Sun Devil Men's Basketball at Pac-12 Media Day

Oct 25, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Head Coach Bobby Hurley was joined by guards DJ Horne and Desmond Cambridge Jr. in representing Sun Devil Men's Basketball at the 2022 Pac-12 Media Day on Wednesday.

The annual event was held at the Pac-12 Networks studios in San Francisco for the final time, as local and national media members were offered access to speak to the faces of each respective program. Coach Hurley attended his seventh Pac-12 Media Day, while Horne and Cambridge Jr. got their first taste of the festivities. The Maroon and Gold will also found out that they were slotted at seventh in the Pac-12 Preseason Media Poll. This comes on the heels of the Pac-12 All-Conference selections, in which the media selected Marcus Bagley and DJ Horne to the Preseason Second Team.

Arizona State's trio made live appearances on television, social media, and radio throughout the day, with plenty of attention getting paid to the talented Sun Devils. The 2022-23 hoops season will feature the most comprehensive coverage ever on Pac-12 Networks and it all begins with the coverage of Pac-12 Men's Basketball Media Day. A 146 men's basketball games will air on Pac-12 Network this season, as well as in-depth studio programming surrounding all men's league contests beginning in December. Both seasons will again culminate with broad coverage of the 2023 Pac-12 Men's Basketball Tournaments, presented by New York Life, from Las Vegas from March 8-11.

DJ Horne and Desmond Cambridge Jr. are expected to form a potent backcourt combination this season. The duo combined to average 28.7 points per game, the fourth-most of any returning duo in the Pac-12. Horne is the league's fifth-leading returning scorer among players that played in the league last year, while Cambridge is coming off earning Mountain West All-Conference distinction. Both guards were extremely effective from beyond the three-point arc, combining to make 160 three-point field goals in 2021-22. The spacing they provide figures to open up the inside for the much improved Sun Devil front line and allow even more opportunities for penetration.
