Editor’s note: This transcription is from the Live with Lind Instagram series. This week, sports editor Andrew Lind interviewed men’s basketball’s sophomore forward Montavious Murphy. Check out the entire video on the K-State Collegian Instagram page, under IGTV videos.
Andrew Lind, Collegian sports editor: “What are you doing to better your game this summer?”
Montavious Murphy, sophomore forward: “Main thing I’m doing is trying to maintain being healthy. Trying to put more weight on, maintain a physical aspect. And just being able to move, I am just trying to get faster and I think I have gotten most fast. I think that would really help me for the position I play, the four, and the different type of position I play. Being able to beat people off the dribble. So the main thing for me is getting healthy, getting my speed up to par, and getting ready.”

Lind: “If the coaching staff had a one-on-one tournament who would win?”
Murphy: “Wow…Coach Weber does this thing at the free throw line and it’s unbelievable and he can’t miss, he just shoots, and he doesn’t miss,” Murphy said. I am going to have to take coach Weber on that one.”
Lind: “What is your favorite Big 12 arena to travel to?”
Murphy: “We have had a lot of great places we’ve gone,” Murphy said. “Last year, West Virginia was a nice trip, just because it was on their main campus, it was kind of cool. I like their set-up. We walked down a tunnel, and it was so deep into the ground. I said I thought we were playing underground, and I got into the arena and I was like ‘Oh my God, it’s huge.'”
