Basketball powerhouse St. Anthony High to close, school president and Hall of Fame coach Bob Hurley announced - Apr 5, 2017

Bob Hurley won more than a thousand games as the basketball coach at St. Anthony High in Jersey City, but he announced Wednesday that the school will be closing on June 30 after failing to raise enough money to keep the doors open. 'We had a good run, huh?' he said inside the school. Hurley, 69, met with officials from the Archdiocese of Newark in Newark Wednesday afternoon and returned to the four-story schoolhouse on Bob Hurley Sr. Way by 2:30 p.m. to share the news with faculty as students were dismissed. "We need do something with all these kids," he said. "We've exhausted every idea." The school opened in 1952 and Hurley arrived 20 years later. He has served as the school's president the last three years, and carried out a fundraising campaign this school year that feel short of its goal in the end. He has been with the school for a half century. His team won four national championships - 1989, 1996, 2008 and 2011. He has collected more than 1,000 wins in his career, and was inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010. Enrollment is now at 160 students, and has dwindled over the last decade. Tuition at the school is $6,100 per student. Hurley has said it costs the school $14,000 to educate each student. St. Anthony's basketball team thrived throughout the year-to-year struggles, going 32-0 in 2015-16 to claim the school's 13th Tournament of Champions title. It was the eighth time a Hurley team went unbeaten. The Friars program has won 28 New Jersey state titles in Hurley's time, and more than 150 players, including Bobby Hurley, Terry Dehere and Kyle Anderson, have gone on to play college basketball. Hurley's two sons - Bobby and Danny - are the head coaches at Arizona State and Rhode Island, respectively. Former basketball player Jerry Walker was on site when Hurley made the announcement.

Nevada landed a big fish in five-star McDonald's All-American Jordan Brown (6'11''-C-99), a 6'10 power forward out of California. Brown is a big addition to the Wolfpack whether the Martin twins come back or not. If they are to return you can expect to find Nevada in just about every preseason top 10 poll. Eric Musselman is really bringing in a significant amount of talent to Nevada here recently and the Brown commitment is just extending the trend. Brown is a top 20 recruit and fifth-ran...   [read more]

Canadian guard Keshaun Saunders (G/F-99) has committed to the University of Toledo. "I was kind of stuck in between whether I wanted to be a midmajor player or a high-major player.
