Sonoran Hot Reads: Bobby Hurley compares ASU’s performance to fighting cancer

What even is this?

NCAA Basketball: Arizona State at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

ASU has had a pretty brutal travel schedule, especially for a team that doesn’t play a ton of guys, and that seemed to catch up with the Devils on Tuesday. They got blown out by Purdue in New York, and that performance set Bobby Hurley off:

“For a city that's a blue-collar city and an arena that has so much tradition and so many good players that have played on this court — to look like that, it was embarrassing,” he said. “And then the cause, such a great cause that we're playing for tonight. Did my players play as hard as the people that are going through what they go through in cancer, as families go through in their personal situations? I don't think so.”
