Murphy fitting her role, leading H-F from the point

Jaeda Murphy is a point guard's point guard. 

The diminutive Homewood-Flossmoor junior is a pass-first, defend-the-perimeter, make-things-happen sort of player who says she always thinks about the team before herself.

“Coming into the season, I didn’t really have any goals set for me. I was just coming out here to play, to be able to work for my team to get wins,” Murphy said.
