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.
