Gophers senior Jordan Murphy was named Big Ten men's basketball player of the week Monday, his second such honor of the season. He also becomes the first Gophers player to earn the award six times in his career.
Murphy averaged 21 points and 12 rebounds in a loss at Nebraska and a victory over Indiana, shooting 53.6 percent. He is second in the nation with 18 double-doubles this season.
The Gophers play host to No. 7 Michigan on Thursday.
• All-Star teams of college seniors will compete for a $150,000 prize in a 3-on-3 tournament before this year's NCAA championship game. The tournament will be held at the Mall of America April 5-7. Last year, a Big Ten team that included Gophers guard Nate Mason won the event.
No. 3 Virginia 64, No. 20 Virginia Tech 58: Kyle Guy scored 17 of his 23 points in the first half and the Cavaliers (23-2, 11-2 ACC) outlasted the host Hokies (20-6, 9-5). Virginia Tech entered third in the nation in three-point shooting at 41.8 percent but went 3-for-28 against the Cavs.
