Former professional basketball player, Bobby Hurley was born June 28, 1971 in Jersey City, New Jersey and is the current head coach at Arizona State University.
Hurley was a point guard for Duke University's men's basketball team from 1989-1993. He was a first-team All-American in 1993, went to the Final Four three times, and led the Blue Devils to back-to-back national championships in 1991 and 1992, earning Final Four MVP honors in 1992. Hurley remains the NCAA all-time assists leader with 1076 assists, and Duke's single game assist leader with 16 (against Florida State on February 24, 1993). His Duke jersey number #11 was retired in 1993. In 2002, Hurley was named to the ACC 50th Anniversary men's basketball team as one of the fifty greatest players in Atlantic Coast Conference history.
Hurley was selected by the Sacramento Kings as the 7th pick in the 1993 NBA Draft. While returning home following a game in December of his rookie season, Hurley's Toyota 4Runner was slammed into by a painter named Daniel Wieland. Hurley was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from his truck, and suffered life-threatening injuries. Kings teammate Mike Peplowski was driving 5 minutes behind Hurley, and was first on the scene to render immediate aid. Hurley returned to the NBA for the 1994-1995 season, and played four more years beyond that. After retiring, Hurley went on to become a thoroughbred racehorse owner and breeder.
