Bobby Hurley is not well-liked around college basketball. Most find him to be annoying, one of the first truly obnoxious Blue Devils players under Coach K. Maybe it’s because he helped the coach win his first two national championships. Maybe it’s just because he really is annoying.

sun devils’ Bobby Hurley Hit By Errant Pass

Anyway, here’s a video of him getting hit in the face:

An errant pass during the ArizonaArizona State game careened into the 47-year-old coach’s face. He then fell to the ground and threw a tantrum about it. I’m not really sure why.

To give him credit, Hurley has turned Arizona State into a respectable basketball program. They even made the NCAA Tournament last season. And this year, he finally knocked off Arizona State. It took overtime but he finally beat them 95-88.


There was an extra meaning to this game. Rather than just watching film and changing the game plan, he called the team out onto the court. They read out the scores of all the games he’d lost to Arizona. Then, he ran the length of the court 79 times, one for each point Arizona outscored him by.

Guard Remy Martin scored 31 points for Arizona State and had eight assists in the game. Rob Edwards scored another 19. And somehow, 6-foot-8 Zylan Cheatham pulled down 22 rebounds.

Arizona was led by Ryan Luther and Justin Coleman, who had 19 points each. Luther also added nine rebounds and three assists. Coleman pulled down only one board but dished out nine assists.

There’s no word on how Hurley’s face is. Presumably, the win over longtime rival Arizona should ease any pain. The Sun Devils take on Washington State on Thursday.
