DURHAM—When Alex Murphy came to Duke, he was a consensus top-50 recruit. After redshirting last season, he was a preseason starter this year but had played 14 minutes total in the seven games before Delaware. And that was frustrating, he said.
But against an overmatched Blue Hens team Sunday, Murphy logged 21 minutes, scored 10 points, grabbed seven rebounds and recorded a block and a steal as No. 2 Duke dominated from start to finish for an 88-50 victory.
“The success that we're having and finally now becoming a part of it and developing the bench, in a game like today where everyone played well, it's hard not to be happy when we're doing this well as a team,” Murphy said.
