Eady, Murphy power Cards

Kevin Bavery has been a boys varsity basketball coach for 26 seasons now.

In Bavery’s 13 years at Oregon, two seasons at Cedarburg and 11 years at Middleton, he’s never experienced what he did last Wednesday. Research shows it may not have ever happened inside Middleton’s program.

Cardinals seniors Tyree Eady and Storm Murphy combined for a whopping 58 points and led Middleton to an impressive 85-56 win over visiting Racine Horlick. That’s the most points scored by a Middleton duo in at least 20 years.

Eady shot 10-of-16 from the floor and had 22 of his game-high 30 points in the first half. Murphy had 20 of his 28 points in the first half and shot 10-of-17 from the floor.

Middleton improved to 8-1, while the Rebels fell to 5-3.

“That was a lot of fun,” said Murphy, the Cardinals’ point guard. “Since the (Madison) Memorial game, we’ve moved the ball a lot better and done a great job on offense. Tonight, we got a lot of really good shots.”
