Bobby Hurley is doing the impossible. From my view he’s angling The Titanic. He’s turning the “mirage” that has been Arizona State basketball, into a budding program.
The question for Ray Anderson is, will he be able to keep Hurley in Tempe? Schools are GOING to be calling on the head coach. Jobs like LSU, North Carolina State, and Missouri are already open. Are they better opportunities than Arizona State? I would say ‘no.” However, at some point, some A.D. is going to pick up the phone and reach out, just like Anderson did when Hurley was at Buffalo.
Of the hires Anderson has made to this point of his tenure, none have been better than Hurley.
