PARRINO: Hurley elevates UB hoops


Niagara Gazette —

White is young, has a vision for Bulls basketball and his ties to the Duke program (his dad is the Duke AD) seemingly helped him land a talented young coach with loads of potential.

Witherspoon's place in UB sports history, despite never reaching the NCAA tournament, is undeniable. He transformed a laughing stock basketball team into a respected, perennial contender, and his contributions to UB and the city of Buffalo should always be remembered.

Now UB moves forward and Hurley seems like the perfect fit for the job. Hopefully, in time, he'll need some time before his post-game press conference. In the halls of Alumni Arena, that's how you know you're doing it right.
