Murphy knows the importance of improving every day. Although he came off the bench to begin his career, he became a starter before the conference slate began his freshman season and has started every game the Gophers have played since. Senior Dupree McBrayer has been with Murphy every step of his college career — witnessing first-hand how he's worked to improve.

"He's always had the athletic ability," McBrayer said. "Ever since [freshman] year, he's been working on his skill a lot. As you can see, he's got a lot better. He's one of the best players in college basketball. He just wanted to get better every year."

Off the court, those around him say Murphy has a strong work ethic in everything he does. His coach has praised him for being a strong student and model member of the University community.

"He's been an exemplary student-athlete here," Pitino said. "He's represented this whole university the right way. He cares about his academics. He cares about being a good person, he cares about winning. He's been a special player for us."

Minnesota is currently on a short break so players can focus on their final exams. They don't have another game until Dec. 21 when they host North Carolina A&T.

Go Gophers!!
