    Yep... Bagley is a tremendous talent for sure, but he's still not the legit BIG they need... They really need a Romello White, only about 3-4 inches taller. They're out there and why Hurley hasn't been able to consistently secure that guy is troubling...

    I'm trying to think of the last good big man at Arizona State. There has to be players since Ike Diogu and Mario Bennett.

    I was thinking Alton Lister and Sam Williams, but that was in the early 1980s

    They were a couple of the best. Scott Lloyd should be added to the list as well.

    Jordan Bachynski is probably best ASU big man, post-millennium. Not a lot to choose from.

    I don't think it's a matter of Hurley not being able to recruit them. He just doesn't choose to. He has that John Belein mind set of thinking you can win playing an entirely perimeter oriented offense.

    Man that was a pathetic performance last night! Once again they were dominated in the paint and on the boards.
    So again, they tried to win from outside, only they couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn... 1 for 18 from three point land!!! Wow!
    This is one of the worst Sun Devil teams I’ve seen in quite a while... gonna be a long and depressing season.

    I don't recall a shooting stat like that college or professional. This was supposed to have been one of Hurley's better teams until Bagley got hurt.

    It could be worse - Washington lost T home to a really bad Montana team, whose only previous win was against
    tiny Yellowstone Christian College

    Yeah. UTEP isn't a horrible team. ASU was atrocious in the 2nd half. They scored something like 20 points. When you make as many bad decisions and take as many bad shots as the Devils do, they will find struggles against mediocre teams.

    Definition of insanity...

    He was a warrior on the court. Nice guy off the court.
