Jordan Murphy named Big Ten Player of the Week

The Gopher’s forward had a dominating week on the boards

NCAA Basketball: Minnesota at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Gopher basketball went 1-1 this past week with a disappointing loss at Nebraska. But Jordan Murphy was dominant in both games, earning himself Big Ten Player of the Week honors.

Murphy’s two games last week looked like this

  • 19 points, 13 rebounds at Nebraska
  • 23 points, 11 rebounds against Indiana

Also shot 53.5% for the week.

Not surprising that the Gopher senior had such a week, this award is the 6th for Jordan Murphy in his Gopher career. And his back-to-back double-doubles continues to add to his Gopher record.
