With Keegan Murray now in the NBA, twin brother Kris Murray is expected to take on a bigger role for Iowa basketball in 2022-23.

At Tuesday’s Big Ten Media Days, Hawkeyes coach Fran McCaffery noted a change he wants to see from Murray this season. McCaffery wants Murray to focus on being more aggressive with the ball.

Murray enters his junior season having scored 20 points or more just twice in his career. After logging just 41 minutes over 13 appearances as a freshman in 2020-21, Murray saw his role greatly increase in 2021-22. As a sophomore, Murray established himself as Iowa’s top scorer off the bench with 9.7 points per game, highlighted by a career-high 29 points against Indiana on Jan. 13, 2022.
