The freedom Bobby Hurley gives to players is often criticized, but it might end up saving ASU’s season – The Athletic

Associate head coach Rashon Burno sent the text at 5:49 p.m. Wednesday, about 27 hours before Arizona States home contest against UCLA.

Hey, are you getting shots up tonight?

Yeah I am, Kimani Lawrence answered.

Work on getting shots behind ball screens. Also, get some off the bounce one-dribble pull-up.

Aight, got you.

Lawrence was coming off perhaps his worst game of the season. In last Saturdays win at Washington, the junior forward attempted two shots. Both from 3-point range. Neither hit the rim. A capable shooter, Lawrence boarded the team bus 6 of 38 from the arc on the season.

A nightmare.

Once the Sun Devils returned to Tempe, Lawrence did the only thing he knew: He studied film from last season, watching himself drill 3-pointers. Then he went to the gym, turned on music and went to work, getting up nearly 1,000 shots a day. Before practice.
