    He would give the Gophs a better chance to compete. It no way puts the U on par with any of those top 10 programs especially since he will be here one year and then your faced with a replacement you can not get.

    Matthew is a top 5 player in the country. He cant play 1 v5. His HS is very average besides him. He has to score 40 pts or they lose.

    Hes one of the best players to come out of MN. Garcia may he better but right now. He would instantly legitimize the Gophers to top 5 in B1G. Hes that good

    Very aware of how good he is. Was not worried about top 5 in the conference.

    Different coaching strategy. They absolutely have two college recruits on their team with other competent role players. The team is 7-5 overall and 4-3 in conference play with a player who is without a doubt top 5 in talent in the country. It's not Matthew Hurt's fault they have lost 5 of 12.
    Watch a game and it won't seem at all impossible any more that they could lose to most anyone.

    Go Gophers!

    It's not big city schools, it's big city school. They've lost in the section final every year to Lakeville North. His 9th and 11th grade years they were both great games with JM leading late in the game in both. JM should have probably won one if not both of those games. His 10th grade year JM had an injury to a very good guard and he didn't play, and then their other stud, who played JC for a year then signed with Nebraska (before he suddenly left) picked up his 3rd and 4th fouls early in the second half. Lakeville North was loaded that year (Ruevers was a senior and Wahl was a sophomore) beat them by 15-20 in that game. Lakeville North has been loaded and deep the last several years. I don't see JM beating them this year, but Hurt is a stud.

    Was at the section final when Matthew was a freshman and Reuvers a junior. Thought the two of them were about equal in that game. Close game that was decided at the end.

    JM couldn't buy a break against Lakeville from what I've been told. Also, doesn't LN have 5 guys that have to be guarded while JM usually has about 2 or 3 that need to be guarded.

    I was at the 9th and 10th grade years, and listened last year on the radio. Last it was really close the whole game, but JM was up in the last minute and ended up losing. No offense to LN and the rest of section 1AAAA, but I hope JM makes it this year. I watched Tyus Jones play several games in high school, and for me watching Hurt play is just as fun, if not more fun.

    In that particular game both teams were loaded. LN executed better at the end.

    Two years ago, when Hurt was sophomore, LN was super deep. JM had one of their stud guards hurt (no pun intended) and was out for the game. JM had a PG who I think plays D2, probably in the Northern Sun somewhere who did play in that game. JM also had a kid named Dedoch Chan who signed with Nebraska after a year of JC this past summer. So they had 4 pretty good players, but only three were able to play in that game, and Chan fouled out early after being in foul trouble right away. LN ended up winning by about 15-20 points. LN that year had Reuvers, who was a senior and plays at Wisconsin now, and also a kid named Wahl who is a senior this year and is going to Wisconsin next year. Plus they were about 9 or 10 deep, really athletic and really good. Once Chan fouled out, they were able to double Hurt with two guys who are going to play college basketball at Wisconsin. I liked Reuvers a lot coming out of high school, and wished he would have gone to the U of M, but watching both Hurt and Reuvers on the court together back when Hurt was a sophomore, it seemed like Hurt was definitely the better player, but LN was definitely the better basketball team. If JM would have been at full strength and not gotten into foul trouble, it probably would have been three great section finals 3 years in a row, but my guess is that LN's depth would have won out in the end.

    Well they have gone to state 7 years in a row, won it once with Macura, have two runner-up finishes, a 3rd and 4th place finish at state over that time, so they seem to have a pretty successful program the last several years.

    per Shooter:

    That was Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self and an assistant in Sioux Falls, S.D., the other day watching 6-9 Rochester John Marshall senior Matthew Hurt, who has been offered a tender by the Jawhawks.

    Interestingly, Hurt’s sister Katie, a 5-11 John Marshall ninth-grade player, has been offered a women’s basketball tender by Kansas.

    You're too kind. His teammates are far below average.

    Ben Simmons couldn't even get LSU to the NCAA tournament. He doesn't belong in the NBA.
