Iowa Basketball Cruises vs. Omaha

IOWA CITY, Iowa – The comparisons between Kris Murray and his twin brother Keegan are dismissed in the Iowa dressing room.

But forward Patrick McCaffery couldn’t resist noting the similarities between the two Murrays after Kris scored a career-high 30 points in Monday’s 100-64 win over Omaha at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

“How many hard punches did Keegan take last year? Not many,” McCaffery said. “It was just easy.”

And then McCaffery reflected on Kris’ night – 13 of 17 from the field, including 11 consecutive makes in the first half. It was so similar to what McCaffery saw last season.
