College Basketball: Iowa to Host Portland State Tonight

Iowa City — 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 and is looking to do that again tonight when they Hawkeye men play host to Portland State.

“Last year I was playing a different role and this year I wanted to be assertive as much as I can. I have been getting more confident by the game and that’s a big thing for us.” Murray said.

Tonight’s game will tip at 6:00 p.m. from Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

This will be Iowa’s last tune-up tilt before taking on Virginia and No. 3 Purdue next week.
