The portal gives, and the portal takes. Heading into last season, Bobby Hurley brought in several newcomers to help get the Arizona State basketball program back on track. Among them was a guard from Illinois State. And like he had been for much of his career, he may have been overlooked...but not for long. By season's end, DJ Horne was ASU's leading scorer and a name to be known throughout the Pac-12.
Heading into this season, Horne is a cornerstone piece of the Sun Devil program, and as both the top scorer and a returner, he's grown into a leadership role with the squad.
On this episode, which we recorded the morning after the team's season opening win over Tarleton State, DJ and I discuss his promising debut as a Devil, how growing up in the North Carolina basketball scene prepared him for college ball, the strengths and areas of growth for this year's team, his goals, and so much more.
