ASU Women's Basketball

The Sun Devils came into this year's NCAA Tournament with their highest seed ever, but that didn't seem to matter when put up against the legendary Tennessee Volunteers on Sunday.

Seventh-seeded Tennessee handled Charli Turner Thorne's team for a 75-64 win yesterday at Wells Fargo Arena, closing the book on one of the most successful seasons in program history.

The maroon and gold finished the season with a record 26-7, while the Volunteers improved to 21-13 with the victory. They march on to next week's Sweet Sixteen, where a matchup with Ohio State awaits them.

ASU Football

Spring football is now well underway, and defensive lineman George Lea is as ready as anyone to be back in the swing of things. A redshirt freshman, Lea was suspended for all of last season after a strange BB gun incident in the summer.

He now appears to have put the arrest behind him and is ready to compete for some major playing time in 2016. The competition on the line will be a heated battle throughout the spring and into the fall, but Lea should be right in the middle of it.
