Murray State star Ja Morant is a consensus first-three pick in this summer's NBA draft.

His dual-threat ability to score in bunches and make plays for teammates has made Morant the top-ranked point guard in this year's class. But the letters "PG" hold a different meaning to the 19-year-old prospect.

"I am a point God," Morant told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. "I try to play an all-round game and do whatever I can to help my team win."

Though Morant is confident in his talents, he knows a lot of work remains and that he needs to be on the same page as his teammates before achieving any real success.

"I just start by studying my teammates," Morant said. "Just knowing what their strengths are and know where they like to score the ball from. And I guess just knowing that, it gives you an edge because it makes the job easier."

Morant had a breakout sophomore year, during which he averaged 24.5 points, 10 assists, and 5.7 boards per contest across 33 appearances. He was the only Division I player ranked in the nation's top 10 in scoring and assists.

He flexed his full arsenal with a 17-point, 16-assist, 11-rebound performance in Murray State's NCAA Tournament-opening win over Marquette. It was the ninth triple-double in the history of the tourney since assists became an official stat in the 1983-84 season.
