Our post offense was really good; our passing out of the post was really good.A member of the Big 10 All-Freshman team last year, Murphy totaled 17 points on 5 of 17 shooting in wins over Louisiana-Lafayette and Texas-Arlington.Every time you step on the court its a new chance to see where youre at skill-wise . and just see how you can impact the game, said Murphy, who was 8 of 9 from the field.Sometimes he lets certain things zap his energy, whether hes confused by something or whatever, Pitino said. We just talked about playing through that is the most important thing.Junior Robinson scored 16 points to lead Mount St. Marys (0-3), which fell to 0-18 all-time against Big Ten teams. Elijah Long had 11 points and 5 rebounds.The Mountaineers were 7 of 27 on 3-pointers.This is the game where you got to make 14 to 15 threes.

In three games this season, the Mountaineers have forced an average of 12.3: West Virginia and Minnesota had 13 and Iowa State had 11.BIG PICTUREMount St. Marys: The Mountaineers live and die playing up-tempo, with an aggressive full-court pressure on defense and an offense that likes to shoot from beyond the arc. Mount St. Marys showed flashes on both ends, but needs to be more consistent, especially against teams with bigger post players.Minnesota: The Gophers, who went 8-23 last year, including home losses to mid-majors South Dakota, South Dakota State and Wisconsin-Milwaukee, continue to advantageously use their depth. This was the third straight game at least five Gophers finished in double figures.UP NEXTMount St. Marys continues its season-opening nine-game road trip Friday at George Mason (1-1) of the Atlantic 10.
