T he question posed to Hurley coach Mike Swartz didn’t have a clear answer, but the fact he was being asked which of his team’s upset wins in the last 10 days was bigger shows how far the team has come from a 2-6 start to the season.
Hurley upset the Upper Peninsula’s No. 2 ranked team, Bessemer, Monday night, winning a 48-46 thriller. While it wasn’t a conference game like the 52-50 upset of Washburn on Jan. 18, it was against a local rival that had won its last nine games.
It was Hurley’s sixth-straight victory despite playing without starting guard Andy Hamlin (illness).
