Murphy
Minnesota's Jordan Murphy (198-F-97) has been named Big Ten Player of the Week for week one of the regular season. Murphy had 35 points and 15 rebounds in Minnesota's opening night win over USC Upstate. This is the second time that Murphy has earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors. The last Gopher to score 35 points in a game was Andre Hollins, who posted 41 points on Nov 3, 2012.

About last night
PROVIDENCE, R.I. --Providence brought plenty of energy to its matchup with No. 14 Minnesota. However, the Golden Gophers had the toughest player on the court, and he showed up when it counted.

Jordan Murphy had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Minnesota outlasted the Friars 86-74 on Monday night.

Murphy scored 15 points in the second half, leading the Gophers back from a three-point halftime deficit.

"I can remember five baskets where it just was him and nobody in the gym," Providence coach Ed Cooley said of Murphy's efforts down the stretch. "He went through us, over us, around us, and-ones ... he's a pretty special talent."

The Gophers tied it up 55-55 in the second half, then used a 23-11 run to take control.

"I definitely like the resistance. It's definitely something that makes you stay on your toughness," Murphy said. "That's to their credit, they brought that out of us and we played like a team and we were tough together. We're hard to stop when that happens."

Royce O'Neale has found a home with the Jazz - 2 days ago
By Kyle Goon The locker room floods with reporters looking for quotes after a game. There's typically a huddle around a few of the game's star players, and in a cramped space, other players can find themselves tiptoeing around a crowd. Donovan Mitchell found himself in a position he never has been in before after the Jazz held off the Washington Wizards 104-101 last Wednesday night. Mitchell, instead of being the center of attention, had to squeeze past reporters who were crushed in aro...   [read more]

BY MARVIN FRANCE "It's kind of a good story," new Breakers import Rakeem Christmas(206-F-91, college: Syracuse) said in a rather laid back manner as he sat down to share his basketball story. From growing up playing baseball in the Virgin Islands to gracing the courts of the NBA and having the ear of Michael Jordan, that was kind of an understatement. "I started playing basketball real late," Christmas told Stuff. "I went to the States to have fun and be with my aunt and then it starte...   [read more]
