
Best Players Who Walked-On: Ernie Murry, the pride of Wabbaseka, Arkansas, was a guard on Nolan Richardson's 1989-90 and 1990-91 teams. I've searched in vain for his career stats, but, suffice to say, he seemingly came out of nowhere to play not-insignificant roles on teams that reached the Final Four and the Elite Eight. My best memory of Murray was his completion of a crucial four-point play in the Hogs' thrilling 103-96 overtime victory over the Texas Longhorns in Austin in February 1990 (the game in which Lee Mayberry ended regulation with a game-tying, 30 ft. three-pointer, much to broadcaster Cheryl Miller's dismay).

Ernie earned his Industrial Technology degree from the University of Arkansas. While attending college he was also a member of the Arkansas Razorback Basketball team. He currently lives in Pine Bluff where he is employed by the Pine Bluff School District as the Communities In Schools Director at Jack Robey Junior High School. Mr. Murry is presently involved with Partners for Better Pine Bluff/Youth Adult Partnership, Administrative Board of Junior Deputy of Jefferson County, and ACCESS Board for Single Parents.
