Hurley Hoping Kyle Anderson Gets Cleared

Hall of Fame St. Anthony coach Bob Hurley said he hopes UCLA freshman Kyle Anderson is cleared by the NCAA and  is able to compete this season.

The 6-foot-9 Anderson led St. Anthony to back-to-back New Jersey Tournament of Champions titles and a 65-0 record in his two seasons at the school. Among other things, the NCAA is looking into Anderson’s relationship with NBA agent Thad Foucher, who has a preexisting relationship with Kyle Anderson Sr. from their AAU days.

“I read about it, kind of read as much as I could about it and hope that it all gets resolved quickly because we’re going to try to see him over the Barclays Center in a few weeks [when UCLA plays in the Legends Classic Nov. 19-20],” Hurley told SNY.tv Thursday.

Anderson Sr. has known Foucher since the early 2000s through the AAU circuit, and Foucher met the son, known as “Lil Kyle,” when he was a youngster through his father. Before becoming an agent with the Wasserman Media Group, Foucher served as head coach of the New Orleans Jazz AAU Team from 1990-1998, according to his Wasserman bio.

The L.A. Times reported Saturday that the NCAA’s investigation into the 6-foot-9 Anderson and 6-5 wing Shabazz Muhammad is ongoing.
