College game inspired by Batesville ALS fighter Tuesday

Updated: Jan 9

Duke at Pittsburgh game holds deeper meaning tonight

(BATESVILLE, Ind.) -- There is a college basketball game well-worth watching tonight.

Batesville resident Andy Murphy lost his four-year fight with ALS in July.

Throughout his battle, he made it his mission to not only share his story, but to raise awareness for a cure, not just for those living with the terminal disease, but those who will be diagnosed in the future.

"He wants to help ALS become treatable for people in the future because nobody should have to lose a father, husband or sibling to ALS," his wife, Brooke, told The 812 in 2021.

Before moving to Batesville, Andy was the student manager for Bob Knight at Indiana University.

Andy helped create Hoops4ALS, a national organization that unites college basketball coaches, players, and fans to raise awareness for ALS — and promote research and advocacy.

The very first Hoops4ALS game will be played between Duke and Pittsburgh tonight. It will air at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

Andy's legacy continues to live on through his wife and children Kerrigan and Andrew
