SEATTLE (AP) For the first time in the 14-year history of the Pac-12 Conference women's basketball tournament, Stanford will not be the No. 1 seed.
That fact alone makes the 2015 version noteworthy.

Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong already found his name in enough mock drafts that calling him a first-round pick wouldn't be looney. Arguably, the majority of draft experts see him there, even though Strong's speed has been his biggest criticism.

PHOENIX -- Arizona State wanted Tracy Smith to be its baseball coach because he did more with less in his long stays with Miami (Ohio) and, from 2006 through last season, Indiana. For the Sun Devils to pull him from the Midwest was a major coup.

The Sun Devils were hosting the No. 6 Wildcats Saturday and, to distract the opposing team's free-throw shooters, a creative bunch of fans unveiled a black curtain behind the net releasing herd of twerking young men in various...
Part of the fun of being in college is acting like a total idiot and having no one think lesser of you. You are in college. Sometimes you are supposed to be an idiot--like when you are at a basketball game and the opponent is trying to make a free throw. As a fan of the home team you should do whatever you can to distract the opposition from making his shot.If that means dressing...
