For the second straight year, ASU men's basketball coach Bobby Hurley has the Sun Devils off to an impressive start: a 5-0 record and a championship in the Main Event tournament in Las Vegas last week.
On Saturday, Hurley took in the Territorial Cup football game between ASU and UA -- and after the Sun Devils' incredible fourth-quarter comeback, he rubbed some salt in the Wildcats' wound via Twitter with three simple emojis.

Sun Devil fans loved the tweet, which has been retweeted nearly 500 times as of Saturday evening. But as one might imagine, Wildcat fans -- and at least one former UA player, linebacker Jake Fischer -- did not. Some noted Hurley has yet to defeat the Wildcats on the court.

With today's win, Herm Edwards has one more career victory over Arizona than Bobby Hurley. https://t.co/ttcohAGmGj

Hurley has already experienced a great deal of success in his three-plus years in Tempe, but he is 0-7 lifetime vs. the Wildcats -- 0-6 as ASU head coach, and 0-1 as a player at Duke. He'll get another chance to earn his first victory over UA when they face off in Tempe on Jan. 31.
