Murphy
Jordan Murphy (198-F-97) was selected to the All-Big Ten Third Team. Murphy's second-half surge earned him a spot on the All-Big Ten Third Team, the first Gopher to do so since 2013. The 6-foot-6 sophomore is leading the team and ranked fourth among Big Ten players with 8.7 rebounds per game, rising to second in conference-only games (9.4 rpg). Murphy is second on the team in blocks (35) and third in scoring (11.1 ppg). A Big Ten All-Freshman Team honoree a year ago, Murphy has tallied 11 double-doubles which ranks second in the conference. During the Gophers' eight-game winning streak in February and March, Murphy averaged 15.6 points and 12.4 rebounds while shooting 60 percent from the field, a key component of the Gophers' rise to the No. 4 seed and double-bye in the Big Ten Tournament later this week.
Minnesota earned the fourth seed in the Big Ten Tournament, and will face a to-be-determined opponent on Friday at approximately 1:30 p.m. CT at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The Gophers' quarterfinal matchup will be broadcast live on ESPN.

Duncan played for four years at Wake Forest University where he averaged 16.5 points per game. In 1997, Duncan was voted Naismith College Player of the year. During his rookie year, Duncan didn't slow down by avera...   [read more]

Former Wake Forest basketball forward/center John Collins (208-F-97) has been invited to be in the Green Room at the Barclays Center for the NBA Draft on June 22. The Green Room is a special room set aside at the draft site for the invited players plus their families and agents. When their name is called, the player leaves the room and goes up on stage to shake the hand of commissioner Adam Silver and receive a hat of the team they have been drafted by. This is usually followed by an int...   [read more]
