Brennen Murphy: Throwing down, flying high

BOBBY STEVENS / THE CHRONICLE

COTTAGE GROVE – With a 5-4 record, the Cottage Grove Lions aren’t exactly a high-flying bunch.

It was refreshing, though, for the Lions and their fans to see senior star Brennen Murphy earn his wings again. Murphy scored a career-high 30 points on the first day of the Cottage Grove Holiday Tournament, lifting the Lions to a thrilling 72-69 victory over South Umpqua. 

Stayton won the two-day tournament, topping Cottage Grove 54-45 in the championship game on Thursday, Dec. 22.
