Former SBVC standout now in Bakersfield

Former San Bernardino Valley College basketball standout Lance Hurdle is playing for the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA’s Developmental League. He was a fifth-round draft selection by that team earlier this month.

Hurdle, a native of San Diego, is coming off a two-year run at the University of Miami. He spent his freshman and sophomore seasons leading the backcourt at SBVC.

The D League is equivalent to what professional baseball has in the minor leagues. Guys that show some potential can indeed get a shot at the next kevel.
