Coach Evans And ASU Basketball Wish Suns And Sun Devil Fan Hardaway Luck

April 18, 2003

Coach Rob Evans and the ASU basketball program want to wish the Suns best of luck in the playoffs, especially to ASU 'fan' Penny Hardaway. Hardaway is showing off his ASU gear, which coincidentally was worn a few days following ASU's 84-71 win over Memphis in the NCAA Tournament.

'We want to wish the Suns best of luck in the NBA Playoffs this year, and we want to congratulate Frank Johnson and his staff for an outstanding year,' says Evans. 'It has been a great season of basketball in Phoenix this year, and we look forward to many more with both Arizona State and the Phoenix Suns.'

Evans also wants to wish a special good luck to a close friend, Penny Hardaway. Evans has known Penny for many years, but they now have a special connection.

'We are thrilled that Penny Hardaway is now a full-time Sun Devil fan, as of March 20.'

ASU beat Memphis 84-71 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on March 20. Hardaway was spotted with the t-shirt on days later.
