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."
