AMHERST, NY - (WKBW) Bobby Hurley's road to Western New York has been anything but ordinary. The first-year head men's basketball coach at UB brings with him some serious credentials.

A college basketball star in the early 1990's, he lead Duke to back-to-back national championships. He was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 1993. Then, his life changed forever.

Eyewitness Sports Anchor Shawn Stepner tells the inspiring story of how Hurley overcame a life-threatening car accident, and how it's helping inspire his players.
