Hope Christian coach Jim Murphy gets career victory 800

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - Jim Murphy has reached another milestone in his very successful coaching career. The Hope Christian boys basketball head coach has 800 career victories after his team defeated the Highland Hornets 82-64 Friday night.

Highland proved to be a pesky opponent, making the game close as late as the third quarter when they only trailed by four. Isiah Dockery was determined not to let Coach walk away without getting his win. Dockery scored 20 points for the Huskies in the victory. After it was finished, Coach Murphy talked about his accomplishment.

"Eight hundred wins for a coach, but really it's all these players that have, down through the years, made me look good as a coach," said Murphy.

Murphy and his Huskies are seeking another milestone when the postseason arrives. The Huskies will try to win a seventh consecutive championship.
