Tony Murphy (born April 15, 1957) is a retired American basketball player. He is best known for leading NCAA Division I in scoring in 1979–80 with a 32.1 points per game average. Murphy played college basketball at Southern University as a shooting guard. After his career at Southern was over, Murphy was selected in the 1980 NBA Draft in the third round (62nd overall) by the Kansas City Kings, although he never made the team's final roster and, consequently, never played professional basketball.
