Murphy
Minnesota senior forward Jordan Murphy (201-F-97) earned a spot on the All-Big Ten team announced Monday, and Tuesday he picked up a pair of additional honors.

In the voting for the Associated Press All-Big Ten Teams, Murphy was selected for a spot on the second team by the panel consisting of writers across the conference footprint.

Additionally, Murphy was selected to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association All-District V Team. Murphy was one of 10 players to earn the nod among the district states of Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

One of the most accomplished players in school history, Murphy led the Big Ten in rebounding with 11.7 boards per game, ranking fifth nationally, and tied for third in the country and conference lead with 21 double-doubles. The San Antonio, Texas, native ranked 15th in the Big Ten and led the Gophers scoring 14.5 points per game, including 23 games with 10 or more points this season and five 20-plus scoring efforts. He has started every game this season and is second on the team in field goal shooting (48.5 percent) and blocks (29) while ranking third in assists (82).

Murphy moved into second place on the Big Ten career rebounding chart (1,272), a new school record as well. His 66 career double-doubles is also second in Big Ten history, while his 1,732 career points rank fifth in Gopher program history.

The Gophers earned the No. 7 seed in this week's Big Ten Tournament in Chicago and will open postseason play on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. against the 10th-seeded Penn State Nittany Lions.

NBA Draft Combine Notebook: Nicolas Claxton Displays Versatility - 6 days ago
CHICAGO - The on-court portion of the draft combine wrapped up on Friday, with two more scrimmages giving prospects a chance to perform in front of the entire league. As a whole, five-on-five play was heavily watered down this year as a vast majority of potential first-round picks opted not to play, aiming to protect their draft stock.
