//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js As he heads into his 43rd season at St. Anthony’s, Hurley is still having plenty of good days coaching basketball. He appears revitalized this year by the addition of three big African players — 6-foot-10 Daniel Mading (who holds offers from Florida, UConn and Arizona State, among others), 6-11 Oscar Okeke and 6-9 Akuwovo “Savior” Ogeneyole. Mading and Okeke are members of the Class of 2017, while Ogeneyole is 2018. They join the Georgetown-bound Mosely, 5-foot-11 transfer Asante Gist, 6-7 wing Kaleb Bishop and 6-foot guard Shyquan Gibbs to give the Friars a nucleus of strong talent. The Friars are also expecting Marial Mading, Daniel’s younger brother and a talented point guard, to arrive soon from Australia. “They’ve become a refreshing change here late in coaching,” Hurley said. “The African kids that are here — Oscar, Savior and Daniel — you can’t get them out of the gym. They’ve been amazingly capable of taking any classes. They’re immigrants. This is an opportunity for them. So they’re making some of the other guys look bad and it’s making some of these guys really pay attention to how they’re approaching things. Is everybody on the same page? Absolutely not but I think it’s going to be fun with this group.
