Iowa City, Iowa — Iowa sophomore Keegan Murray has quickly adapted to his role as the go to guy for the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Through five games Murray is averaging 25 and a half points and more than nine rebounds. He has posted career highs in each of the last two games.
Murray has connected on 20 of 30 shots in his last two games.
Murray says some young players off the bench are helping the Hawkeyes build depth.
Murray says he was encouraged to take over on the offensive end coming into the season.
Iowa’s soft schedule to begin the season comes to an end Friday night with a game against Portland State.
