Gophers sophomore Jordan Murphy broke out of a mid-season slump in a big way in the last week.
The 6-6 forward was named co-Big Ten player of the week Monday for averaging 21 points, 15 rebounds and two blocks in wins over Iowa and Rutgers.
Murphy had a caeer-high 25 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks in Minnesota's 101-89 double-overtime win against Iowa on Wednesday night.
The San Antonio native followed that up with 17 points and 11 rebounds in a 72-63 win Saturday at Rutgers.
On the season, Murphy is averaging 10.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks this season for the 18-8 Gophers, who take a three-game win streak into Wednesday's game against Indiana at home.
Murphy shared co-Big Ten weekly honors with Michigan senior guard Derrick Walton Jr., who averaged 22.5 points, 6.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals in pair of wins over Michigan State and Indiana.
