Bobby Hurley loads up Arizona State’s schedule in his first season


Arizona State has really challenged themselves in Bobby Hurley’s first season in Tempe, as they have one of the tougher non-conference schedules that we’ve seen this season.

The headline games are strong. They are in the Legends Classic with three potential top 25 teams -- LSU, N.C. State and Marquette -and have a four-game stretch in December where they play at Creighton, Texas A&M at home, at Kentucky and at UNLV.

But it gets better, as the mid-major programs that Hurley has scheduled are solid as well. They begin the year with games against a pair of mid-majors that won 20 games last season -- Sacramento State and Belmont -- and also host Stephen F. Austin -- who has made back-to-back NCAA tournaments -- closer to Christmas time.

Here is the full schedule:

Fri, Nov 13: Sacramento State
Mon, Nov 16: Belmont
Wed, Nov 18: Kennesaw State
Mon, Nov 23-24: Legends Classic (N.C. State, then Marquette or LSU)
Sun, Nov 29: UC Santa Barbara
Wed, Dec 2: at Creighton
Sat, Dec 5: Texas A&M
Sat, Dec 12: at Kentucky
Wed, Dec 16: at UNLV
Sat, Dec 19: Houston Baptist
Tue, Dec 22: Stephen F. Austin
Mon, Dec 28: CSU Bakersfield
