KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Friends University senior forward Jordan Murdock has been chosen as a second-team NAIA D-II Men’s Basketball All-America performer, the national office released today (Mar. 14).

“Jordan had a great career for us,” Friends head coach Dale Faber said. “Being recognized not only league wise but nationally is a great honor for him.”

Last season’s KCAC Player of the Year and a first-team All-America honoree in 2017-18, Murdock led the Falcons in points (27.4 ppg), rebounds (8.7 rpg) and assists (4.6 apg) this season.

The Wichita native also finished second in the league and third in the NAIA in points per game, while ranking second in the KCAC in assists per game and fifth in rebounds.

This honor is just the latest for Murdock in a career that will be celebrated for many years to come.

Murdock reached the 2,000 career point milestone in his 75th career game at Friends after taking only 41 games to score 1,000 career points.

He helped the Falcons to a 22-10 overall record this season and their first appearance in the NAIA D-II National Tournament since the 2014-15 season.

Murdock isn’t done representing the Falcons just yet, as he was selected to compete in the NAIA Men’s Basketball All-Star game on Mar. 26 at the historic Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo. He will play on the West team, with tip-off set for 6 pm, prior to the NAIA D-I Men’s Basketball championship game.
