Murray scored a tournament-best 32 points in Iowa’s thrilling victory over Indiana in the semifinal round on Saturday. He capped an impressive run by posting a double-double in a 75-66 win over Purdue, scoring 19 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.
In Iowa’s first two wins against Northwestern and Rutgers, Murray scored 26 points in 8 rebounds in each. It was as dominant of a four-game stretch as we’ve seen from any player this year.
Murray is averaged 23.6 points and 8.6 rebounds per game this season. The Hawkeyes are looking to carry that magic from Indianapolis into March Madness.
Iowa will start its NCAA Tournament run on Thursday, playing No. 12 seed Richmond at 3:10 p.m. ET. The game will air on TruTV.
