Bobby Hurley Rooting Against Duke or His Brother URI Coach Dan Hurley?

Bobby Hurley Rooting Against Duke or His Brother URI Coach Dan Hurley?

There has been a connection ever since, which is why it is more than an interesting coincidence to see the Rhode Island team coach by Danny bracketed against Coach K's Duke Blue Devils in the second round of the 2018 tournament for a Saturday 2:40 p.m. ET game at PPG Paints Arena.

Duke uses four freshmen in its starting lineup.

"I think older guys, we tend to win games later on in the season and this is the flawless scenario to do it", Rhode Island fifth-year senior guard E.C. Matthews said.

Krzyzewski has been close with the Hurleys since coaching Bobby for four years, and he later recruited players from Bob Hurley Sr.at St. Anthony and from Dan at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark. Krzyzewski has lost in this tournament to many coaches less accomplished than he (that's everyone, ever) and almost all of them had less available talent.

Dan Hurley is the younger brother of former Blue Devil point guard Bobby Hurley. Those three points, though, represented the Hurley family's greatest gift to Mike Krzyzewski's Duke program.

"There would be times at practice where Bobby was working so hard, and I said, 'I can not believe he works that hard.' At that time, the StairMaster was a big thing in getting in shape. And then he would leave it on the StairMaster to say, 'If any of you suckers think you can beat that, try to beat it.' And he was in marathon runner shape".

Krzyzewski and Bob Hurley Sr. occupy the same real estate at 1000 Hall of Fame Avenue in Springfield, Mass. - and it was Krzyzewski who presented Bob Sr.at his induction. "They go at you both offensively and defensively". They show up every day. It dignifies them, whatever job they have. "Whether they said it that way or not, you know, we love the Hurley family".

"It's just been a relationship for years, and he's the standard for what you like to be as a coach at this college level", Hurley said of Krzyzewski. As for Duke, they needed a bounce-back as well from their tourney loss-and got it in a game that was never really in question. "We watched film on them, we're getting ready to play a good Rhode Island team".

"Of course we know who Rhode Island is".

Much harder than Krzyzewski and Duke went after the younger Hurley brother 25 years ago. I think there was some token recruitment though, I don't even think I got a home visit. Let me change that. I eliminated them from my list early on.
