Washington will not be an easy game in Seattle. They just beat Colorado in Boulder.
Ugh... Love how Hurley coaches this team so hard. But they’re just not that good. Their guards are way too inconsistent. And their bigs are just not good...
Yeah, I really had hopes for a big season after that hot start, but they have really fallen off a cliff since the Arizona game. Maybe it's a case of all the early success and praise going to the players' heads, or maybe everyone just finally figured out how to shut them down, but it has been a disappointing last month.
On the plus side, they are still considerably improved from a year ago, and Hurley has the program going in the right direction overall. It's just going to take a few more recruiting classes to get over the hump to a consistent elite level, assuming he keeps it going.
Don't understand why Hurley did not have them foul before the 3-pointer at the end of regulation.
Nice win tonight against a pesky Colorado team...
However, the same problems persist for this team and show that against more balanced teams who have quality bigs, the Devils have no chance. They were out-rebounded again tonight and missed every 3 point attempt in the first half. Their defense kept it close and in the second half, they finally started to make their three’s...which shows that if they are hitting their bombs, they can hang. It if they’re not, they will lose.

Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley has agreed to a 5-year extension, source told ESPN.
Great news! Even with the recent leveling off, Hurley is doing a great job. The program is only going to get better under him.
Amazing news! Once ASU can get some bigs that can compete in the paint...Hurley will have this team rolling.
I don’t know if this stops him from leaving but great news.
Overall I think this is very positive. Should help recruiting.
This is not a good basketball team. They played way above their ability in non conference. They have no defense in the paint and on the offensive end have nobody who can drive the ball into the paint. Also Mickey Mitchell screws something up every time he touches the ball. What a disappointment.
No quality bigs to speak of makes the Devils 1 dimensional. If they're not shooting lights out, then they're pretty much screwed. They can't compete on the boards or in the paint, so they have to hustle insanely hard to be consistently competitive. Fatigue is setting in, and settling for contested 3's isn't a recipe for success.
Good win vs USC tonight. We were down most of the night then we hit some big shots in the final 2 minutes. Very entertaining game!
