“Keegan Murray is a star. He is one of the best players I have seen in this league in some time. After spending time watching him on film, seeing him in person, watching him warm up… he seems like a hell of a kid. His dad was a hell of a guy.

Business as usual for potential top-10 pick Keegan Murray: 35 PTS on 21 shots, 8 REBS, 3 BLK while splashing 5 of 6 triples. Doesn’t say a whole lot or show much emotion but his productivity speaks for itself. Always around the ball. Release looks quicker than a year ago. Stud. pic.twitter.com/nXAAcUsvhY
